I've just applied for a flat (fingers crossed) and if it works out I'll be moving there some time in August.

I also wanted a furnished place!!! I'm currently in one and I love it... But they're so hard to come by... Do you want to live alone? Because otherwise, the easy option is to live in a flatshare, sometimes one of the flatmates moves out and leaves their furniture behind... Have you been looking into that? The "downside" is that they might be students since it's a big uni town (but you're also young so maybe you'd like that).

I need to live alone (I'm very strange ) so I didn't bother looking too hard for flatshares, but did come across some ads like that. Also, 1 room studios are sometimes furnished (but I find those quite depressing ). Lemme know if you want some links for flat hunting!
How did the flat hunting go Avita?

I'm pretty sure there are other Mancs on this forum. Maybe they will introduce themselves.

Really?!!
My nephew and niece go to Woodhey, and my hubby's son was there some years ago.
I'm a lot older than you, (had a nosey at your profile) but I may know some people you know!

Re: Manchester to Fribourg.....5 weeks and counting

Hi there,

I'll be moving to Fribourg at the end of August also for work. I'm from Lancashire, 27 year old male. I'll be working as an English language assistant. May I ask if you have found accomodation yet?

My budget is between anything upto about 1200 per month and I would consider a flatshare.

Hope your move is going well!

Paul

Heeeey another mancunian

Can't believe I'd even come across someone from up north )) So are you looking forward to your big move? It will be something very different from where we come from I think you will be very pleasantly suprised, first away fro the damp drizzle and fog hee hee Strange some coming from there and some homesick to go back! Well I wish you the best of luck in switzerland
