Hello!! Italian couple moving from UK to Zurich end of May

Hello everyone!

My name is Elena and I will be moving to Zurich with my husband at the end of May. I will start my PhD at ETH on 1st June, he is looking for a job but hasn't found anything yet...hopefully it will be a bit easier once we are there

We are both from Italy but we've been living in UK for the past 4/5 years.

We are going to drive to Switzerland with out little FIAT Panda so basically we are not sure yet we'll actually get there

I have been reading this forum for a few weeks now, so it was about time I posted an introduction!!

Hope to get to know you better

Lincoln Cathedral is out and out the most precious piece of architecture in the British Isles and roughly speaking worth any two other cathedrals.

I hope you have a head for heights, Zurich is 387 meters higher than Lincoln!

Yeah, jokes apart Lincoln is a beautiful city, we had a wonderful time here and made great friends! Steep Hill (leading to the cathedral quarter) is one of the pretties places I have seen in my life

I was born very close to the mountains and miss them a lot! So looking forward to moving to Zurich!

I thought I was going to miss UK and English people after leaving...but after finding this forum I don't think that will be a problem!!

Welcome, but sadly your first introduction to Switzerland will be the motorway tax for your car at the border. The vignette costs 40CHF (€33.33 – you can pay in euros)

Thank you! Well...coming from a country (Italy) where that sum is just about enough for a return trip to the mountains (1.5h drive) I am very happy to pay 33€ for the whole year!!! !!

I used FIAT-126 and FIAT-UNO to get on Holidays from Zürich to Paris and London and to Bordeaux, Marseilles and Torino, so that I do not see a problem

looked at the Lincoln Cathedral. Is that late Gothics or very early Renaissance ?

Wishing you a safe journey to Switzerland and that you will enjoy life here. I am also new but am finding my way around and have just started to make a few friends. Takes time but well worth it. Welcome!!
