Grüezi! Bonjour! Hello!
You’ve landed on my personal blog. I am Cherry, now a mother of three lively boys and residing in Switzerland. I’ve come a long way from being the school girl who grew up in an international school in Saudi Arabia, the college teen who studied in the Philippines, and that tourist who unexpectedly met her husband in a museum in Rome in 2006.
Welcome to our version of the Swiss life!
Since deciding to live here 10 years ago, we’ve been relocating every few years, discovering new regions and new dialects on the way. Now we are in the most challenging region yet, as we try to integrate into a new home in a new language, French, after living in the German-speaking region for 8 years. And because of the circumstances that led us to this life, we are never really sure if we will stay in this country forever either, so While in Switzerland is dedicated to our time here, exploring the country and integrating into Swiss life while preserving our multi-cultural and multi-lingual family values.
Please feel free to look around, this site is a few years old but continues to grow albeit quite slowly. If you enjoy reading about our version of Swiss life and its peculiarities, you’re welcome to join the mailing list and follow us as we raise our children and grow this blog. Alternatively, you can also follow us on Facebook or Instagram. 😉
