Winter 2018-19 {Favourites}

It’s been quite a while since I published a favourites post! As you probably know, the last three months have been some of the busiest in our lives. Christian and I moved from London, UK to Zurich, Switzerland, with one month in Canada in between. That meant living out of suitcases for the better part of two months, until we flew to Europe and got our boxes out of storage in Italy (we shipped our things to Christian’s parents house). Today I’m writing from my comfy chair in the living room of our new apartment in Kilchberg - we moved in just under a week ago. It feels so good to finally have a place to call home again!

As busy and hectic as things were, a lot of really amazing things happened during the last three months as well. From emotional leaving parties, travelling around to visit good friends, and spending time in Canada with family to attending a Parisian wedding and learning a new city, there has been endless lists of favourite things. I’ve tried to organise my favourites by city - with a mix of food, fun activities and my favourite nature spots. I hope you enjoy reading through and exploring the different links!
