Finnish guy moving to Bern!

Hello everybody!


This is my first post and I want to thank this forum, it has been very helpful!

The last two years I have been working in Riga, Latvia and in the end of last year got this job offer from Bern. The employment contract has been signed now and next week I will be moving from Riga to Bern so this may be good time to start telling something of myself

I turned 28 while ago and in the past have been living in Finland, Latvia and Czech Republic (work and study). I donít speak German but would be willing to learn. Iím into different kind of outdoor activities and sports (snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, fly fishing etc.) and I think in Switzerland I can do all of them all-year round. My other interests involves meeting new people, good parties beer and booze

I donít know any places or people around (I heard thereīs a Finnish bear named "Finn" in the bear park ) but Iīm sure this forum is a great help and allows me to meet also new people!

Cheers!
Mikko

Tervetuloa Berniin!!! Welcome in Bern!

I'll guess the Bernese Oberland will provide an interesting base for your outdoor activities, and in Berne we have a great ice-hockey team www.scb.ch with Finnish trainer and Fitness-trainer.

Nice to have some more Suomalainen in Berne, enjoy

Kiitos FMX!

I was playing ice-hockey myself for 9 years back in the days but nowadays more like watching it. I would love to go and check some games in Bern also.. Have to check their website out! Thanks for the heads-up!

Welcome to Bern (I guess you might be here by now)!
There is a small group of twenty-somethings who meet regularly. It's Fastnacht in Bern this week, so be prepared to see costumes and hear drunken music! Send me a PM once you're settled if you want to join us for a drink etc.
