Moving to Zurich from Edinburgh!

Hello EFers

Some of you may have seen my post about job hunting in Zurich a few months ago. Well...I have now finally got everything sorted (found a post with my current firm!) and am moving over to Zurich in 3 weeks' time. I am currently based in Edinburgh where I've been for the past 11 years and am originally from Cambridge.

I'm really looking forward to the big move (but have sooooo much to organise here before I go!!) and hopefully to meeting some of you at the EF events.

EF has proved invaluable to me for finding info about the move so thanks to everyone for all your posts over the years

Louisa

Congratulations! Looking forward to seeing you here at an event. There's plenty of beer in Zurich, and some of it is quite good.

Yes agree with that Posted on Facebook only this morning (at 4am!) about how I will miss the "already light when you're walking home" feeling of summer here. However I will not miss the "not really ever summer" of summer here! (though probably after a few days of Zurich summer I will be begging for a nice cool day of Scottish summer...!)

It sets at teatime here.

It's still light for another six hours, though.

Bloody mountains.

hehe, yes summer here can be a bit too hot for us Scots. No cooling sea breeze here. Just have to escape up the mountains to more bearable temperatures or jump in the lake

Re: Moving to Zurich from Edinburgh!

Hey and welcome to Zurich!!!

I moved here back in December but moving back to UK due to having lost my job! I can honestly say this has been such a great experience, the people i have met, the skiing i ve done, the walks, workouts i went through... This has honestly been life changing

On the subject of moving, if you were looking for furniture, i ve got some i bought in March which is looking for a good home to fill... you never know

Many thanks and good luck!!!!

Where's this good beer you speak of? Other than the good stuff you sell with your wonderful cheese at the Markthall?
