Confused emotions of spotless mind

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

These days are the days of emotions and boxes. It feels almost that we are packing not only sheets, plates and cloths, but also all those memories that these last years in Switzerland brought us.

Alex has been living here for more than 6 years and myself, Marta, for more than 4. It feels a lifetime and a flash at the same time.

Walking these last days among the streets of Zurich, we are realizing how we are going to miss this view on the that soccer field at night, while we are eating in our amazing terrace. We are sure that somewhere, in the world, while waiting for a bus that does not come (although the locals will assure us that it will, sooner or later, pass by) we will miss those buses and trains which are so swissly on time that they make you realize that, in this world, you can change trains and buses within only 3 minutes times (if you are coming from a country like Italy, this can slightly be close to a miracle- no Madonna can ever make it happen there).

Leaving Switzerland will be like finishing a hot, warm and cozy bath and get ready for an unknown hike out of home: it feels exciting and scaring at the same time.

However, the most difficult part will not be just this. The most difficult part will be to leave those people, those smiles and faces that have been our friends, our colleagues and our days here.

So, before leaving, we would like to thank, among our half open and half close boxes, all the people that for certain we will pack into our hearts before leaving. Riding on the Swiss trains,  no matter where you look outside, the landscape look between unreal and beautiful: the nature shows itself in its impressive majesty without scaring you. We probably lived in one of the most beautiful places in the world. And we will be grateful forever to having had the chance to ride this beautiful train with all of you.

Thank you people, es ist geil gsi 🙂

Marta & Alex
