Pumpkin shopping at Juckerfarm, Switzerland

Fall fun & Halloween pumpkins at Juckerfarm

I love fall, pumpkins, and Halloween, and no matter where in the world I live, I try my best to celebrate October in full color and costume. So you can imagine how excited I was to find that there is a sprawling farm overlooking Pfäffikersee, that is filled with thousands of pumpkins of various shapes and forms, and you can get there with a direct 30 min train from Zürich 🙂 

Purple blooming wisteria in a Zurich park

Spring in Zürich part II

I purposely added two types of photos to this post: bright and sunny snapshots of an afternoon in wisteria-covered Belvoirpark, and moody green on gray pictures of rainy streets in Kreis 3. It’s a contrast that wasn’t there when I wrote my previous post, but now a month and a half later, I think it’s time to give a proper spring update. If someone asks me, “So how is spring in Zürich?” I will now refer them to this side by side comparison of March and April 😀

Rooftop pool view from Thermal Bad and Spa in Zurich

Afternoon at a rooftop spa with views of the city

I’ve decided to start a “Zürich places” list. On Instagram I often get questions about what to do in the city. The truth is, I wish I knew more! Between courses, homework, and applications, most of my discovering has been limited to walking – but I’ve managed to explore a few cool spots and I want to share them 🙂 Last weekend we went to the Thermalbad & Spa Zürich.
