New in Horgen

Hello Everyone,

My wife and I moved to Zurich in March and have (after much searching!) finally found a permenant place to live in Horgen and moved in last weekend. Now we are reasonably settled we thought it would be nice to introduce ourselves. We have used the forum loads and found it very useful so thanks to everybody that contributes!

A bit about us - my wife is from Germany, born in Poland and I am English. We are late 20s / early 30s and I am an actuary working in a reinsurance company. Prior to moving here we lived in London. We love Switzerland so far and have done a little bit of exploring but want to do more! We have also spent a fair few sunny days by the lake! Now looking forward to skiing and some snowy mountain views!

We hope to attend some events soon and meet some new people and make some new friends!

Hi there.

Welcome to the EF and CH.

It's good to finally settle in your own place.

All the best.

L'O is very very good but eating out there is also quite pricey, even by Horgen standards. The beer garden in the afternoon is delightful though.

Welcome, Don't run into Actuaries very often. I used to be one in the states. My wife and I have been in Switzerland now for 10 years. We love it here.

Yeah it looks nice, we wanted to eat there on Sunday but didn't open for food until 18:30 and we were too hungry to wait an hour! Then realised hardly anywhere was open to eat on Sunday afternoon so got a takeaway pizza from here:

Was very good!

Yeah, there's not that many of us about, although a higher concentration in Zurich than elsewhere in the world I suspect!

Re: New in Horgen

Hi! I am organizing an event this Sunday (Oct. 23) in order to bring together some people from around here and watch the Rugby final on big screen at 10am. There will be English Breakfast, bacon sarnie, tea and beer from 9am. The place is called Sale Bar and the address is Stockerstrasse 4 (only 100m from the train station in Horgen).

Hope to see you there!

Diego
