teriyake says hi -moving to Zurich soon

Hello everyone!

The title says it all! I am new here (my nickname comes from a club night in Melbourne, but feel free to abbreviate to T), preparing our upcoming move to Kanton Zurich. We, that is myself, a German chick, my Austrian husband, and our two dual-to-triple nationality children. We have moved around quite a bit in the past ten years, from la Romandie to East Coast US to Spain back to Germany. I thought this would be our final stop for a while, but my husband's company is closing down shop here and relocating him to Kanton Zurich. as my oldest kid is school age next fall, we wanna move before then in order to have her start primarschule there, of course.

So I am here mainly to get an international perspective on things, recommendations on what/how/who (right now, good relo agency to help with shizzle, for example) and maybe meet some nice people I have lived in Switzerland before, but I studied, so living as a student is quite a difference to moving in with a whole family, finding a job for me etc pp.

What else - I love reading, traveling, working out and just rediscovered tennis for me this summer. I have been vegetarian for 20 years, love to cook (and to the children's horror, to experiment), we like hiking and outdoorsy stuff even though we have not gotten around to do so much with the kids in tow.

I guess I'all see you around!

T

Lol. I feel slightly out of place here....I am not a huge huge "oh, I love CH and want to move there" newbie, and seeing all those posters who are in love with Switzerland feels like I am an impostor.

Oh well, I am sure I will love it (again) once I am there.

Hah! Progress! Mr T did eventually sign the contract, so we are in it for real now. Let the fun begin

I guess you might be reading from me more often now!
