Things to do in Basel, Summertime

Summertime drinks on the terrace

Basel summertime bring the chance to have afterwork drinks, to enjoy the last rays of sunshine before sunset or at the weekend, spending time lounging on one of Basel’s terraces or enjoyed at one of the many pop-up buvettes.

My four favourite buvettes – the best way to enjoy views of the Rhine

When’s warm enough to eat out side then it’s time to enjoy, warm evenings or sunny afternoons at Basel’s numerous buvettes that are spread out along the Rhine. A buvette is a popup, seasonal bar that serves apero nibbles, sandwiches and other fast foods along with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.  Perfect for lazy summer afternoons watching the world go by, watching the sunset over the Rhine, resting after a Rhine swim or just hanging out with family and friends.

Foraging for elderflower to make a summery cordial

It was a warm sunny day today so, I headed to Niederbipp in Canton Solothurn, a region I used to live in. I wanted to go foraging in the woods with the hope that I could also pick some Elderflower. Why? These beautiful delicate flowers are packed with fragrant yellow pollen that makes the most delicious summer cordial.

How to prioritise your own health and well-being

Most of us spend our days focusing on accomplishing goals for others – at work and at home. We work to progress our careers, perhaps with the goal of better pay and security for our family as well as to fulfill our vision and purpose. We work to keep our family healthy and happy because we love them and want the best for them.

A guide to making great food choices

What we eat is the single biggest determinant of our health – short term and long term. It is also deeply personal, connected with culture, emotions and preferences. We all yearn after family favourites, treats from our childhood or national favourites such as fish and chips or mac and cheese.  Often, what we like to eat or are used to eating, is not always what is best for our health. Are you like many people, confused by the enormous amount of information about different diets that are often contradictory.  All the more reason to ignore the so-called experts and eat what you want, right? Life is short after all and food is a pleasure in life!
