Lakeside Social is a new meet up designed for ladies based in and around Zurich who want to take part in activities focused on all aspects of adventure and wellness. Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life. Meetups are planned for once a month with each activity hitting one aspect of wellness from physical activities (hiking, jogging, trying kayaking on lake Zurich to trying an adventure sport), social and emotional (coffee talks, trying a new restaurant, social events), Environmental (volunteering to plant flowers, gardening etc), cultural (cooking evenings, cultural excursions and talks), intellectual (learning a new skill, book discussions, going to presentations, museums) spiritual (yoga, meditation) and Occupational (networking evenings). The idea is that, this not just a meetup with 1 activity or interest in mind, but brings together women, who have multiple interests and are interested in a balanced life that incorporates all aspects of wellness.
Let's stretch our legs and soak in some early Spring along the upper Zürichsee. This meetup will begin at Hurden train station at 10:00am.
The walk is flat and should only take just over an hour but we can add in a walk around Rapperswil. We can admire nature on the Upper Zürichsee and make our way lakeside to Bächlihof farm where we can enjoy organic, home grown products for lunch.
If it's particulary nice out, you can even opt to take the ferry back to Zurich from Rapperswil afterwards.
Please bring comfortable walking shoes, water, camera, money for lunch on the farm, and rain layers as this meet up will still take place in light rain.
I look forward to seeing you at Hurden Train Station.
For the book lovers within our group! If you are looking for a good book to read..I highly recommend Educated by Tara Westover. This book stays on your mind long after you've put it down! A page turner that makes for some great discussion. So if you have already read it, or are looking for the next good read and will want to join in a book discussion, come along! We will meet in a café called Café des Amis where we can enjoy coffee, light food or just a dessert (they have sweet and savory crepes!) if we wish! I was able to get a copy of the book in the Pestalozzi Bibliothek in Zurich and Orell Füssli has it. ABOUT THE ORIGINAL BOOK: #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University. Educated : A Memoir is the story of Tara Westover, who started her education formally at the age of 17.
