Relocating to a new place can often be a daunting and overwhelming journey, filled with uncertainties and endless questions. You're not just transitioning to a new home; you're adapting to a whole new culture, lifestyle, and environment. While every individual's experience is unique, there's no doubt that a little guidance can make a world of difference in smoothing out the bumps along the way. And who better to provide that guidance than those who have already walked the path you're about to embark on?

This is where Hannah Rose and Haya come into the picture. Both made the decision to leave their home countries and venture to Ticino to pursue their educational goals at Franklin University Switzerland. From the best places to eat and shop, to the nuances of local culture and etiquette, their blog offers a wealth of insider knowledge. Their intention is not just to provide a list of recommendations, but to give you a glimpse into their own journey - the mistakes they made, the shortcuts they discovered, and the memories they created.
