Biking to Bremgarten

Today was a beautiful sunny day in Zürich. After a week of rain, I seized the opportunity to bike in the sun! I started biking to Spreitenbach to see the Bruno Weber Park, which is roughly 10km West of Zürich. However, either fate wanted me to go South, or I’m just bad with directions (admittedly, probably the later) because I ended up heading towards Bremgarten in the Canton of Aargau. I saw a picture of a cool old tower in the Bremgarten Alte Stadt, so I continued to bike there, which was another good option!

Hiking through Schlieren Forest

I recently moved to Schlieren, a city westly adjacent to Zürich. It’s a quiet city, and feels much closer to classic Switzerland than Zürich city, where I lived for two months. My co-worker also moved to Schlieren, so we decided to explore Schlieren forest, which is about a 15 minute walk from where I live.

There are trails all over the forest. Even some fire areas! We explored mainly the western half of the forest for about 2 hours, then we ended up in Uitikon, a small farming village. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived there it was too dark to take pictures on my potato camera, so I can’t show you the cows and feilds. At some point, I will definitely bike/hike back there and document said cows 🙂

Moving to Zürich

In early May, I moved to Zürich for Software Development internship at Verity Studios AG.

My roommate and I explored a bit, and found this cool park called MFO, which was a massive metal cube structure with vines growing everywhere. The picture (or Google Maps) don’t really do it justice!

We also found the obligatory bull of Zürich:

In the second week or so, I bought a Swiss made bike from a sketchy flea market:
