Canadian coming for a visit

Hello, swiss

My name is Joey, I'm a North America Indian (Aborginal person) from Canada. I'II be traveling to Zurich end of the month. I writing hoping to get some information about pre-paid cell phones. I would like to keep in contact with my family while in Switzerland. I'II be biking from Zurich to Rome and need some information about getting a pre-paid cell phone providing Switzerland has them (I would think so). Any information about cost, where to purchase them and anything else would be great!. Can't wait to see your country..

Joey
Thank you

Sometimes, it is the best way to travel. When touring by bicycle especially, it can be difficult finding company that matches the same speed, same interests, etc.

So, is it a motorbike, or a bicycle?

I'm traveling by bicycle. What made me do this? Been off work for a 12 months and I like an adventure or two. Plus it's a mile stone for my fitness. Set a goal last year to get fit and go on a biking trip somewhere, Why? lol 12 months ago my heart was so weal i was in a wheel chair for 3 weeks then slowy I started walking then jogging then biking so it's something i want to do..

Re: Canadian coming for a visit

When I first moved here I got a temporary card with Lebara mobile. I found their long distance rates reasonable. Then I'd use Skype when possible, but I don't think you'll be able to Skype with a bike...

Re: Canadian coming for a visit

If things haven't changed in the last 18 months then you can get a pre-pay sim with your passport without a permit.

Have fun
