Morning walks.

In the mornings when the light is still crisp, I walk to work. There are many different routes I can pick, some take longer than others, but all of them allow for spontaneous detours. They lead me to the most picturesque parts of this city, where later in the day and on weekends the tourists will roam. But in the early hours I have them mostly to myself. Sometimes I spot some early birds, camera and travel guide in hand, or others like me on their way to work or university. In the morning I can pretend to be many things, an explorer, a photographer or maybe just a tourist in my own hometown, and when I sit at my desk, facing the tasks for the day, I can always already look back on those little experiences and silent encounters.

Can I go back?

You might have realised that my blogposts become more and more a-chronological. I have to admit, that I enjoy this quite a lot, as it allows for some time travel. I am happy to take you on those trips with me, dear reader.

Spring is near

The change of seasons from winter to spring makes me feel like a kid on the day of her birthday party. Life outside reboots and the city reminds you what a great place it is. The rowers prepare their rowboats, my beloved Frauenbadi – this beautiful old bath-house floating in the Limmat – is patiently waiting for summer, the chairs on the Sechseläutenplatz are all occupied with happy faces and the people flock back to the lake and the riverside for walks, drinks and even the first barbecues. Oh and the light is just magical!
