It is Monday, one day before my first formal job interview after a long time. I am in Zurich and go to that particular shoe shop called “Peter & Vreni“.

Four seasons: Spring feelings in Zurich

Everything is waking up. Nature. People. Children. Ideas. More light, more energy. It is a special time of the year. Grey and brownish tones of the landscape change for shiny green and colorful garden and meadows. People add to their dark shaded winter dress a few more color splashes. A rather grey Zurich becomes colorful.Continue reading “Four seasons: Spring feelings in Zurich”
