Hi everyone!

My name is Dan originally from kent, england. ive been travelling since 4 years now, and im in the countryside of SW bern (schwarzenburg) in a beautiful quiet place. Ill stay until the snow comes, then go somewhere else warm chasing the sun. Im mainly looking for people who are near to me to hang out with and have fun with. i live in a cool but very quiet and relaxed WG with 7 others and 7 dogs

Re: Hi everyone!

I'd love to know how you travel for 4 years… sounds awesome! Do you work?

Just be careful, technically you can only stay here 3 months as a tourist… realistically, they'd probably never find out!

Sure about that? Considering all the nosy neighbors I've had over the years, I would say be careful. But, I'm sure he has a valid permit

Very cool. You're fortunate to be able to do that.

I hope you have a great time here in Switzerland!

Re: Hi everyone!

Unfortunately, here you need a permit to make music on the streets. Musicians, exotic dancers, circus performers, etc, are regulated so just strumming around on the roadside is working illegally as far as I know.
