How to Practice Slow Living In July

In this post, we will look at how to practice slow living in July. Why? Because summer is about vacation, relaxing, and taking time for yourself and your family.

How to Do An Easter Egg Hunt in Versoix

This post is more for my Swiss readers that are based in the Geneva region. If you spend Easter at home and don’t know what to do, come with your children to Versoix between 31 March and 12 April 2021. An Association Le Rado-Versoix has organized an Easter egg hunt in Versoix.
