Hello from Colorado!

Hi ya! My name is Angel and I moved to Switzerland, Fribourg region, from Colorado. So happy to have found this forum! I'm officially sick of being a haus frau and am ready to jump back into the working world of Logistics. If any of you English peeps would like to meet up in Fribourg-ish areas to practice German speaking then please let me know!

Re: Hello from Colorado!

Hi Angel and welcome to Fribourg. There are quite a few English ex-pats in and around the city.

It's a long way from Colorado, but I guess the mountains help you feel at home somewhat. I'm Okie born myself, although my parents were British.

Re: Hello from Colorado!

Welcome to Switzerland. Our friends in Virginia fell in love with the mountains here- so moved to Colorado. Where in CO are you from? It's weird just how similar and yet so different, the Alps are from CO, wildlife, flowers, etc. Been there both in Winter for skiing and Summer for hiking and loved it - hope you enjoy it here.

Thank you! It's been really fun living in Canton Fribourg. The mountains definitly make me feel more at home.

Re: Hello from Colorado!

Thanks a bunch for the warm forum welcome everyone! Although Colorado definitly had it outdoorsy perks, so does Fribourg. My husband and I are "hike-a-holics" and this is the perfect region for it!

Hello angeleck2000. I am also from Colorado, I moved from Broomfield two months ago. You will definitely enjoy Switzerland. It will be a little different, you can't just run to Walmart at anytime . If you have any questions PM me.

Re: Hello from Colorado!

I had to join in noticing the few responses from Colorado folks. We are also from Golden! Welcome to Switzerland! If you are in the Zurich area, send us a message. It would be fun to meet up.
