Hello to all From a New(ish) Kiwi Family!!

Hi All,

We are a re-turning Kiwi Family coming from New Zealand originaly and have been here in Zürich Oerlikon now just 10 days and loving it!!!!!!!

I say returning as we lived here previously between 2000-2005, since then we traveled about the world a bit and decided Swiss Life is pretty darn good so decided to re-locate permanently!

We are 2 Adults 2 Kids (11 and 8) and soon to join us our Golden Retriever..

Staying in Oerlikon and looking around for an apartment in Zumikon or near by.

Riding Harley Davidson's is my thing and my Wife is into the Sewing Quilting thing..

Well that's us and Looking forward to hearing from some of you!

Cheers
Aaron

Welcome

We (2 adults, 1 baby) aren't quite there yet. We will be in about 2 months and not far from Zurich. Our Springer Spaniel will join us in Jan 2011. How are you finding having a dog in Switzerland and what did you do about accommodation??

If you guys ever fancy taking the dogs out...let us know

Re: Hello to all From a New(ish) Kiwi Family!!

Hi Alison.. Our Golden Retriever will join us in a couple of months..so can't comment too much but I say that Dogs are welcome most places here and are able to travel the trains etc with you. There is HEAPS of info on this forum on dogs in Switzerland and I found it very usefull in answering my questions..

Appartments usualy state if pets are welcome.. if they dont then you can ask the landlord. As long as they are under control and don't disturb the other tennants then shoud be accepted in most cases.

Yeah would be good to get the dogs together for a run.. good luck with the move!

Regards
Aaron

Re: Hello to all From a New(ish) Kiwi Family!!

G'day, Kia ora and welcome to Zürich!

We are a German-Argentinean family that has just relocated from Queenstown about a month ago. We lived in NZ for a time, we came back to Europe and then back to NZ last year, but now we decided to be closer to our families and Switzerland seams to be a great place as well. We are close to Oerlikon so happy to catch up one day.

Cheers,

Lucas, Franzi and Felix

Re: Hello to all From a New(ish) Kiwi Family!!

Hi KiwiFamily
As I'm not sure where in NZ you are from... I can't comment too strongly... but seriously, you want to leave NZ?? best plae on earth if you ask me... absolutely adore the place and would live there given half the chance, but the points... and my age are no longer on my side

anyway, your post came up in my search thread because i searched for 'Quilting' I have recently fallen in love with the craft, and am waiting impatiently for my new sewing machine to arrive from the UK. ....

so, Kiwi Mum... I would be very interested in hooking up to share quilting ideas... or fabrics ... or doggie walks too as we have a Brder Collie...

we will move to Egg b.Zurich in 7 days time, so if you are not too far it would great to get to know someone with a common interest!

welcome (back) to Swissie life

Re: Hello to all From a New(ish) Kiwi Family!!

Kiaora - wilkommen,

we're nationalised kiwis - lived in Taranaki for 8 years - moved from Scotland and moved to CH almost 3 years ago. My wife is Swiss and the kids and her have 3 nationalities now.

Still have properties there and will be back - our two kids, 12 & 14 had all their formative years there and miss going to school barefoot. Lots of pros and cons but NZ really did get expensive the last few years.

Who knows were we'll end up - but we're in Obertoggenburg now in Ostschweiz so if you come this way............

Jerry & Anna, Tara & Finn

Welcome to CH and the forum.

Hope your family enjoys it here, and hope you avoided the earthquake back home (/generalization)

Re: Hello to all From a New(ish) Kiwi Family!!

Hi All,
This is the wife of the old 'New(ish)' kiwi guy. I had no idea he had posted here and that so many lovely people had replied. Our situation has changed a little in the last year and a bit, so...
We now live in Zollikerberg, Zurich.
Daughter is now nearly 13 and son is 9 and a 1/2.
Our Golden Retriever is now 4 and a 1/2 and loving it here.
I am still quilting/sewing and scrapbooking and always happy to hear from others with similar interests.
Our kids go to the local school, I am taking German classes once a week locally and we are muddling through the swiss school system.
Thanks to all who welcomed us originally, and I promise to check on this thread before another year and a half has past.
Cheers

That was meant to be has 'passed'.

I wouldn't want to be confused with my spelling challenged husband.. (his words, not mine)
