I'll be away from that - to Ludwig's Castle and the Mary Bridge.

They're everywhere.

Being a housewife, I am sure I will be working... no such thing as a day off, holiday or not.

Re: Auffahrt ( Ascension Day ) Thu 02.06 - will you be working ?

I have a few days off next week and am at a loss as what to do over this time.
I am single and don't want to stay in my flat - boring!!
Many things are already booked up of course, so I am a bit last minute.

Any suggestions please (serious!) - city visits, welllness - all ideas welcome.

Will be spending the day at the Bmx club watching my son peddle around and doing jumps like a crazy little guy and having a laugh with my good friends.

Oh! That reminds me... those new to Basel may wish to take note of this holiday as I believe the stores are closed. (Such holidays frequently caught me by surprise unless my m-i-l warned me the day before.)

I'll be marking over hundred essays on my balcony... does that count?
I know what it feels like. Sounds good though, just open a bottle of wine, light up a cigar, and yodel loudly, makes it more fun.
