Yorkshire To Zurich

Hello everyone!

I thought it was high time I created an account here since I find myself coming back with increasing frequency for a good old lurk

Came to Switzerland from the UK a few years ago with my partner for her job. She's a German to English Translator and I work in art and animation - freelance.

Not really so much a small world, but more that Yorkies do like to let it be known that we are... eg, if you're at a party, how do you know if there's a Yorkshireman in the room? You won't need to, he'll already have told you. (it also works with Texans and Vegans too I've been told)

Re: Yorkshire To Zurich

Never ask someone if they're from Yorkshire. If they are, they'll already have told you. If they're not, there is no need to embarrass them.

Welcome from another Tyke.

Don't be soft. Daft = daft. Haporth = half-penny's worth.
