Au pair from UK living near Fribourg

Hey! I'm new to the forum, my names Roxanna!

I've just moved to Farvagny near Fribourg as an au pair and am working on my German and eventually will start with French!

If you're an au pair in the area I'd love to chat!

Stay groovy,

Sunny x

Welcome to Fribourg and the EF.

I think you'll find French a lot more helpful in Farvagny...

Hi Roxanna, welcome to the EF. I looked on the map, and you really are in the sticks aren't you?

Yep definitely, and I'll get there eventually but I am familiar with German so just starting with what I know! Only been here for two weeks!

Yeah, but its not too bad, the buses are regular and it only takes about 20 minutes to get into Fribourg centre! Best of both worlds!

Farvagny is in a nice area; right beneath the Gibloux and a spit from lac Gruyère. Enjoy your stay.

Re: Au pair from UK living near Fribourg

Welcome to Fribourg, best of luck with the languages, if you ever get bored and plan to go into Fribourg, drop me or PaddyG a PM, there are quite a few expats that regularly meet up for a drink and a chat.

Re: Au pair from UK living near Fribourg

Hi and welcome to the forums.

Lived in Farvagny myself for 6 months after moving from Ireland. Small village with really nothing to do unfortunately so was fairly happy when I left.

Tis a very quiet and peaceful spot though if that's your thing
