Re: From California to Zurich :)

Hi everyone! Thank you for the Welcome. I greatly appreciate it.

@ Jeroen: PC7 Team? ahh so that must have been those planes i saw and heard. I was wondering what that was. hehe I thought there was some kind of event i didn't know about.

@ Saint7UK and @ wdpris: I lived in Southern California.... Orange County area. In Irvine to be exact.

@ araqyl: Thanks! I would look into it.

Again, Thanks for the welcome. You're all awesome.

Cheers

As you are in Dubendorf, which has the military-only (but mostly unused) Dubendorf Airport next to it, expect quite a few airshows

Re: From California to Zurich :)

Hey fellow southern Californian! I grew up between LA and Orange counties and graduated (twice) from CSUF. Hope you get getting used to CH life. I know after three years there are still plenty of things I am still getting used to. :-)

See ya around sometime!
Ashley

Re: From California to Zurich :)

Totally know what you mean, Jenny! My husband also encourages me to "get out". It helps that he's Swiss and can show me the ropes.

This website might give ya some handy tips to living in CH (esp the "Moving to Zurich" section) and give you a chance to meet some other girls. I know I've found it fun and useful!
