Edible souvenirs are the best, so before I left Zurich, I made sure to stock up on delicious Swiss chocolate. My new favorite are the champagne truffles from Sprüngli, made fresh every day with real champagne. It was love at first bite!
Master’s Home is a gorgeous Italian restaurant with a fun concept. The restaurant is located in a cozy old building in the Old Town, and the cozy interior makes you feel like you’re stepping inside somebody’s homa, a feeling that was further emphasized by the friendly and warmhearted staff greeting us.
Saturday morning, I went for a museum in Munich, but before I was ready for art, I needed food. The first stop I made was therefore at the Architecture Department at the Technical University of Munich. They have the most amazing rooftop spot, Café Vorhoelzer, with a really nice view of the city, and for 12.5EUR you’ll get a fully loaded brunch platter with different kinds of cold cuts, salmon and cheese, of course served with plenty of bread rolls and German rye bread on the side. I also had iced coffee, but it was rather horrible, so let’s just pretend it never happened.
From the rooftop bar at Mandarin Oriental, we could see the garden at Hofbräuhaus. It looked so cozy, so even though our plans for the rest of the evening didn’t originally include beer, we quickly changed our minds and decided to go and check it out.
We didn’t make it to Mandarin Oriental until 9:45pm, and the sweet guy in the door informed us that the rooftop bar would be closing at 10pm. Though we decided to head up there anyway, and at least enjoy the view of the city. Did I say sweet? Hanna definitely agreed with me, and we were giggling like teenagers all the way up in the elevator.
Tina lives in Brooklyn, and after she has become a mom, I find it increasingly difficult to make her venture outside her natural habitat. If I want to see her, I’ll have to go to Brooklyn. Not that I mind, because Brooklyn has so many nice neighborhoods, and the dining scene is fabulous.

I’ve had a LinkedIn profile for several years, but I don’t really use it and I haven’t updated my profile for ages. When I recently logged in to give my profile a full makeover, I was therefore surprised to see what LinkedIn has turned into today.
Hanna is trying to eat as vegan as possible, so to make it a little easier for her, I suggested that we went for dinner at the vegetarian restaurant Prinz Myshkin. To put it simple, vegetarians don’t eat dead animals, and vegans don’t eat neither dead animals nor any products derived from animals either, including eggs, cream and cheese.
