We’ve set up an Instagram account for you! Please share your pictures using the hashtag #WeAreSwissAbroad.
People love to hear about emigrants, as evidenced by the popularity of the documentary series Auf und davon (Up and away) on Swiss public television, SRF. The focus there is on big emotions and potentially explosive situations. But of course that series, in Swiss-German, can only feature a very limited number of people.
What’s your emigration story? Did you do it for love? Was it an entrepreneurial risk? Even if your new home isn’t as spectacular as the Canadian wilderness, we’re sure that your new life in a foreign country is an adventure. So share it with us!
Show your friends and relatives – both at home and abroad – what you’re up to. Tell us who and where you are, what it’s like there, and how you perceive Switzerland from afar.
We hope to discover lots of interesting Swiss people abroad while browsing through the #WeAreSwissAbroad stream, and we’ll repost a selection of your pictures and videos on our Instagram account.
Where do you live? How do you see Switzerland from outside? You can also tell us your story in the comment section below.
