  • The reason I am slow
    on Feb 28, 2011
    Hello people. I have an announcement to make. I'm pimping my blog, with the help of a freelancer, so not only are my posts all on hold for the next week or so, they site itself will be down while I transfer my domain to it's new host. In the meant...
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal in Zurich
    on Feb 21, 2011
    If this ↓ happens to me, I will be posting a long account of it, but most likely I will just be a bit puffy. Except, well, I will be in the hands of a very reliable Swiss Dentist, so most likely I will be fit as ever the next day, if not fitter...
  • Fun Times and Culture Shock in the US
    on Feb 17, 2011 in Culture shock
    So, my first ever visit to New York and my first trip to the US since I was 11 took place last week and I came back an enlightened being. As soon as I knew I was going to Boston for a business meeting, I made it my mission to realise a detour to New...
  • Hurghada - Next time we will go backpacking
    on Feb 11, 2011
    The owner of this blog is back and ready to update you on what's been keeping her busy. Apologies for the extended absence, I have many an excuse to throw at you, but I hope the fact that I have bruised ribs from Bronchitis is good enough to keep me...
  • Guess who didn't witness ANY of the Egyptian political uproar while in Egypt?
    on Jan 31, 2011
    Hello all! I am back in Zurich and tackling the joys of having reached the height of relaxation - the point at which your body feels so relaxed that any activity that is not entirely hedonistic causes the body to go into shock and break down. In sho...
  • Gone to Egypt!
    on Jan 20, 2011
    Contrary to what many of you may be assuming, I am not trapped under an avalanche or bed bound due to excessive fondue guzzling. I am on holiday in Egypt and promise to have a gazillion updates prepared for when I get back. In the meantime you can...
  • Although I don't classify myself as a "blogger" per se....
    on Jan 5, 2011 in Some thoughts to kill time
    almost all the bloggers in my feed are doing this and now I'm a bit tempted to do it myself. So, let's talk about personal New Year Revolutions ("resolution" sounds too religious and anal to me). ★Continuation of the sugar ban★ My body thanked...
  • Now I get it
    on Dec 29, 2010
    My Canadian friend back in Japan once told me that Japanese winters were hardly even worthy of the label "winter". He told me that being cold is a state of mind and that if you stop thinking about the cold so much, take your focus away from it, then...
  • Hallelujah! Britain does it again!
    on Dec 20, 2010 in Oh so British
    Just in case anyone had forgotten how much I love the British transport system: This is the queue for the Eurostar - 500m long. The British are famed for having a natural tendency to form queues, but this is taking it to an extreme. If it doesn't...
  • We need some snowmen in Zurich.
    on Dec 17, 2010
    It's properly snowing today in Zurich. I have to say, despite this being my second winter here, the snow creeping up to ankle height is still a novelty for me. I love trudging through snow and I even enjoy running in the snow; it pads out the roads t...
