āmeseginalehu

āmeseginalehu means ‘thank you’ in Amharic. One word you’ll say the whole day as the people in Ethiopia are thankful and so are we for them!

We’ve moved to Old Airport in Addis Ababa two months (dec 2019) ago and days flew by. We are surrounded by beautiful people from all over the world who share their experiences to make our start in Addis Ababa relatively ‘easy’.

Experience it!

My bucket list .. it is a never-ending work in progress, continuously updated and being altered. But having a bucket list, is to have a life and utilize it fully before it’s knocked off from under your feet!

This bucket list will hopefully grow with lots of ‘stil-to-be-discovered-on-this-world’-sights, and please feel free to add yours! I also hope some will disappear from this list and will be added to an blog article where I can tell you how I’ve experienced it.

Im Viadukt in Zürich West it is!

Where can I find the boutique industrial cool area of Zürich?? When visiting a city I’m dying for getting inspired, boutique shopping, studio-gallery strolling, eating delicatesses and getting impressed by people on the street. No bankers, no discerning shoppers, but more the urban-fashion-bohemian-trendy-art-lovers. So where is this area? I know they have it in Zürich; the home to the largest techno street party! But where?

Yes I discovered it! Im Viadukt, Zürich West, Kries 5, it is!

The leaves fall for you

autumn wundertisch 2018

It is officially fall since September 23rd but here in Switzerland it still feels like summer. Calendar-wise you know you should start getting autumn in your house but the bikini-kinda-life removes these thoughts. A little voice in me tells me there is still no need to get into the fairy pumpkin world. So I created my online pumpkin-free-summerish-autumn-wundertisch and for the ones who can’t resist these thoughts… sst…ok, bring on the pumpkins.

3x refreshing cocktails for the summer breeze

I love cocktails, especially in the summer at the end of the day. On holidays around 5 o’clock I take my first one when the sun is losing a bit of its heat, I’ll add the heat with a cocktail.

My favorite & ok-to-make cocktails this summer are:

  1. Good Old Bloody Mary
  2. Gin & Tonic with Grapefruit & Rosemary
  3. Watermelon-Basil Lime Soda Cooler (mocktail)

I have added the recipes below. I have found these on other great websites and gave them a twist to add my flavor to it. Don’t forget: ssst…make the cocktail, pause for a little bit … & drink!

Golden start of the day

I’m always looking for healthy ways of living, but … practical and eatable. This means it shouldn’t cost me a lot of time, especially in the morning. We are busy enough to get on time for our first appointment. And at least, it should taste normal. Sometimes I got tips about heathy things and they just taste disgusting. Think of using goat milk in your coffee instead of cow milk…this will indeed screw up your favo coffee break. And don’t touch that break! It’s one of my best breaks during the day. Will tell you more about it in my blog ‘Dying for a Coffee Break’ in a couple of weeks.

OK back to the subject … It’s always good to start the day in a healthy way. The Golden morning shot is the golden start of the day. And why? It is healthy and takes 5 minutes to make ones a week and 20 sec to do daily. Isn’t that easy!
