Tokyo Day #1: Through the Side Streets of Shibuya

After landing in Tokyo at 6 a.m. we quickly dropped off our luggage at the hotel – dismissing the thought of a nap and a hot shower after a 12-hour flight. Check-in will not be possible until 3 p.m. they told us. So the metro took…

100 Day Project

Last year in April, I attempted to take part in the 100 Day Project by The Great Discontent. The whole thing sounded simple, all you had to do was to chose a medium (pen and paper), find a topic (something from my day) and keep…

The Sideboard Question

Back in June 2014 we moved into our apartment here in Zurich. Ever since we have been looking for a perfect sideboard for our living room to store glassware, records and half of our house bar. On top it should host my record player,…

The First Week of March 2016

The first week of March was mostly grey and cold. There was even some snow. Work kept me busy during the week and on the weekend we had visitors over from Munich for food, talks and a visit to the thermal bath. Here are…
