It was fun, +Elisabeth Rippstein. We saw a few shooting stars while hanging out at our beachfront campfire. I wasn't able to capture those images on camera, so I opted for sharing the Auto Awesome animation from my campfire shots :-)

I don't post publicly much, but I'm making an exception as I'm proud of what my wife, +Carla Rippstein, is doing today...she's going out of her comfort zone to give a talk at The Powerhouse event tonight in Zurich!

The topic she was asked to speak about focuses on 'reinventing yourself in Switzerland'. From the pieces she's shared with me, her talk is a mix of personal and professional info from the past, present and future...with some motivational thoughts mixed in for those looking for it  

The other two talks tonight sound interesting too...definitely a good event to attend and a great group to get involved with (assuming you live near Zurich).

Tonight's event is sold out, but here's where you can find more info:

Hopefully a recorded version of her talk will be made available for those who couldn't attend in person. I will let you know if this happens (likely to be hosted on her website at

Had a great lunch here today. The lunch menu was limited but still had something for everyone. The food was fresh and perfectly seasoned. The ambiance and furniture are nice...a perfect match for the local hillside area. The service was friendly and professional. I look forward to another visit soon, especially to try their evening and brunch menus.

Diverse menu of tasty Swiss-Italian food in a good atmosphere for both couples and families. The staff are friendly and helpful while also being attentive and thoughtful of children. I've eaten here several times over the years and have consistently had good food and service. I highly recommend this restaurant to friends.
