This little family is vacationing in the swiss alps. We had three fantastic warm days in Zurich and are now in the rainy Appenzell region. We realize how spoiled we are with rainy weather in NYC. When it rains it’s still warm, not here, it’s freezing. We are crossing our fingers for pool weather. Below are a few impressions of our trip so far. More to Come!
Right off the plane we went to FREITAG to check out their factory where the upcoming CreativeMorning will take place on July 17th. Sascha gave us a full blown tour of their production hall. Truly fascinating what the FREITAG brothers have created. Hat tip!
G and I are enjoying our daily Rivella. Rivella is a healthy and natural soft drink from Switzerland. What’s unique about Rivella is the wholesome lactoserum it contains (called milk serum in Switzerland). Sounds crazy, right?
These signs in the Zurich Tram had G and me laugh out loud. The swiss do have a sense of humor, after all. We especially love the guy with the saw, trying to cut apart one of the seats. No, you really shouldn’t do that.
Now if this isn’t ueber-swiss I don’t know what is: Typical condiments arrangement you see at restaurants.
A slice of my childhood: Sausages (wienerli), two slices of bread (Ruchbrot) and Moustard (Thomy Senf). This makes me happy.
I have introduced our little three year old Ella to the 40 year old Rakete Icecream and she fully approves.
Today’s an exciting day: I am being interviewed and photographed for a story that will be in next thursday’s Tagesanzeiger, one of Switzerland’s biggest newspapers. Yay!
