4 Calgarians got together in Switzerland.
Meet-ups like this on the road are always fun.
Tam had come to Europe with her daughter who’s doing a semester in Spain.
Cal and Maria are starting their 3rd year living in small villages near Bern.
The first two years they lived in Solothurn, a lovely place popular with Swiss but almost unknown by foreign tourists. Population is about 17,000 with 20% of those being resident foreign nationals.
We enjoyed a terrific meal in Solothurn. It was Tam’s farewell. She flew home to Seattle same day.
I stayed the night with Cal and Maria, learning much about Switzerland. It’s a unique place which many other nations should study.
Cal showed me a fantastic book called Living and Working in Switzerland: A Survival Handbook by David Hampshire. It’s hilarious, must reading for anyone moving there to work.
