Tony Bennett

Tony Bennett here we come

We’ve decided to go to the Montreux Jazz festival in July to see Tony Bennett.   He’s one of the last Crooners and it would be shame let him pass through Switzerland without seeing this old timer. We’re looking a lot forward to this, Bob Dylan will also be playing but we’ll watch the Steve …

Big Bang Theory

Recently I started to watch TV series that have been going on for a while called “The Big Bang Theory”. The series are about 4 nerds along with their neighbour, a typical Californian girl called Penny.

After a short google search we found out that the leaves are excellent for salads (great as a rucola replacement), the flowers are great to make …

A Knight is born …

There was a market in Nyon today with more than 100 different vendors selling everything from used clothes to antiques.  It was fun to go around and have a look at all the different booths and lo and behold at the last booth, I found a real sword! The sword is a real iron sword, …

Volcanic Eruption in Iceland

Not again …

This weekend I spent a great weekend with Kristjan, Berglind and Fanney, but on Saturday evening another volcanic eruption started!  This time it was Grimsvotn, which decided to change the travel plans of thousands of people.  This time around the ash was more visible and basically sat as a layer below the cloudline in the …
