Bern and Zurich

Day three. SUNDAY.   Heading out to the Paul Klee Museum in Bern we had little luck finding an open restaurant through our google search so with nuts and jerky in my pack we boarded the train.    The ride isn’t as beautiful as through the alps but it is interesting and has its moments. Today I […]

Lunch in Baden at Stadtbistro Isebahnli

And it was a very good lunch I had. Worth the search I did in the rain. Its sort of hidden on the back side of the block behind some construction and under a bridge adn it was raining and I did not have an umbrella so my Google Map was covered in rain but […]

All the Trains to Sierre for Fondue

A day of train adventure. With our passes in hand and some reading behind us we thought rather than just heading out on one of the panoramic routes we would piece together our own day of mountains and train rides. Heading out of Baden about 9:30 am we took the trains to Zurich to Erstfeld to […]

Baden and Lucerne

Ahhhh, we arrive in Baden late at night and wake the next day to explore the town, see where we are and figure out what to do. Baden is lovely, quiet, clean, peaceful.  Hilly but not exhaustingly so.  We wandered into a number of well positioned underpasses where there was a market and an after […]

Goldman Gallery & Grolier Club

Such a lovely day and back in NYC. After a morning of errands I found myself looking up at the Hermes store. At first I didn’t know what it was, I just knew that I wished I could get to the top. So, I followed a stream of people inside and wow. Really beautiful. With […]

The Poutinerie

Lunch on the street at Brick Lane Sunday Market. And a name to know. Super delicious with super hot hot sauce. And a pulled pork on top!

St. Albans!!! The Pudding Stop & all the restaurants

So many things about the UK are different and so many words we assume we know that we don’t. Last week I learned that curry is the generic term to describe all Indian food, uh, no. It was while we were having dinner at the Taste of Raj in Southgate that I finally figured it […]

Kew Gardens at Christmas time & Petite Coree

I have meant to go to Kew a few times this past year when the weather has been right knowing it would be a big walk around and I was right. We lucked out that the night we got there the air was cold but not freezing, the weather was dry and there was no […]

BEST DAY EVER – BELMONTE & MONSANTO

Belmonte was home to a group of crypto Jews, some of whom still reside there today. There are a number of other museums and a castle and for 10 Euro you can see them all. Our day started with the long drive from Coimbra eastward. We passed through mountains and valleys mainly staying on the […]
