Welcome to Bruno’s Point of View.

I am born and raised near Zürich, Switzerland and immigrated to  Canada in the seventies, first to Nelson BC, then to Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast. I am a frequent world traveler and published two books, Folly Bistro, about two turbulent years as a French restaurant owner, and Mariposa Intersections, a political romance story set in central Mexico.

Here I share my  travel impressions, my weekly conversations with Camp, a few short stories and poems as well as creative recipes. I welcome your comments.
