Changing colors

It has been a busy last couple of months and I missed it to share some pictures / experiences here. I moved to Zurich, I started my bachelor studies about Medicine Informatics in Biel and even was able to go to Ukraine for a short weekend. Despite the stress of preparing for exams every other week, I enjoy studying again a lot. Here some shots from last couple of weeks:

I had to travel to Ukraine to experience “real” snow. In Switzerland the snow had melted away very fast. I was asked by a Swiss company to go and visit a partner and see how they are doing. It was great to meet up with some friends! Sad that I was able to stay there only stay for two nights. 🙁

A picture after riding a night train for six hours, pretty much sleepless, very loud, in a shaking bed. It was only a foretaste of the following night for my ride back to Kyiv…

I might write a separate post about what I actually did in Ukraine. For now I tell you that I was able to see 70’000 sleeping bees 😀

Enjoy the weather !

Better than grumbling about the weather

People not living in north Switzerland might have troubles understanding this situation 😛 The weather in the last couple of weeks is really messed up. Weather forecasts telling you that there is rain all week and a day can be like: raining cats and dogs in the morning, at lunch it is sunny and too warm to wear a jacket, in the evening it rains again…

Today I decided to find another geocache that is near our living place. Geocaching is the most popular puzzle game in nature, I started with this some years ago (sorry I still wrote in German back then). Looking at the description, I thought that should be a simple one. So I invited my mum to join me.

The location of the cache we found pretty fast and I was able to see him up in the trees. Trying to get TO the cache was another thing. “We ought NOT to climb, but to find a tool”, it said in the description. Out of the blue it started pouring. In a matter of seconds we were drenched with water! We tried hiding in the bushes, but it was kinda late 😀

Finally I found a stick and was able to get the cache. Unfortunately there was a more clever construction behind it than I expected. You would just need to pull down the cache, log your visit and it goes up again by itself. I took out the whole thing :-/ Next challenge: Getting the cache back into it’s position.

I ended up climbing up the tree without my shoes… WHATEVER you don’t have not to climb!

The whole thing was so funny because today in the morning I was depressed because of the weather. Not again! We already had enough rain this week! I’m glad I did not stay at home and just grumble about it. Making the best out of a terrible situation was easier than I thought!
