A very merry Christmas it was indeed

The holidays are over and we’re already in the middle of January. After spending the last two Christmases in Ireland myself and the little one were in for a treat this year. The month of December is so full of traditions and a time I miss my Swiss home the most. So it was with […]

… a little London living

One of the first things I learnt when moving to Ireland is, that if you’re Irish you leave Dublin for Paddy’s day. The parade is less than exciting and come 2 o’clock the whole town is swamped with drunks and all the smells they come with. There’s normally great festivities all over the country but […]

It’s just a magical time of three weeks dedicated to sports be it summer or winter. There’s a special spirit about it and I was absolutely over the moon to get a […]

Exciting weekend plans

We have tickets for Crosscountry day. For non riders, that’s where crazy people jump massive jumps made from natural material so […]

Holidays at home

Time flies, it’s unreal. But I guess it’s a good complaint cause it means I’m busy and I like being busy. It’s already over a week since I’m back from Switzerland and my travel report is well overdue. I’ve decided to just let some picture speak for the fab time I’ve had… of course with […]
