Texan Moving to Switzerland

Hi everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm relocating to Switzerland from Texas in a few weeks. I've heard great things about this forum from some of my other English expats out there. I'm still trying to figure out which city is ideal for me as I believe I'll be able to live anywhere close to a major airport. Anyhow, thanks for this forum and look forward to meeting some of you.

Howdy and welcome. I moved to Swissieland from 76248 in 2007 and I am on my way out the door. Y'all have fun!

Dear sir

Welcome in Switzerland. If you are ever in Zurich, look for Sid's Pub in Oerlikon. There is a small English speaking colony there, meets almost dayly.

Texans are the friendliest people on earth!

Welcome to the forum! If you enjoy Switzerland half as much as I do, you'll be very happy there!

Tough too. I saw a one grab a 2.5 gallon can of gas and take a big swig out of it, looked at the can and said,"Damn, I thought it was water." Went to the cooler and got a beer and that was that. And this was a chick.

Re: Texan Moving to Switzerland

Hello, I am a Texan moving to Zurich in the Spring 2011! I hope we can meet when I arrive. Please figure out the housing situation for me and help me when I get there!
I live in Austin, and love Zurich as much as Austin and more.

See you soon!
JJ

Re: Texan Moving to Switzerland

hi, i used to live in austin as well. great place. am interested in possibly living / working in switzerland as well. would any of you that are on your way to switzerland be inclined to share how / why you're moving to switzerland. more specifically if it's work related what you will be doing and for whom?

if it's too private that's cool. i'm just trying to brainstorm some ideas and see how others are making this possible.

thanks and best of luck if you decide not to post

Re: Texan Moving to Switzerland

Welcome to the EF! Hope you sort out where you want to live (& work?) before you hit the ground, may make things a lot easier!

Just don't be like some guy I heard about, who told the immigration people he had no idea where he wanted to stay or what sort of work he wanted to do, but would "work it out" over the next couple of months ... strangely, he didn't stay in the country for long!

Agree, you just dont show up and hope to live somewhere and have a job. The job aspect needs to be sorted before getting here, necessary work permits, etc..

Thanks for the heads up Billinares, I need to start learning about the areas here pretty soon, I'm not sure yet where I'll be living
