From Singapore to Zurich

Hi everyone,

I (very) recently moved here to Zurich all the way from Singapore to join my husband. Unfortunately, he is away in Germany during the weekdays for work so i'm left to explore this beautiful city on my own. Would love to meet others who are new here so that we can do so together
No one needs to feel lonely in a new country!

Looking forward to new friendships,

Felicia

Re: From Singapore to Zurich

Hi Felicia,

I also moved from Singapore to Zurich recently (in April to be precise). I am American by birth and have lived in many different countries because of my husband's job. I find life definitely less frenetic here than in Singapore. It has been a transition but a welcomed one. Have you looked into some of the Women's clubs in the area (American Women's Club of Zurich (AWCZ) and Zurich International Women's Association (ZIWA)? They run a lot of different events and activities which may be worth investigating.

Best of luck to you re: settling in!

Thank you for the suggestions. Will definitely have a look at those clubs once i'm settled in a little and have gotten used to how things work. I do live close to the city centre but still its definitely more relaxed here because lower population numbers. Singapore has gotten wayyy crowded over the years and seems to be bursting at the seams!
