New to Zurich!

Hi!

I've just arrived to Zurich from London and am looking forward to (hopefully!) building a new life somewhere between the lake and the mountains

I'm 25, male, spend my free time reading, watching sport and cooking. I've promised myself that I'm going to resume sport / exercise now I'm in Switzerland, so would love to get involved in any sporting activities... from football to boxing!

I currently don't know anyone in the city (living temporarily between Langstrasse & Werd), so would love to get to know you guys, take some advice on permanent housing and start putting down some roots,

James

Hi James, and welcome to Zurich and the EF!

Defeinitely get yourself into the Social Events once you're settled ... that way you can make some contacts, and perhaps find a place to live!

Re: New to Zurich!

James

sounds like you are in the exact same boat as me mate.

Have done next to nothing in sport for the past few years and like yourself want to re-take that back up (football and the cricket on ice in st. mortiz sounds very appealing!)

Additionally have temp accomodation and apparently the process to find decent permanent accom is pretty hard!

Hope you are enjoying your time here!
