Welcome to Zurich, I also just moved here a month ago from London.
5 Weeks in and so far all I have done is bore my colleagues (and anyone else who would listen to me) about my failed attempt to secure an apartment. But I hear its quite normal to have these challenges so early on so Im just getting on with it.
I would love to meet up and for drinks and share `Zurich newbie`stories. Also mid-thirties, female (with fiance at home in London) so yes we are doing the long distance thing for a while. So far so good...
Ill drop you a private message
