Introduction Theo & Monica from Monchaltorf

Hi all,

Just introducing ourselves.

My name is Monica, I was born in Suriname, South America, moved to the Netherlands when I was 14.
Moved to Ireland in 2008 where I met my husband (in 2011).

His name is Theo a half Swiss / half English Gardener.
Born in UK, raised in Ireland.

We decided to move to CH to try our luck here.
Now living in Monchaltorf

I'm not sure what and how much I can tell about ourselves, I need to 'study' the rules of this forum.

We've lived in Ireland, in a rural area in West Cork, in a Eco-cabin - without electricity.

Honestly, It is a bit of getting used to the concept of Rules, Bills, finding employers who hire non-German speakers, Bills (yes, I know, I've named that twice since it is expensive living here)

Looking for genuine friendship, interesting social groups, fun happenings etc, etc.
I'm sure we'll find our way here eventually - or flee back screaming (that was a joke. I've learned by now to announce a joke....)

I am glad that this English Forum exist, there are a lot of topics covered and you may even get lucky to get some free household stuff :-)

So, the next step is to learn to speak German, since we are living here now (at least for the coming 4 - 6 years).

Monchaltorf is a great place to live so far.
Close to nature and therefor a bit easier for us ( at the moment that includes: Theo, Monica & our Finnish Spitz dog Amalia)

Hopefully we can meet (also English) speaking friends here

Ciao

Hello Monica and Theo!
Eco-cabin living - without electricity sounds very intriguing indeed (love the idea).
