Re: Why or what???

Ok i guess i start

I moved back to Switzerland, as I am the only supporting parent of my twin boys, and financially i just could no longer support them by myself back in the US, i really had no choice.

I knew that i could find a much better paying job here, which acutally i did, three months later...

Moving back to the US, probably..... Most likely... LOL I MISS IT... IT IS MY HOME AS WELL. I just don't know when..... and besides i have to do what is
best for my boys....

Re: Why or what???

WHY? Oh I wish I knew....
WHAT? My Mother!

Short explanation. My mother is Swiss and wanted to "swissify" me.... She always lived in Zurich and wanted me to come and learn about my other culture...

So I thought I'd try to please here and come to study in Zurich...

Re: Why or what???

We moved here on work transfer from the States and took time to settle... we felt the place is too dull and not so exciting specially on sundays and there is pretty much no big entertainment except for bars and pubs.....
We completed a year here and started loving the place.. we don't to winter sports so winters get a little boring but we tend to travel the most in Summer so its beauuuuitful now .... We are not planning to settle down forever but 5yrs is in consideration for now.......

Re: Why or what???

Financial alternatives (to a Job in Switzerland) are really hard to find ,if I got a choice beside money, i would choose between Melbourne or Vancouver , but don't really have a chance , because I don't meet the requirements for a visa.
And a job overseas does not count for my retirement........
But if somebody would give me the possibility , i would go for it.
Switzerland is quiet ok, if you are bored , travel where you want....
With a lack of friends is quite hard to make it through, on my job I don't like many people , only one or two, it is hard to find people with the same goals.
My taste of music is also totally different , i Like Punk,Grunge, Metal , hate dubsteb (and electronic) or disco and Rap/Hip Hop.

Re: Why or what???

My wife and I decided to stop teaching in the US state school system and teach overseas. Switzerland was one of our top two places to go and we got the opportunity to come and teach here. Never looked back and don't regret a thing.
