• Romanian tunes

    Some of you know that we don’t have the urge of geting in touch with the romanian community in Switzerland, mainly because of the reasons that made us leave Romania. But there are values that make me proud of being romanian and music is one. In addition to the CDs that we buy, we attend […]

  • Tageskarte Gemeinde

    We have visitors from Romania coming to us at the end of this month. They will stay at our place and in some of the days they will discover Switzerland by travelling here and there . However, for a normal tourist, without any travel pass or reduction, the public transport tickets can become very expensive. […]

  • Yet another chapter closed

    We handover-ed our old flat in Oerlikon to the landlord. I have to admit that I was a bit stressed, the reason was the cleaning, that we did in the last minute. Why so late ? Because we didn’t know from our landlord the exact day for handover and we couldn’t reach the new tenant, […]
