Londoner in Zürich

Hi, my name is Devondre, I'm from North London and just arrived in Zürich. Will be working here for like three years. Still sitting in the hotel room, the company is getting my flat in Hohlstrasse ready.

I am full of questions, for example how is the area like around my new flat, what are the people like, etc.

Hope this is di right place to ask.

Kind regards

Devondre

Re: Londoner in Zürich

Welcome to the Forum.

It can be odd and also daunting to be in a new area with a most peculiar mixture of languages being spoken. However, being from London I suppose you have much more experience of that than most born-here-Swiss. I expect someone who turns out to be living next door to you, or who lived next door to you in London, will be along shortly. It's surprising how many 'connections' one has.

There's usually a bunch of us on here if you need things - everyone else barrages us with questions, why shouldn't you

Good luck with the flat and with settling in.
