Hello at last!

So... a long-overdue hello to everyone from a long-time lurker!

I'm afraid it's already been a fair few months since I moved to Zurich from the UK, during which time I've benefitted greatly from the advice on the forum. However, I feel that it's now time for me to introduce myself, and join the party for real!

A little bit about me.... I'm 26 years old, a postdoc at ETH, and moved here from the UK at the end of 2011. Although I was originally planning only a 9-month stay, this is now likely to extend - hence the decision to reveal myself at long last (wow... that sounds inappropriate!). Along with the day job, I'm a keen sportsman (particularly cycling, rugby, skiing, mountaineering, football) and pianist, and enjoy travelling as much as possible.

Having decided at last to really give the place a go (decisiveness isn't one of my strong points....), I'd love to make some new friends, get involved in some activities, and find people who will really give me the motivation to learn the language and integrate a little better!

Thanks!

Re: Hello at last!

Well thanks to everyone for the replies!

I forgot to add... I haven't played for a couple of years, but I was a very keen tennis player throughout my youth too, and have brought over my rackets etc to switzerland, so I'm definitely up for a game or two!

Again thanks for the replies. See you around/on the forum!
