Arrived from London, UK

Hello,

Just a quick hello, my name is Tom Draycott, I'm here from London and I'm living in Wetzikon outside of Zürich at the moment. I have a six month contract in an IT job which I hope to extend as I really like it here.

I'm very sociable so if anyone would like to speak to me then please send me an email.

-Tom

Tom,

Welcome - Switzerland has lots to offer, however it can be daunting at first, especially if you are on your own. Get yourself networked on the social side. I am trying to get a Group together, who would be interested in 'Hot air Ballooning.' We have an UK instructor with a balloon, so if you are intersted send me a PM.

Andy

Hi Tom,
Welcome to CH. I'm in the same boat as you, from London (well, sort of, I was born in kashmir, grew up in UK) in IT contracting. Zurich is lot livelier then where I am - a pretty little place called montreux!, so you'll have a great time.

Re: Arrived from London, UK

Hi Tom, I'm from UK too, got Friends in Wetzikon, so know it well, I'm north of Zurich.. Enjoy your time here, hope you can extend past 6 months, takes about that long to really settle in, I've been here 3 1/2 years and I'm still finding new things to see and do. great place to live. If you get the chance go down to Rapperswil (by train) great Italian restaurants right on the lake.

Hi Tom and welcome to EF and the Zurich area.
Good luck with your extension for work, 6 months isn't that long to learn to like it here.

Hi Tom

My fiance and I are moving to Wetzikon in January. What are your thoughts about the place. Im a keen cyclist and there seems to be loads of cool places to go biking, hiking etc.

Thanks

DJC
