I just got an SBB GA for the month - anyone want to meet up somewhere?

Hi all -

I decided to bite the bullet and get a GA for the month so I can explore Switzerland while I have some time. If anyone is interested in meeting up somewhere, or has wanted to check out a new place and wants an adventure buddy who speaks English and almost nothing else, hit me up! If you're lonely in whatever remote (and hopefully adorable) place you live and just want a coffee date with an American/Bostonian (who can also hang with British humor and loves Aussies), I'm good with that too. I love the little things as well as the spectacular ones, and would love for folks to show me what is special about their towns. Hopefully I can offer you enjoyable company in return

I'm based in Aarau, so pretty much anywhere is relatively easy for me to get to by train, and my schedule is pretty open the next two weeks so feel free to hit me up!

If you plan to come to Bern I'd be happy to meet up with you.

Not sure how interested or keen you are but there is an expat meetup in Winterthur this Friday from 6 onwards. Interesting crowd and generally well attended.

I'd be happy to come to Bern! I've only been there once several years ago for a day (when the bear pit was empty and you could go inside it!). Perhaps sometime next week?

Thanks for the link on the Winterthur meetup - I'll have to see if my BF is working Friday evening and if he already made plans for us

Well if you got a GA for a month and have the time then you should really head out for the mountains as the weather is great just now!

My daughter and I are just back from a little trip: To Tirano on the Bernina Express route (stayed over), then to Disentis on the Glacier Express route (stayed over) and then today to Zermatt and home.

I'll be moving to Winterthur from the US (San Diego, previously Boston) in early November. Would love to meet up some time!

If you think you'll still be up for some company and SBB exploration come next month, let me know.

Can you get there by train? The maps aren't pulling up anything good for me on Livigno...

I might just miss you! I have to leave the schengen zone on Nov 6th (doesn't look like I'm getting married this year ) - so if you get here before then let me know! I'm also a Bostonian who lived in SD for 7 years

OP and I are going to meet for a late lunch in Bern on Wednesday. Anyone else care to join us? I'm entertaining and all that, but it would be nice if OP could meet a few other Forum members as well. PM me if you think you can make it.

You too!

I wish I didn't already have plans tomorrow... Geneva is definitely on my list of places to visit in the next week! If my plans end early enough maybe I'll make it for drinks in Geneva - why not??!

Hey,

I'm based in Lausanne and on sick leave (broken shoulder) for the next 10 days. If you're passing by and want to meet for a coffee / lunch / drink, tell me :-)

Ciao,
nio

I saw it too late too sad because it’s school hols and I could have made it... admittedly with three kids in tow, but hey, nobody’s perfect

Sorry to hear about your shoulder, and happy to hear it means you have time for visiting (which also hopefully means it's not bothering you too much!). Geneva is on my list, and Lousanne can easily be on the way so I'd be happy to stop in on my way there or back for a visit. I'll send you a message

Hey!

Sorry for the late reply. We just arrived in CH this week, Wednesday to be exact.

Funny that we've spent time living in all the same places!

We're staying in Bütschwil right now with family, but will be moving to Winti next month.

Have you already left? If not, I will be hanging out in Zürich tomorrow. Perhaps, we can meet up for a bit.

Alternatively, we can just plan something for when you return. ;-)

You and 3 kids - perfect. If we happen to synchronize hols, we can meet. Maybe we can have a theme meet up, maybe to just welcome a new comer here, why not.

Looks like we'll have to plan something for when I return in the Spring! Welcome to Switzerland - hope you enjoy settling in and I look forward to meeting you when I'm back in Europe. Also, if you find yourself in Boston before then hit me up for a drink!
