Turn out the light...

…the party is over. But is it really over, or is the party just starting again in a different location?

I would like to say a big THANK YOU to all of you, for the advice, for listening to my online and offline rants, for the good times together at the German Conversation Group, the absinthe & comedy nights, the A-Z dinners, the “A taste of…” Friday lunches, the Zurich Book Club, Swisspea’s world food tours, the Thursday drinks at the Viadukt, the karaoke, the Sunday Roast at Potbelly, the Pool Nights, the International Comedy Club on Friday at Mascotte, the Xenix movies - sometimes preceded by an unplanned dinner at Hooter’s, right Prof. T? – and many more happy occasions.

I’ve met great friends here, on and offline, but I am not really saying goodbye – just changing my address. After all, I still have tickets to attend the Eddie Izzard gig at the Hallenstadion in Zurich in April 2013, so I’ll be back

As I begin the countdown and enjoy my last two weeks in the country, I wish all of you - newbies, oldies, and people considering moving here - my best. Enjoy each others’ company in this beautiful and challenging country. Hope to catch you soon, online and most of all offline – there are still quite a few events to attend before leaving

Tschuss!

I hoped until the last minute to be able to make it there, as it is the one missing bit of Switzerland that I have not been able to go to...well, as I said, I'll be back! Aside from Eddie Izzard, I am also leaving a very big piece of my heart here in CH, hopefully only temporarily.

So...

Re: Turn out the light...

I'm happy that you get the opportunity (though slightly envious) to embark on a new journey. I'm sure wherever you go, you will be alright...you're just one of those people.
I wish you all the best and don't forget about us.

Re: Turn out the light...

Zurich won't be the same without you! It was thanks to you that I attended my first A-Z of dining as well as the book club and met many great people and had a lot of fun.

I'l see you before you go, but anyway I wish you the very best of luck and happiness in your new life!

Tim

All the best with your new adventure...I can only hope that in a couple of years time I can write a message like yours that is full of positive comments and 'love' for Switz. It sounds like you've had an amazing time...I'm still trying to find my feet here.

Have a good journey and don't be a stranger. If you need an upgrade of your neck warming gear, lemi know, still got a lot of left over yarn.

Have a good time in the land of fun
