The summer in Basel is hot, vibrant and full of life. The people in this beautiful city spent their spare time outside and everybody gathers at and in Rhine. „Rheinschwimmen“ (swimming in Rhine) is very popular and during the summer months you can see thousands of people swimming. After the swim it is relaxing time and the locals love to grab a refreshing drink or some delicious food at the buvettes along the river. A buvette is a kind of kiosk, bar or café mostly in a container which sells beverage and food. Every year the buvettes are build up in the beginning of spring and they remain there till the fall begins. Sometimes you can listen to a small improvised concert of street musicians.

Since I had to cancel all my travelling abroad plans this year, I am doing a lot of hiking in my country. This is the fabulous views you get when hiking my favourite valley: Val di Muggio. It's the southernmost valley in Switzerland: wild, unspoiled + full of history. On clear days, you can see Monte Rosa + the Matterhorn.
When my daughter was 6 we were looking for something to occupy our evenings. She had her brother's old (think vintage) telescope but we had no way of know what we were looking at. With a quick google search I found several apps that would help us identify the twinkling dots above. We were enthralled by the new discoveries and would stay up later and later to watch Mars appear over the horizon or catch the ISS zoom pass. It was a wonderful mother daughter bonding experience as she was allowed to stay up late and handle my phone as we panned the night sky from a near by field. Then we'd walk home hand in hand talking about what we'd seen. Even now we still keep an ear out for any exciting developments like the SpaceX zooming pass or NEOWISE comet ( which we both saw) It was a very special time and one I'll always treasure.
From breathtaking Unesco’s World Heritage sites to its astonishing beaches, authentic food, culture, outdoor film festivals, colorful fares, and diverse towns.

Reigate is a vibrant market town, very close to where I live, full of restaurants, bistros, cafes, boutique shops and entertainment. It has a beautiful park for all sorts of activities, which hosts outdoor cinema in the summer and an ice rink in the winter. It nestles under the Surrey Hills and the North Downs way for hiking. It is only half an hour from London and less than an hour to the sea!
Frankfurt has a long tradition of selling fresh products on the streets. There have been farmers' markets in Frankfurt since the 12th century.
