_Almost_ in Switzerland

Hi all,

I'm still in the UK at the moment but making plans to move over to the Zurich area by next summer. I found this forum and it's an absolute goldmine of information - forewarned is forearmed and everything!

So step one is to find a job, so I'm looking forward to mining this site and its members for info on companies and working culture

Take care

Weetruffle

Re: _Almost_ in Switzerland

About a year ago I met a lovely Swiss man in a pub in London and we've decided to move to Switzerland. He works in Zurich at the moment so I'm looking for a role that would be either in the Zurich area or within a commutable distance. He's Swiss German so he's probably stuck on that side of the country for the time being. I speak German and French so I don't really mind (caveat: it's been a while since I spoke them well. I have some serious catching up to do. And SWISS German...omg......).

I'm spending as much time as I can over there to get an idea of where we might gel best. We're both relaxed, outdoorsy people, so I'm fairly confident we'll find our fit somewhere.

Saying all that, we may throw a curve ball and go travelling for 6 months before settling.

Re: _Almost_ in Switzerland

Awww I came out here after my now husband! -More than 7 years ago. Was only 19 when i moved. No that im a little older i can see why she wouldnt be so keen to have her youngest move country after some random man lol

Im just over the Basel border in France. 5 minutes down the road is germany. I much prefer the german language. i find it way easier to pick up but each to their own. Only issue when your trying to practice your german people try practice their english! haha. But there are worse complaints! (Found in the complaints corner of the forum)

6 months blow off sounds wonderful.

And if your a fan of the outdoors then you should really fit in nicely.

Its not all plain sailing though and after a while it can be a little difficult adjusting ... when the holiday feeling eventually leaves... but once you get over that.... hump... you can really settle in and enjoy switz!
