Ticino --> German Switzerland?

Hi guys
Thanks for welcoming me to this forum.
I wanted to introduce myself, I have lived in Ticino for 3 years but for work i travel a lot also in the German-speaking Switzerland.
I have always found life in Ticino very beautiful, both for the language, because I am Italian, even if I speak good German, lately I am wondering if it would not be better to move to German-speaking Switzerland.

The needs that would bring me to a step of this kind would be related to work, as I find life in Ticino satisfactory from all points of view.
What I perhaps miss a little is internationality but all in all I feel very comfortable.
To all of you who have moved from Ticino to German-speaking Switzerland, what do you think? Thanks a lot

Moving Inputs

Hi guys
I have lived in Ticino for 3 years but for work i travel a lot also in the German-speaking Switzerland.
I have always found life in Ticino very nice, both for the language, because I am Italian, even if I speak good German, lately I am wondering if it would not be better to move to German-speaking Switzerland.

The needs that would bring me to a step of this kind would be related to work, as I find life in Ticino satisfactory from all points of view.
What I perhaps miss a little is internationality but all in all I feel very comfortable.
To all of you who have done this kind of moving, does it make sense or should i better stay where i am ? Thanks a lot for any feedback , i appreciate it!

Alas, I did it the other way, Zurich to Ticino, 30 years ago.

I would never move back up north.

Thank you! I also really like it here, for me as an Italian it is the perfect blend between Italian life style and Swiss quality... I think I will remain here :-)
Thanks Tom! :-)
