another bored and lonely person

Hello,
I recently joined EF, hoping to meet some new people.
I have been here for about a year now, but almost all of my friends lives in other parts of switzerland.
Now i am bored of hanging around alone!
I am 23 years old from Sweden and i work as a pastry chef in Zurich,
but live Wil SG.
So please give me a shout if someone is up for a drink or something.

Re: another bored and lonely person

Well ,working long hours in the kitchen and commute daily to zurich, do you really have to time to be bored ?
Have worked in a big hotel in zurich and worked for 13.5 hours every inventory(end of the month).
Now I am working at the universal hospital in bale(basel),the working hours are much better compared to the hotel.

Do you have any hobbies or interests ?

Re: another bored and lonely person

yeah i know what you mean, had that kind of work Before. But now i am lucky to work in a production kitchen so it is basically office hours now.
I like to walk alot, explore new things, climbing, swimming but also just to sit at a cafe or a bar and hang. I think most things are cool when you are in a good company.

Good luck with your work, hope you make your way(sometimes the turnover in the kitchen of a hotel can be scaring).
Don't have much time to travel around here in switzerland, it is not easy to meet people outside the workplace.

Thats one reason I am visiting concerts.....

Re: another bored and lonely person

There's English language comedy every two weeks on a Friday in Zurich right by a station, so getting home isn't too tricky. Loads of people from around the world attend and it's a good place to get chatting.

See the below thread for tonight, for example:

International Comedy Club Zurich - Craig Campbell (Can)

Pop by our showroom in Zurich if you're looking for cake decorating supplies. See my signature below. We have a selection of our online business range and a constant flow of both professional and amateur cake decorating artists all day. Introduce yourself and have a coffee; always nice to meet new faces on the baking scene.

Hi hanson


did you see this? A teacher looking for people to talk to her students.
Talk to Swiss students and share your experience being an expat in Switzerland
I could imagine those students and your mom could have a great time talking, at this specific event or at other times.

I'd say, go to EF member GrumpyGrapefruit's beer bar and see who you meet. Many EFers go there, you're bound to bump into someone!
