Extraordinary Train Station

Do you use public transport on a regular basis? Then surely, you know exactly when to leave home or any other place in order to just timely catch your bus, tram, train, ferry, whatsoever.

I do. I am usually not a whole lot too early ;0).

Maybe because it had to be that I entered this passage to the platforms early… For what I got presented with was simply mind-boggling and not something I had ever seen before.

Two years of blogging

Two years ago, we would never have thought, let alone dared to imagine, that something like what we see and experience in the world right now would ever be possible.

The coronavirus made the human madness stop in the blink of an eye.

It not only stops us from craziness for example but also makes very clear that we are all equal and interconnected. Read more

Grapevines over the seasons

Greetings from Montreux

On my way home from Montreux I’d like to send you some warm greetings from this french-speaking city in Switzerland beautifully nestled on the shore of Lake Geneva.

Foremost, Montreux is world famous for its Jazz Festival that takes place every July here. It will be the 54th edition in 2020.

But it is December now and Christmas is the most present topic when you stroll along the shore where you find a Christmas market with a view and everything you fancy. Read more

An eye on grapevines in December

Dear readers

How are you today?

Can you believe it is December and also the last month of this series on grapevines over the seasons? It has been such a journey for this awesome plant, don’t you agree? Feel free to wonder at it (all over again) by clicking on each month’s unveiling: October, September, August, July, June, May, April, March, February.

I got so lucky to see the beauty of a vineyard while it was snowing. Everything was so silent and magical in a very special way. I hope you can feel it, too, through this post.
