Happy Schlaeppi's are Veronika and Philipp Schläppi, we're both in our
thirties these days. As you can find below, even we started out as cute little
Rug Rats (Brei Marder)
|Hi I'm Veronika,
I'm the one on the left, even then a tigress of sorts (miauuu). The picture was
taken at the age of about 18 months on the steps of our home in Steffisburg
near Thun. I'm the youngest of a bunch of 5. Here shown with my Sister Barbara.
||A few years later,
approximately now, the youngest is now the tallest in my family. My hubby
always claims that I got a Bird,,just looks like it, doesn't it. I went through
all the regular schools, an apprentiship in fashion sales, a commercial school
and finally became a software developer. Over the last few years I worked as a
programmer for an insurance company.
|What are my interests in my spare time:
- I'm a cat lover. I admire their
movements, their elegance and their way of showing their affection.
- I love to spend my time admiring and
tending flowers, bushes and lttle trees on "Balconia".
- As another favourite pass time I like
to craft soft toy animals, puppets and similar things. Additionally I like to
work with wood.
- Together with my friends and
colleagues I love to play board games, card games and puzzles. Although just a
simple chat and a drink will be fine too.
- Another passion I share with my
husband, is the outdoors and travelling.
|Yes it's true,
it's me, Philipp at the age of 3 years. The picture was taken near my
birthplace in Guttannen, in the Bernese Oberland. Im pictured with one of the
local residents, no it's not a "Gemse" it's just a cute ("smelly") little goat.
Maybe it even provided me with some milk. Uuuh i better don't want to
||Yes it's me again. By now a
few years older. In the meantime I went to school, did an apprentiship as FEAM,
finished my electronics engineering studies and topped these of with a business
To date I'm working in the telecommunications Industry as a
system engineer for data and voice networks.
||What are my interests in my spare
- I love to sit together with my friends for a
barbecue over a good bottle of wine (preferably australian) and chat about God
and the world.
- I love to play board games, card games,
nasty games, all sorts of games, as I said, just games.
- Another passion is the outdoors and
travelling. Our currently preferred destination is Australia. If you want to
see and know more about it, check the Australia
1999 and the
2001 Links of our homepage
- Through my Job, i'm very much interested
into all sorts of technological gadgets and therefore I as well spend quiet
some time in front of my notebook.
- When I finally find some time to sit down
and relax, then I will listen to mainly to Rock and Pop music. Which I collect
since my childhood.
- Another part of my spare time goes towards
Retina Suisse. Retina Suisse is a
charitable organisation that supports people suffering from retinal
dystrophies. Additional interesting links about this topic can be found on our
