The colours of a stroll

Autumn has arrived fast this side of the planet and with it luckily not only the cooler temperatures and the shorter days, but also a softer light.

I thought to take you on a stroll to open spaces with me today and let you smell flowers, be amazed by the variety of colours, and look at a stunning fruit.

Sneakers on? Then let’s go :0)!

Sardinia: Santa Maria ‘e Mare

Has it also happened to you that you were travelling and/or on holidays and you were at the right place at the right time?

While I love to read the section about local festivities in travel guides, my travel itinerary does not match these dates very often as I don’t normally plan around them. Well, I was lucky in Sardinia where magic happened in front of my eyes. I’d like to share it with you.

Doors

Doors have such a symbolic meaning. In life and in the world.

You never know which door will lead towards your dreams, until you have the courage to walk through it.

Unknown

But they are also just so fascinating to look at. Only recently, I started to see them in a different light in that they caught my eye more and more and now I see gorgeous doors everywhere. Imagine they could talk to us. Would you sit down and listen?

Sweet old lady

Good day dear readers, how are you in this moment?

Let me share some of my week as the story I tell you today emerged on Tuesday. It was splendid, we laughed a lot in my classroom, I spent time on the balcony with my hubby enjoying warm summer evenings (albeit unusual in September ) by candlelight and as I am writing to you I am in the train on my way to my favourite region in Switzerland. The French-speaking part. More precisely, today I go where my beloved grandma used to live and the place is actually bilingual as it sits right where the German- and French-speaking part meet.

Coincidentally, the heart-warming story I love to share with you today is also about a granny.

A toast to one hundred

Here comes my 100th story – hooray – and I would like to take you to the mountains to cheer.

Shortly after the lockdown was lifted here, my hubby and I were ready to go exploring again (<— click for some awesome Swiss landscapes we saw). Travelling to a region in the Bernese Alps where we have not spent that much time yet, the weather and the time was perfect for hiking.

So we went. Starting in one small village up through forest, wildflower meadows, along a mountain stream, at some point sharing the path with cows munching on rich pasture, and then reaching the height overviewing the whole Alpine valley and spotting a house…
