Time goes so fast indeed. I remember how I would constantly remind myself that I won’t be able to stay long in Switzerland.
Three months was enough. Then I got a job. Okay, two more months. Then came six more, then a year, and least than I expected, I was able to live in Switzerland for surprisingly four long years!
I took that giant leap out of my comfort zone. Since then, things have never been the same again.
Away from my home country, living in Switzerland has taught me a lot and changed me in so many ways. True enough, you’ll get a better understanding of yourself and what surrounds you, once you expand your horizon.
There’s actually a wealth of life lessons I can take with me, especially now that I moved to live in another country. And there are things that Filipinos back home can also learn from the people of the Alps.
