Moving to Zurich !!!

Hey there,

My husband's company is posting him in Zurich, which means we will be packing our bags after 4 months and landing there for a few years. Im a bit nervous about the whole thing especially since im so comfortable with life and work in Mumbai. Till my work permit is sorted out, I will be living the life of a housewife for the first time Not sure how that will pan out.

We're both in our mid-30s no kids yet and we would (me especially) like to meet with other people and maybe expat social groups, so it would help us 'fit' in well.

I also intend enrolling in a course to brush up my school German and French.

It would be great to get to know and learn from other members in this forum.

Cheers,

Sash

Re: Moving to Zurich !!!

I was going to write almost the same introduction post, with the differences that we are relocating from Ukraine in 2 months and that we have one baby. The rest of the story is the same.

I understand your concerns about being a housewife, I have exactly the same feeling. I will stop working in the end of this month and I think I will miss my job so much. Let's hope that we both will be able to find jobs around Zürich. Anyway, for you it would be easier, as you won't have to care about kindergarten or nanny.

Do you know already in which area you will live?

I moved here 4 years ago and I am still getting used to Zurich but it is a great city and as you will be part of the International scene you will meet lots of new people. The very best of luck with your move.

I, too, am in a similar situation! I'm 30, husband 32 and we are moving over from the USA for my job... We are estimating an arrival date of early August!
