Weather has gone back to being decent here in Zürich, and without other plans for the weekend, I decided on biking around lake Zürich (or, most of it at least). All in all about 80 km, with absolutely great views during most of the tour – and passing through charming towns, wine-fields and quiet parks. I obviously brought my camera along, but “sadly” the sky was just boringly blue all across ;) Got a few shots of in spite of this though, although I spent most of my energy on enjoying the tour, the views and the weather.
As noted in the last post, I’ve just moved to Zürich to start a new job, and pretty much also a new life. Leaving Odense after almost 14 years wasn’t easy, but the last couple of months has had me enjoy as much of it as possible – and I also barely managed to squeeze in a trip to the very small island Drejø with my choir, the last weekend before leaving for Switzerland. A great trip, and some wonderful people – which I also got a couple of pictures of.
Being in Zürich for a week now, I’ve had time to look around already. Thursday was a public holiday, the weather was great, so I decided on heading up to one of the highest points around – the Uetliberg. A 4½ hour walk with almost 500m of height difference wasn’t the most relaxing way to spend the holiday, but the fantastic views and an altogether very nice hike, more than made up for it. And yes, obviously I brought my camera also ;)
This week I started a new job at Verity Studios – where I’m going to write software for flying machines used for live entertainment. A very exiting opportunity, which took some thought to get used to though, as it’s in Zürich – about 1200km from Odense, where I’ve spent most of the last 14 years. But – until now at least, everything is going well, although I of course miss a lot of the wonderful people back home. In any case though, my camera is probably going to like the new city with both hills, lake, rivers, old buildings, and alps in the background – but until I get around to getting some pictures up, have a video about what Verity Studios are doing:
