UK Northern lad hits Zurich

Hi,


I'm originally from Yorkshire and landed in Zurich to work in Jan. It's been fun as you can imagine as my plans of weekly commuting back to my wife and young kids most weekends hit a roadblack in March with the Covid stuff and have been flying home sporadically due to the heinous costs of flights with Swiss at present

Been a lurker on here a while but thought was time to properly join up and post as the company I work for has mentioned a perm switch from October so I might have lots of questions

Hi and welcome.

What's a perm switch? As they can't force you to wear curls in future it's gotta be something else.

Re: UK Northern lad hits Zurich

Aye up and welcome, from a Leodensian... still waiting to restart my weekly commute because Swiss in their infinite wisdom decided to run only one northern flight this week!

Regards

From the third world to the first... I am sure it will be such a relief for you not to have to walk 2km to fetch water in the morning.

Jokes aside, if you can make it truly permanent then do so ASAP if you want to do something truly life-changing. How old are the kids?

Re: UK Northern lad hits Zurich

Welcome to Switzerland. If you swing by Bern let us know and we'd happily meet up for a pint. We spend quite a bit of time near Lake Constance and I'm in Zurich from time to time. I know Yorkshire pretty well, but more so Derbyshire. Best of luck - Bruce

Well I live near Milton Keynes nowadays so I'm still waiting for Easyjet to get their arse in gear so that I can fly to Luton again for 1/3 of the price of my flights to Heathrow with Swiss too

Nice one I'll have to get a post going here one weekend when I'm not on-call or going back to UK - I also like a sherbet

They're 5 and 3 - my wife hasn't been over here to see Switzerland yet so I haven't yet started working on her yet but I'm sure they'll all love it.
