Interesting fact, Vevey in Switzerland became the village where the great Charlie Chaplin decided to settle down with his wife after being denied entry into the US (due to McCarthyism).  Living in Switzerland had a positive effect on the great actor, director and filmmaker who had four children, all born in Switzerland.  They are both buried …

Open Cellar Weekend in Vaud

Have you ever seen Swiss wines on shelves in your local super markets or wine stores?  Does that mean that Swiss wines are not good? The answer to both of these questions is a negative one.  Their wines are wonderful, especially the white’s and the rose’s.  They simply do not export them as they are …

Roooney!

Renewed!!!

Tonight I renewed our memberships with Manchester United Supporter’s club, now I’m just wondering what brilliant game to go to next year.  The QPR game is close to my birthday, but on the other hand the season starts with a bang at the theater of dreams with Liverpool on the 22/9 and Tottenham on the …

Me and Max

What a beautiful day!

Today was great, actually we woke up pretty early given the fact that we’d both been having a night out, Charlotte at Annette’s Bachelorette party and I playing Fifa and watching the Championship League final with Claes and Koray.  Both events had been fairly good although, Charlotte’s ended fairly badly as one of the group …

Budapest

Trip to Budapest

Last Easter I found, to my surprise a trip to Budapest rather than the usual chocolate that comes in my Easter egg.  I don’t know if that was a subtle hint from my wife that I needed to work on my waistline, but it was a welcome surprise as the city has been on our …
