Christmas is not just about puppies and Glühwein. The start of the colder months sees your average Swiss citizen (and me for that matter,) lunging for a bucket of melted cheese. But where to get it? You could head to the local supermarket but i have discovered a wonderful website where you can really pimp your fondue and create it to your taste. Stronger cheese? No problem? Spicy chilli? Sold. Want beer, wine or even prosecco. Pour it in. But best of all it’s locally sourced cheese milk and products from Einsiedeln in Canton Schweiz. Be aware that the website is in German but it the fondue creator is fantastic and the website is great.
Switzerland is full of surprises but if you have travelled to the Ticino by car the «perm-a-jam» at the Gotthard tunnel will not be one. Recently, in an attempt to avoid it i travelled along the Rhône valley which runs between

Hi, We are based in Oberhasli, Zurich, and are looking for somebody to sit a few hours with our cat. We are away between Thursday 14/04 and Monday 19/04, and don't want him to get lonely. If you would like to pay our cat company while reading a book, doing your home office, or would like to stay overnight, we and Ninja would be very happy. Price negotiable, email me [email protected], and help on only some days would be sufficient, since we will have somebody come and feed him daily anyways.
We are designer Dasha Podoltseva and architect Elena Orap, founders of Urban Design Project SERIA___ from Kyiv, Ukraine. We devoted it to the typical housing blocks – panelkas – in which most of us, Ukrainians grew up. Panelkas are part of our identity. They are touched by cultural and historical shifts, which we are experiencing and exploring.
Starting February 24th, 2022, with the beginning of the full-scale war in Ukraine, hundreds of such buildings have been destroyed and thousands damaged. Many of them won’t be restored.
That is one more reason why want to share the beauty of our heritage. On the 30th June, we invite you to the opening of the Exhibition “Fragile Architecture” (curated by Tetiana Kartasheva and Marina Donina) where we present a collection of our design items to the audience in Zurich.
We are lucky to have the support of VN Residency, which provides the venue and hosts our special events. The artworks are packed and ready to be shipped from Kyiv. The great team of volunteers works daily to make it happen. However, we lack funding for transportation, promotion, and some materials for the display. Would you join our team by supporting our project?
