New in Switzerland, hope to meet some people from Zurich area

Hello everybody!

I have moved to Switzerland about a month ago. I live in Winterthur sorroudnings (village called Hettlingen ).

After finnishing University in Poland (art history) I didn't feel like starting a professional job yet so I came here for one year to work as an au pair, have some fun, travelling and meet new people. I hope to make some friedns soon, cause as far now I didn't meet to many people. It's not so easy when you live in a village and don't speek german to well. But to Winterthur and Zurich I have very close, so if enybody from this area is fancy to go for a drink, cofee, sightseeing, party or whatever just let me know. I have 3 days per week free from work so quite a lot of time for social life. From time to time I like to go to some blues, rock and reggae concerts and also to latin prties to dance. Anybody know some nice places for that?

I would be also glad to meet some mums or other au pairs, so we could go together with children to a playground, zoo or something like that. I'm taking care of 1,5 year old boy and 3 years old girl. We spend a lot of time in playground in Winterthur's park but we're also planning to make some excursions to Zurich.

Greetings,
Ula

Hi Ula and welcome to the Forum.. I studied Fine Art painting and Art history too though would love more time to go back to Art History (maybe soon when the kiddies are a bit older) I hope you have met some more people by now in Winterthur? Continue to post here and keep an eye on the Calendar as you might find someone working close by.

Any art exhibitions coming up you fancy, send me a PM - if I can, I'd love to join you for an art chat and coffee.

Hi Ula and welcome here! Good luck with your search, I am sure you will bump into somebody soon..Too bad we are out of reach, little too far to hang together.

Enjoy the forum and ask around in your village for a local playgroup, or the folks you are working for might be able to help you with asking..

Re: New in Switzerland, hope to meet some people from Zurich area

Hey, Ula,

i am new to Zurich too and knowing nothing of this city.
I am a Chinese from Beijing, China, who came here a week ago for viting my older sister and her hubby for at least three months. Before coming to here, i was engaged in IPO in China.
I enjoy many things, such as sports, music, travellings, meeting new friends of locals and foreigners.
As i am here visiting, i have plenty of time while my sister and her hubby have to work that i have nothing to do and i know nothing here.
Hereby, if you know any interesting activies such as travelling, concert, drinks or cooking (i love it), you may share with me. I would like to spend my time here with fantastic ways.
Going to zoo with children are nice har~ ^_^ i love children very much.
ok, have a nice day!
Regards,
Frank Xia

Hi Ula,

Welcome to Switzerland and the Forum!

There are some great rock concerts from time to time in the Zurich area. I try to use those to keep me busy :P

Enjoy!
