To Switzerland again or not - that is the question!

Hi all.

Love reading the posts on here so thought I’d post a question in the hope of some constructive / objective perspective and thoughts.

I’ve lived in Zurich previously and left about 10 years ago. While I loved living there and really made the most of my time I did find life quite different to my native London, many strict rules and often quite cold culturally so did decide to leave. There are however many positives and a plethora of things I miss about CH.

What the last 10 years in London has given me time to do is reflect on my life in ZH and how (shockingly sad) life and attitudes in the UK have taken a turn for the worse. Having recently gone through a nasty divorce my mind now turns to what to do with my life as I now have a new chapter to start and coincidentally was contacted a week ago about an interesting role back in one of the banks in ZH.

I guess my question is, does anyone have experience to share of living multiple times in Switzerland? If not, I’d appreciate some advice. I know people change as they go through life, I know I certainly have, and the thought of just walking my beautiful dog in the mountains most weekends, swimming in alpine lakes and keeping things simple yet personally fulfilled is a real draw to make the move back…

… or am I mad, once done don’t try and relive / repeat the past, should I look for a new adventure to base this new chapter one.
