Jozi Soul in Zurich – World, here I come

2011-09-01 07:45

As if a first-time trip to Zurich wasn’t enough excitement for a young lady to bear, I had to move house the very morning of my trip while police fired rubber bullets and water cannons at Julius Malema supporters a few blocks from my new address.

So this Jozi soul is off to a land far from home and is so excited its slightly embarrassing.Wide inquisitive eyes darting from one new thing to another – check.

Digital camera hanging from my neck just screaming: “Hey, look at me! I take pics of the random things you walk passed every day, coz – you guessed it – I’m a tourist” – check.

Roaming set up ... well at R100 per megabyte when roaming with Vodacom, I quickly abandon that idea and opted for getting a local SIM card when I get there.

Passport, medical insurance, hotel reservations and all the other paperwork I have to produce at each of the many airport security check points – check.So it looks like we’re good to go.

Next stop: Munich, the connecting flight to Zurich.
