Re: Just landed - female Brit

Welcome! I'm also a fellow Brit (formally living in Manchester, but originally from Oxfordshire) and while new to the forum I've been here a while. I'm based near Brugg and Baden...

If you're feeling homesick, it's probably because you miss your friends, the accessibility that comes with knowing the language and culture, and some creature comforts from home. Each time I'm back in the UK, I pack my case out with bourbon biscuits and decaf tea. Can't get them for love nor money over here.

If I can help you out with anything, or you need some advice, send me a message.

Hello! I am also new in Switzerland from the UK! I am in Zurich though, so not much help to you.

I wouldn't say I'm homesick so much, but it is a bit of a shock to the system, and definitely not as easy to make friends here as in Glasgow!! I hope after you're break home for Easter you settle a bit more here
I live in Zurich as well and it definitely gets easier and more is going than I had imagined - I was in London previously and this is my first experience of living and working abroad.

Been here just over a year now and always happy to meet for a beer or three and give the low down and meet new people. Just let me know!
