Re: Kiwi in Lugano

Hey there!
I'm a kiwi too, and I was in and around Locarno in July last year (didn't make it over to Lugano), but it's a beautiful place in the summer and I hope you enjoy your time there, you're very lucky!

If you are across the lake from Locarno, you are nowhere near Lugano!

(which is on a totally separate lake, with a lot of mountains in between)

Re: Kiwi in Lugano

It would appear she is in the district of Locarno instead.

Vira Gambarogno seems to be a nice little place though.

Re: Kiwi in Lugano

Hi All
It sound like the Kiwi's are going to over run the place, they took over Australia and now they have there sights set on Switzerland.

Ok just joking welcome to Switzerland you people from down under.
At this rate we cound start a cricket match NZ verses AUS

One day we might catch up and have a beer or two.

Not sure about Switzerland, but half my family now lives in Australia, so I wouldn't count it out as a future option. I can't really go into detail of our slow-pace friendly world domination plans, but there will be plenty of relaxation, sports and alcohol, so no need to worry.

Welcome to Ticino,

Lugano is the nearest town for Socialising, nothing really ever happens in Locarno or Bellinzona. It would be more fun to visit Lugano maybe for the Internations event, if you dont have a car, you could catch the bus to Giubiasco then the train to Lugano.

Feel free to pm any questions,

Hey guys thanks heaps. Ive been in basel for a few days, it's quite nice.
I just put lugano because i realised my area is very small and Lugano is bigger and easier to find english speaking peeps. Its not to far to drive so it wouldnt be to much of a worry. I think switzerland is a better choice then ozzy to take over . Ooo also the international film fest is in locarno in august. Definitly message me if any of you come down my way.
