...sounds like a plan. Would you like to go to restaurant A or restaurant B? Oh wait, there is also a McDonalds.

Jokes aside, there are quite a few half decent options.

Say, does your husband like hockey by any chance?

Because we got an awesome, awesome (yes, spelled it twice on purpose) hockey team in Olten...with exciting games (and I only got into it because I was bored out of my mind). Soo, maybe we can meet up and head to a game one of these days.

Welcome to Olten. It is definitely the Paris of Switzerland.

There are a few of us around here.

We could all meet for lunch one day.


What do you all think?
Don't hate! I moved here this year from the real Paris and I have to say, I consider it a dramatic improvement!

The way I see it, you are trading disco music and dog crap for amazing public transportation, safety and a vastly more productive working environment. Olten isn't fancy, but it at least it's functional

I'd love to get together with some olten(ish) anglophones for lunch. I travel for work a good bit, but any time next week would be good for me if we can wrangle a posse.

..because we got an awesome team. Well, they're alright..but it's something to do and can be fun to watch. There is actually a game on Sunday if you're interested.

It's the jewel of the midwest.....the city that always sleeps, hmm, sometimes when I wake up and see all the city lights and the skyline, it reminds me of Hong Kong...that's when I figured, that I've been staring at my screensaver too long.

I posted an event for this coming Friday for the Thai restaurant
in Dulliken. The buffet is good, but you have to make a reservation.

Hey, I am looking for the same type of company and would love to have a company for a chat and a cup of coffee. The problem is, I live in near Wil, which is in St Gallen area. However, I am just starting to explore Switzerland and some day planning to visit Zurich. My name is Gulsina and me and my husband have moved from Ireland.
