Any welsh people in Zurich, Zug, Lucerne...

This is a plea for any Welsh people out there! Really missing the welshness of people and would be great to find some fellow welshies for a drink (ok, if you are welsh you know it wont be "a" drink!)

Been here almost a year and need some banter

Siarad cymraeg hefyd x

No, I am English but I lived a long time in Wales & often heard this expression.

I assume it means "Cheers Englishman" or something similar!!

Plenty of Welsh folk seem to appear when they are giving the English a good hiding at Rugby in Mr P, Zug.

Re: Any welsh people in Zurich, Zug, Lucerne...

Helo Sian Elin!

Dwi'n byw yn Zug ers dros dwy flynedd erbyn hyn, a ti yw'r Gymraes cyntaf i mi ddod ar ei thraws yma! Sai'n cael lot o gyfle i siarad Cymraeg, er fod fy ngwr wedi dechrau dysgu, mae'n anodd siarad yma gan ei fod yn haws siarad Saesneg neu Almaeneg. Fi'n dod o Sir Gaerfyrddin, o le wyt ti'n dod? Nid fod hynny'n gwneud unrhyw wahaniaeth, ond fel tueddiad y Cymru, rhaid gweithio allan os ydym yn perthyn neu'n nabod rhywyn sy'n nabod rhywun...;-)

Rhan fwyaf o'r amser dwi yn Bern yn ystod yr wythnos, ac adre yn Zug dros y penwythnos, ond dwi yn Zug fory (dydd Gwener) yn ogystal a penwythnos hyn.

Cysyllta 'da fi os wyt ti eisiau cwrdd lan rhywbryd.

Re: Any welsh people in Zurich, Zug, Lucerne...

I move over after Christmas to Luzern and really could do with a welsh crowd for the 6 Nations!! - Or organise a cheeky trip back to the diff for Wales v England!!

I'm originally from Llandyssil in Mid-Wales, but it would be really good to catch up with you all when I move out to Switzerland!

Tom

Re: Any welsh people in Zurich, Zug, Lucerne...

Hiya Sian,

Well, the rugby kicks off next weekend, so I think that's a good excuse for a drink and some welshness!!

A dwin siarad cymraeg hefyd, dydi o ddim yn hawdd i ddarganfod pobol yn y swisdir sydd yn :-) Os ti am wylio'r gem, dwin byw yn Zuri, a maen siwr a i ir tafarn.

Hwyl am rwan,
Osh
