How to find an apartment in Basel… in 2 easy steps!

You really though 2 steps were enough?! Ok, that wasn’t funny… Everyone who had to do this job knows how painful it can be. There aren’t that many available flats in Swiss cities. The Swiss federal administration reported around 0.5% of free vacant houses in Basel (June 2014). I found a number for Amsterdam: over 3%! I do not know if they count exactly the same way, but it gives you an idea.

I was looking for an apartment in Switzerland and I wanted to share the tips I found. Of course, if you have ideas, you are also very welcome to share them. We visited 35 apartments until we found the right one.

Opinions: This sucks !

While playing with Illustrator I started this little serie. This idea is some things can be great or really suck depending on where you stand. Vegetarians really do suck if you are a vegetable. Ever thought of being chopped into cubes or being thrown into a blender? Yes, it really sucks!

Please add your suggestions in the comments.

mikro defio : get (mikro) challenged, daily

I had this little side-project on my bucket list for quite some while already. As far as I remember the first time this idea popped up was on a beach in the south of Sri Lanka. In 2012… But I never took the time to build it.

Tadam! Here is mikro defio.

A site that will (mikro) challenge you every single day of the year, of your life, of the universe. Each morning at 8am, a new challenge is shared. Now it is up to you to decide if you accept it or not.

Get (mikro) challenged now !

Note: the whole thing is still in work-in-progress. Please send me all your suggestions. They are very welcome.

Amsterdam Light Festival 2015

Doei Doei Amsterdam!

After almost 2 years living and working in Amsterdam it is now time for a change. As of July we (I & the Girl) will move to Basel in Switzerland. Exchanging Pannekoeken for Basler Lakerli, Dutch for SwitzerDutch (sounds almost the same) and Kings Days for Carnaval.

For those who don’t know Basel: This city is the paradise of Pharma Industry (!), dry sweets (!!) and Vitra chairs (!!!). Don’t worry, from July on I will share pictures.

If you have any contacts in Basel: they are more than welcome. For us is Basel almost like a new country.

PS: “Doei doei” means “Bye Bye”
