Greetings from Texas

Hello all! I'm new here, just trying to gather some intelligence as we consider a potential relocation to Zurich for my husband's work.

We're currently living in Austin, TX where my husband is an IT program manager and I stay at home with our young child.

A company in Zurich has been heavily recruiting my husband, so we're considering a grand adventure. My husband is a German citizen, and I was an expat in Munich for several years previously and also worked in corporate relocation before I quit to stay home for a while, so we're not completely new to life as expats or international relocations.

I'm going to be posting some specific questions elsewhere, but wanted to say hello first!

Lauren

Hello! We are from TX (DFW and IAH), but might be moving to Austin the end of the summer! We've been in ZH for 2 years and LOVE IT!

PM me, you can help me w/AUS and I'll help you with ZRH

Re: Greetings from Texas

Hello Lauren!
Will be great to welcome you both to Zurich, although you definitely want to eat all the Tex-Mex you can before coming, as you won't find such tasty tacos here!

From a Los Angelena to a Austinite, welcome in advance!
