Re: Any Other New Zealanders out there?

G'day mate.

Plenty of ANZACS around. Just jump on the facebook page and I'm sure you'll find a compatible partner for beer and a chinwag...

Re: Any Other New Zealanders out there?

Mate, I am a Kiwi that has been living here for the past 8 Months. I have met many Aussies also but am yet to meet a Kiwi. Would be very keen to meet for a beer and a catch up. I'm living just out of Rheinfelden at present. Send me a PM if you are keen? Cheers, Ben

Re: Any Other New Zealanders out there?

Cheers,
much appreciated for the offer. may have to hit you up as the weather warms and i finally get a bike. May need some advice on the best way to go about buying second hand here, or importing from Germany and the rest. I Hear bike gear is also alot cheaper over the border.

Another New Zealander At Centrelink


Jokes aside, you will see all the patriotism on both sides of the Tasman pop out around ANZAC day. There is usually something organised so keep your eyes peeled on the forum in the days leading into it.

Re: Any Other New Zealanders out there?

Any Kiwis with littlies? Or Aussies with kids?

We're originally Brits but lived in NZ, and currently in PNG (although in 3 months we're heading over to start our Swiss adventure). Would be cool for our kids to hang out with others who know what jandals/thongs/gumboots are

Re: Any Other New Zealanders out there?

G'day and welcome. I am an Aussie living in the Lake Zurich area (Erlenbach) The original past asked about kiwi or aussie pubs. I find English speakers congregate in English (pommie) pubs, and they are your best bet.

To overgeneralize, Americans are easily found in Starbucks (along with anyone who doesn't like reasonably priced good coffee).

And the only chain of Aussie pubs I know is The Outback - one in Zurich (at Stadelhofen station and maybe another in Uster?) but there are zero Aussies around (but they have a perplexing and small selection of Australian and Kiwi beers, even Tui sometimes, bit it is so far form). I went to the Outback on Australian Election night once, expecting a crowd and raucous atmosphere, but alas, there were only some locals watching the SuperG downhill ski racing.

I recommend the Oliver Twist in the Zurich old town (Niederdorf) is run by a friendly Aussie. While hard to find, the place is so friendly and welcoming I must admit it was a shock, as I had become used to the more, er, reserved style of Swiss bars. And the pub menu is good.

Re: Any Other New Zealanders out there?

I am a New Zealander and will be making the move to Switzerland in a few weeks time.
Any tips on which bank to join and the best way to send money back to NZ?

Re: Any Other New Zealanders out there?

Naw!

They're not really Aussies.

Just disorientated Kiwis.

Re: Any Other New Zealanders out there?

Another ques for you NZers who have moved to Switzerland, how did you go about transferring your NZ driving licence to a swiss one?
Did you have to do a practical test?
