Ok. Changes and new challenges. Smart people say we need them. So I try to convince myself that we really do πŸ˜€ Can you imagine how feels the person who lived in the same city, in the comfort zone almost 30 years and now has to change everything? Oh believe me, very strange πŸ™‚ Yeah, I am talking about myself.
New country, new city, language that I don’t understand at all except bonjour and merci πŸ˜€ No family, no friends, no acquaintances in every step. No known places, no idea where to find the best gym, market, coffee place, most delicious dessert or tuna tartare πŸ™‚ Where to run in the morning or to take a walk in the evening πŸ™‚ Have to find everything now. I can’t say it is bad. But different and strange for sure. And interesting at the same time. Exploring is always good. However, I always traveled a lot and imagine that exploring process when you travel is not so different comparing with that one when you move. So I can say now – I was very naive and there’s nothing in common πŸ™‚
So my first impressions about Switzerland? Millions of paperwork, in every step. Papers papers papers. Seems to me that the post box is the most important thing at home. I was asked in every institution if there is my name on it already. Hm, what about saving trees? πŸ™‚ I was used to do almost everything online. Here it’s completely different πŸ™‚ Prices? It costs to live there πŸ™‚ People? Will be able to say more later, but nice. I guess will be even nicer when I can say few words in french (more that those bonjour and merci). What else? Lausanne is great city, beautiful place to live. Amazing views, many places to go out. Already found where to have a morning run, drink good coffee and have a glass of wine πŸ™‚ I promise that my next step is gym and karate dojo πŸ™‚ There are some other things in the waiting list too πŸ™‚ So.. let’s enjoy every experience we have in our life πŸ™‚
