Finally the Swiss hybrid car "Mindset" is approved and runs. Congrats, this must be it - ecofriendly and smart. Let's hope the car makes it into production, the time is right and yes, let's say good-bye to the oil-burner.

Bernina Hospiz 1905, Graubuenden

The Bernina Hospiz close to St. Moritz in the Swiss mountains still looks the same today. What was an important travel stop in the past is now a highlight for discovering the some historic places in the Swiss mountains. Stay there, enjoy the alps, go for a walk in the nature and after a day, you become a mountaineer!

‘A Coney Island kinda girl’


” … I have found myself sitting on the boardwalk or walking barefoot on the wet sand, where the waves break on the shore line, and poetry just ran through my veins. The fluidity from with which the thoughts and language would run through me felt like an intravenous drip of uncut magic. I’ve never really tried to decipher the mystery of the sand at Coney Island. Instead, I’ve accepted it and embraced it as part of the reason why I’ll always be a Coney Island kinda girl.” - Nikki-Jo Grossman, Coney Island Examiner.

After the rain

I love the public bath called "Unteren Letten" where you can jump into the river Limmat. I met with Michael, we had a swim and went for the river bar to sip some beers and suddenly, there was a heavy summer rain which lasted just minutes. The evening light after the rain mixed with the falling night and it looked just gorgeous.

It's stylish, fresh and modern. And when did you last see a private interior garden full with trees?
