Autumn Holidays with Friends…

Over this past autumn holidays, we had a couple of friends from Singapore staying with us. It was so lovely having them with us for a week. Of course, we took them to some touristy spots but we also got the opportunity to visit a couple of places we have not been to ourselves, such as the sweet little village of Stein am Rhein and the Lavaux-Vinorama (Vevey).

Here are a few photo highlights:

We also visited a chocolate factory we have never been to before but I was so focused on the chocolate and chocolate making, I didn’t take any nice photos. But it’s a chocolate factory I would recommend – Camille Bloch Chocolate Factory.

Looking forward to more friends coming next year.

Summer Hols Photo Summary 2022

This summer it was back to normal programming for our annual visit to Singapore. No more tests or quarantine, just need to be fully vaccinated (3 jabs). And because the last week of school for the Son was project week and he could do that anywhere, we went early and stayed for 4 weeks.

Besides the usual; time with family and meeting friends, eating favourite foods and shopping, part of this trip was about preparing for the Son’s move to Singapore next year to do his military service. At least, we tried to make a start by clearing some space in the cupboards so he can have somewhere for his stuff.

We definitely enjoyed ourselves and it felt good to be able to freely meet up with people again. Here are some photos:

Retreat at a Beautiful Location

In early June, we were at our church retreat in lovely Davos. We stayed at the great little family-run Hotel Seebüel. Here are some pictures:

It was a fun, relaxing and educational retreat where we got to know our church members better and enjoyed being in the beautiful nature which God has created.
