Constance

Fasnacht hit the Basel region this weekend and therefore it was a good reason to leave it! So for 36 hours we had a weekend away at Konstanz on the Bodensee, visiting the Sea Life centre and Insel Mainau. Next time we’ll have to stay a bit longer, and when it’s a but warmer!

Papilorama

After a few weeks of snow, we elected to visit Papilorama, a tropical butterfly zoo located just outside Bern. The girls had fun playing with the butterflies and the bats in the noctural area. Well worth a visit on a lazy weekend. www.papilorama.ch

Visit the gallery here.

Snow

Recent snow meant that I could send the drone up for a test flight in the local area. I was quite impressed with the results, though obviously I need a lot more practice! More photos here: LINK

Budapest

Summer vacation in Budapest. Third time I’ve been here but the first not for the Formula 1. Budapest is a lovely city and no doubt I’ll be back again for the Grand Prix in the future, though for this weekend I’ll have to make do with the Red Bull air race (pending the weather. It’s raining hard here this weekend!)
