Fernweh is a German word for wanting to get away, or having “itchy feet”. Much alike being homesick when traveling too far out of your comfort zone – but the other way around!

The wonderful airline of SWISS (according to me, the absolute best airline in Europe) has a sale on right now! For those of you who know what I’m talking about when I humbly try to explain how much I need to get away and see something else once in a while, this is your chance.

With prices ranging from 159CHF (Manchester, Hamburg, Düsseldorf and Belgrad) to 340CHF (Las Palmas), it is quite reasonable when traveling from Zürich. Of course, you have to be a little flexible in terms of dates and times, but they do say that flight prices are the cheapest around mid week…

So go ahead and book HERE!!

(and don’t forget to tell me where you’re going once you’re done! 🙂  )

I sincerely hope that you all already know about this wonderful weekly newsletter service about what happens in and around Zürich; RonOrp .

The English issue is sent out every Thursday (in comparison to the German version that is issued daily), and contains A LOT of information on what is going on, such as concerts, parties and other social events, as well as interesting articles and many give aways/competitions. Not to forget is the classifieds, where, as Ron Orp writes himself: “If you’re looking for something (a flat, a ticket, love), have something to give away (a flat, a ticket, ex) or have anything else to say, then this is the place to do it” – love it!

Today’s newsletter as a snapshot:

Ron Orp Newsletter from 13.01.2011

The “Zurich Photo Trip” section is also a great reminder of just how beautiful our fair city is and can be!

This newsletter service is naturally (as it IS a winning concept), also available for the following cities:

Basel, Berlin, Bern, Brasilia, Geneve, London (East), London (North), London (South West), London (West), Luzern, München, New York, St. Gallen, Wien, Winterthur, Zürich, and last, but definitely not least, Zürich (in English).

A great tip therefore is to sign up for this great service ahead of a trip/visit to any of the above mentioned cities, in order to grasp what is worth spending your precious time on once there.

New for Ron Orp is also the iPhone app, available at the App Store. This way you can check everything on offer even when you’re on the run!

So please sign up for this, Ron does a great job of keeping everyone updated on our favourite city!


A little red…

….bag for traveling is another thing I found during my sales round this week…

Red Eastpack travel bag.

The model is easily adjustable and the colour is the BEST in the world, as you can immediately recognise it when it pulls up on the conveyer belt.

Absolute highlight of this one though? The price – 110 CHF at coop city at Bellevue.
