Just landed in Zurich!

Hi there ! I am an Irish student (just graduated) starting life as an au pair in Zurich. Only arrived here on Monday! Everything seems to be going great so far but I would really love to meet more people. Unfortunately my German is pretty much non-existent although I will be starting classes next week so.. anyways, anyone who is new to Zurich too or who just fancies to meet up for coffee or whatever, let me know

Look forward to hearing from you guys!
Lorna

Re: Just landed in Zurich!

Hi Lorna,

I know... I was just testing you haha!
Seriously though.. I could have sworn she was Irish.. Oh well what do I know.. I don't understand both the Irish and Scottish when they speak it just sounds pretty.
