Polish couple in Zug

Hello everyone,

It's really good to be here on this forum!

We are Polish couple in their late 20's and we moved from Dublin to Zug recently.
My husband works in IT and I am physiotherapist and massage therapist by profession.

I worked with children for last few years in preschools and as Learning Support Assistant in English speaking environment - mostly big international schools and mostly with expats' children. I also provided learn and play therapy and I would like to find something similar in Zug or Zurich but I don't speak any German....

We lived in Ireland where we planned to stay a bit longer as we love the country and the atmosphere there... people are lovely there but things changed suddenly and now we are here trying to assimilate and get to know Switzerland little by little... life can be unpredictable

It is very different from what I know and as I lived in US for a year and then traveled to South Africa, Ireland in 2008 and Germany for short period of time I was sure this experience was enough to prepare me for and so called 'culture shock' but it affects me...

So far as everyone else I hope to make the best of it and this forum is with no doubt excellent source of information and the best place to get support and talk to others in similar situation so Many Thanks for that!

Zug is really quiet, even too quiet but I hope to get used to it with time and hope not to go crazy before

Re: Polish couple in Zug

Welcome to the forum and Switzerland.

Get yourself down to Pickwicks and mingle with the people there.

I don't think there are any EF events in Zug so you might have to get the train up to Zuerich which is a little bit more lively

Re: Polish couple in Zug

My wife and I both have Polish ancestry, and until she married me she even had a Polish surname (but only speaks Italian).

But her Polish great-grand father was born in 1843, and came here as a political refugee about 1865 and married a Swiss (from Winterthur), and my Polish great-grandparents were born around 1885 and went to the US!

Oh, I'm into the exotic, but I've never hidden my nationality on this forum.
