About

I’m a writer living in Switzerland. I’ve published several short stories in Anthologies and literary journal. I write my stories in German – my mother tongue. Nevertheless this blog is held in English and on rare occasions in French.

  1. Switzerland, eh? That explains why that ‘weed’ – Convolvulus – looks so pretty and benign!

    PS My oldest friend lives in Turbenthal – I’ve been visiting since 1972 – so I do have a bit of a soft spot for you Swiss:)

    • Thank you, but I can’t take credit being swiss, because I’m relocated from Germany (that also explains my poor English). If I was swiss I could speak proper french by now and I would know where Turbenthal is and I could ski…

      • Far from every Swiss german speaks proper French, and the other way around neither. Some do, but they are an exception.
        Welcome to a land of deep cultural differences, but nevertheless keeping its national cohesion.
        Greeting from the French speaking part ;-)

        • Thank you, madman.
          French is such a hard language. One day I think I got it know, the next day is like I have to start again, …
          Yes, I’ve already meet the deep cultural differences of swiss people which suprises me everytime anew. I hadn’t expected that…

  2. I love your blog and your beautiful touches into the words and photographs… Thank you for all your beautiful sharing with us. Blessing and Happiness, love, nia

    • Thanks. I do my best and hope it is readable. No, I’ve never been to Zurich (what a shame). I live in French speaking part of Valais, so I don’t have any practice in Swizerdütsch, but I get if it is not too hard because I come from the south of Germany.

  4. Hello,

    I saw your commentary on travelspirit333′s Barcelona trip. You said you stayed in this city for a couple of weeks.

    I am working on a music video for an original song dedicated to Barcelona. I was wondering if you have any stock video footage left over from your trip that I could use in my music video?

    I am in love with this city and am trying to make a video collage about it.

    Here is the link to a tumblr blog with more details: http://shareyourbarcelona.tumblr.com/

    Otherwise, I’ll be happy to answer any questions about the project,

    Thank you,

    Olga

    • Hi Olga,

      Sorry, but no, I don’t have any video footage neither digital pics. It is quite a while ago since I had been there and back then I still took pictures with an old ricoh camera, for nostalgic reasons and because I always trail behind technical stuff. I just own a digital camera for about 3 years or so…

      But I am looking forward to follow your project. It looks really interesting.
