home sweet home: glimpse of lausanne

I just returned from a short business trip to Oslo, where I was greeted with snow and a wind that came directely from the North Pole! Glad to be back to sunny and almost spring-like Switzerland :)

Before this week is already over again, I just wanted to share the rest of the pictures I took in Lausanne last weekend! Strolling along the lake, climbing up to the old town with the prominent cathedral and dreaming about more macarons.

And don't ask me why I focused on the city of Montreux and not on Lausanne on the colourful map... My mind was already dealing with something else I guess :)

Copyright all on me.


  1. Kristina, these are so so beautiful!!
    And now after reading your email I'm in awe! I was sure you're a professional photographer...!
    Will write you tomorrow but in the meantime, please keep on taking photos!!!

  2. Lovely pictures Kristine - the 'Nana' photo looks a little like Norway with the simple colours and architecture and for a minute I got confused. I also really like the motion in the last picture, need to try this out sometime.

    Oh, and I think you are right - the trick to doing Faschings is to attend a local, smaller-town parade rather than a big event like in Cologne.

  3. Sehr schöne Fotos. Der Schriftzug Nana erinnert mich an ein Buch von Emile Zola. :)

    Eine schöne Restwoche!

  4. Nice pics, nice place! It must have been a nice day!

  5. These photos are fantastic! You're an amazing photographer, Kristina! I definitely need to get myself over to Lausanne soon!

  6. I love your photos, they're gorgeous! It was so fun to read that you just visited Oslo because I am Norwegian and I used to live in Oslo (although that's many years ago now). Hope you had a great time =)

  7. beautiful!!! I might be going there tomorrow if I feel better!!! This got me more excited :)
