hello

I am a litte impatient new member of forum , because I haven't moved to Switzerland yet. I'll be by the end of this year. So before that I wanted to get some information from the local people of you..
I'm going to move in Zug for work. I never visited there before, but as I heard it can be a little boring to me since I'm coming from a big city, İstanbul..
I'm 30 year old single lady who is used to live in an awake city 24 hours a day. I like sports and shopping, spending time with friends.
Is there anyone who is going to tell me that would be a mistake to move my life to Zug? I'm very exciting about the idea , but I have such doubts..
pls enlighten me..

Hello

Yes, Zug is ok from Mo-Fri. Sat afternoon - Sunday is ghost town. Apartments are very expensive. I would choose Luzern or Zurich to live. Either way is 20 minutes.

Good luck

Re: hello

Istanbul's wonderful - you'll find driving in Zug less of a challenge But Switzerland is cosmopolitan and friendly - honestly

Come, try - you can always go back. Between Zug and Zurich, you'll find something to do for nightlife and the country you'll love.

Otherwise, sue Karu as the first to reply to your thread

Welcome to the forum badi
Don't panic, just come over for the experience. Switzerland (or anywhere else for at matter) is what you make it

Re: hello

Thank you all for giving me courage. The worst habit of me is , I always ask for people's approval before I make my mind
It is not up to me to choose where I'll live,the company I'm working for is going to find me an apartment in Zug. Everything is not defined yet, once it is I'll open new topics
When I move in there, I hope to find the opportunity to add exciting memories & good friends to my life.
Thank you all again for warm welcoming me..

Re: hello

I have been living in Zug for 3 months and came from central London. I absolutely love it and you will too if you like sports.

Monday-Friday are lots of fun socially, there are a lot of expats and foreigners are generally extremely friendly. Weekends are quiet, that's true but what better time to go hiking/skiing/swimming depending on the season. The lake is breathtakingly beautiful. And for nightlife during weekends, Zurich is a 24-minute train ride away and the trains run until after 3am.

I have to leave because my job hasn't worked out and I am very very sad to go.

It's not a mistake, I promise!

Re: hello

Sorry to hear you have to leave..
I'll come in the middle of winter uwww I guess it would be very cold , untill then I will take German courses, I should learn to express myself at least.
I'm so glad to hear good things from you all.. I fell more comfortable&confident now.

By the way this is a great forum site.. I loved it , I'm at work now but I can't help myself reading and reading posts from different threads
