Heading for the Land of the Rising Sun !

6 February 2018

After a packed 2017, I decided to take a short break and go and see some friends who live in Japan, whom I had met during a language course that I took in Toronto, in Canada. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to see them all, because I met so many Japanese people when I was in Canada.

The story of my 21 weeks in the Swiss army

3 December 2017

As you may know, every man in Switzerland has to do his military service. I will explain briefly how our army works. As a Swiss citizen, the year you turn 16, you are invited for an information day. During this day, you learn about the different functions you can perform in the army. At the end of the day, you have to decide when you want to do your military service. Following this information day, you receive another invitation for the recruitment procedure, two days where you are tested on different levels. Based on the results obtained during these two days, the Colonel of the Recruitment Center assigns you a function.
