Good morning dear readers.
Here we are, located smack in the middle of the city of Zürich after two weeks of totally (controlled) chaos. A big truck with almost all of my belongings arrived well this Monday. It took a long time packing in boxes in the safest possible way to move the long way to Switzerland. On the same Monday, Alexis and I arrived by plane and then we entered our new apartment that I had actually only seen on a poor quality video prior to moving in - well, it took some nerves. It's even bigger than our condo in Sweden, a little different in style with less high ceilings, but with nice old doors and more space and more rooms. It's also located in a fabulous area, three minutes to the lake and the nature and six minutes to the best spot in Zürich city, namely Paradeplatz at the end of high street). The tram stops outside my entrance door and shops like pharmacy, grocery stores and dry cleaning, flowers ... etc as well. The building itself is really pretty and all the things inside as well which of course has a huge influence on the overall feeling. We have the elevator up to our door and we live at the top floor so it's very convenient.
I must say, I really like it so far.
When we arrived, the city offered glorious late summer weather with shining sun and warm temperatures. I was literally walking in a top and flats. That "small" detail, is something I will be enourmously curious to explore futher this winter; if the climate is that much milder than in Stockholm. I wish!!!
Well, I just wanted to drop a note now when internet is working properly. So, see you very soon I guess!
