Year Abroad: Schaffhausen - I Am a Polar Bear

I’d wanted to go to Schaffhausen and visit the Rhinefalls for some time – I’d just been waiting for a good day for it and this day was apparently the one.

Year Abroad: Neuchatel - I Am a Polar Bear

Once upon a time I mentioned that I used to live in Switzerland and today, finally, I’m going to tell you about Neuchâtel, which is where I used to live. Neuchâtel is in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, up in the north west, an hour or so north of Geneva. They’re very proud of themselves for… More Year Abroad: Neuchatel

Year Abroad: Château-d'Œx Balloon Festival 2006 - I Am a Polar Bear

I had a revelation tonight. I lived in Switzerland for nearly a year and I never talk about it. The only real reason for this is laziness, I suppose – it’s easier to talk about things that happened more recently, but I got around most of Switzerland when I was living there. So today I… More Year Abroad: Château-d’Œx Balloon Festival 2006

Year Abroad: My Switzerland Scrapbook - I Am a Polar Bear

I am currently (and hopefully temporarily) unemployed. That means my wings are clipped until I get a new job and a new income. But it’s not so bad. Somewhere between five and eight years ago, I bought a 12×12 scrapbook and only did one (bad) page. I’ve been looking at it half-guiltily ever since. Over… More Year Abroad: My Switzerland Scrapbook

There were two other native English speakers in my class – Jemma, who was from my university, although we’d never met before, and Angela, from the USA. We became close –… More Year Abroad: Zurich

Year abroad: Zermatt - I Am a Polar Bear

One day in the depths of winter, the Triplets decided, in their wisdom, to do a day trip to Zermatt. That’s not such an easy trip by public transport from Neuchâtel. We wanted to get the 7.34am train but Angela wanted to sleep in and get the 9.34am train which wouldn’t get us there until… More Year abroad: Zermatt
