New to Zurich from Western USA

Hi EF,

I'll be arriving in Zurich in the next couple of weeks to start a multi-year rotation with work. I've been lurking on this forum for months now, and the resources and advice I've found here have already been invaluable.

I grew up in San Diego, but I'm coming to CH from Salt Lake City, where I've been for the last 2 years. I'm a CPA (though I do not do taxes). My hobbies are hiking and brewing beer, and I'm hoping to do a lot of sightseeing in Europe during my time in CH.

Welcome. Former SLC area resident too (Park City). 1-2 hours air from Zurich to anywhere will get you all the sightseeing you can handle. Hiking is great here too. Enjoy.

Welcome to Switzerland!
Go to Monstein near Davos - great for hiking and it has a great micro-brewery

Hi EF,

I'll be arriving in Zurich in the next couple of weeks to start a multi-year rotation with work. I've been lurking on this forum for months now, and the resources and advice I've found here have already been invaluable.

I grew up in San Diego, but I'm coming to CH from Salt Lake City, where I've been for the last 2 years. I'm a CPA (though I do not do taxes). My hobbies are hiking and brewing beer, and I'm hoping to do a lot of sightseeing in Europe during my time in CH.

Welcome to the forum. I'm from Orange County originally, but have lived 20mins from Zurich for the past 3 years. There is a great beer festival in late August early September at a really nice castle, I would highly recommend going 20+ beers available. Look it up on this website, it's largely attended by expats. Best of luck with the move, please let me know if you ever have any questions or want to meetup for a beer sometime.

Cheers,
Mike
