No i just live here, i work in Zug. Well you see I didn´t have a choice, in Olten I have a friend, and he is the only person in know here, so i´m staying at his place for a while. Later, when I will be able to have my own apartment, maybe i´ll choose another place but now it´s not a problem for me, it takes only 30min to come to Zurich, Luzern or Basel
but i thought that you work in Luzern, not in Olten

Re: New in Olten

Hi! I am in Solothurn (city) and am always looking to meet up with new people in the area.....english speakers seem to be quite few and far between in this area. I'm 25 year old nanny from the uk. I have never properly actually been to Olten....passed through it many times on the train, but never explored it properly! Hope you're enjoying olten!

Hi, nice to meet you
Well, i´m enjoying here, but for me it´s too boring, though i have to admit that i still like this small town and how long have you been living in Switzerland?

Hihi,

I'm new too, just moved here yesterday from Paris for work. Maybe we can get an anglophone meetup of sorts sometime in the near future.

Cheers,
