Re: The Only way is Essex to Zurich :)

One thing I do want to add, is that although I have only just this morning registered on this site, I have been reading it for the last couple of months. Almost every question I have had has been answered in the threads on this site, So to everyone who uses this site and posts advice and answers questions on here, I want to say thanks, you have made my job of making a decision to move to Switzerland so much easier.
This is a great site and a fantastic tool for information. And from the many threads and resonses I have read, there are some really good people on here, and most seem to have a great sense of humour too.

Keep it up English Forum.

Re: The Only way is Essex to Zurich :)

I lived in Stanford no Hope for a month. That was enough for me.

The only place in the world where you could get Lobster Tikka Massala for less than £5.

Still, you've seen the light! Welcome to Zürich!
