We’ve been living in Oslo for a bit over a year now. My husband and I are keen foodies. We love going out to restaurants. We enjoy cheap and cheerful joints as well as fancy 3 Michelin starred restaurants. This time, my husband was tasked to book a place for our…

As mentioned in a previous post, it’s not that easy to find places to eat at lunch as most restaurants only open for dinner, from 3pm. For us, lunch is much more convenient as we can bring the kids along on week-ends and it allows me catch up with friends and…

Why did we chose Austria for our winter holidays? Last year we discovered the amazing concept of Kinderhotels where you can leave your children with the Kids club for up to 12 hours a day so that you and your partner can go skiing, enjoy the sauna, steam bath, pool and…

My friends Bev is still in town with her hubby and two boys. With my husband coming back for the week-end, we organised a get away to beautiful Luzern, one hour drive from Zürich. This is the very place to visit in Switzerland. It’s where I saw the most people…
