hi! moving to Switzerland!

Hi there,

my name is Mienke Hattingh, was born and grew up in South Africa, had great opportunities the last year or so to travel around europe but have now descided to settle down in zurich permanantly from November and start my career as an architect there.

I am very excited about the move but naturally hesitant, haha.. but really looking forward to the adventure and meeting fellow south africans on the other side!

Re: hi! moving to Switzerland!

Welcome to the Forum.
When the SA group have noticed your post, you'll probably get requests to pack heaps of biltong and similar delicacies in your moving boxes...
Hope all goes well with the relocation and that the paperwork works!
