From London to Zurich in January

Hi everyone... (clears throat nervously)

So! I'm moving from London to Zurich in January to join my husband. He's been working there for the past few months (uh, since we got married, actually...).

I'm a writer. Was a copywriter in advertising for most of my 20s and then started writing books. Not sure exactly where we'll be living yet, hopefully somewhere within a very, very short stroll to good coffee and people-watching. Very much looking forward to the move. Spent my childhood and teenage years moving around Asia so looking forward to getting back into the expat zone...

I'm also on Twitter (is this the right place to put this? No idea) at @gkateb

Okay, that's enough from me. Take care!

Welcome Gemma
No need to feel nervous, the EFers are a nice bunch.
Zurich is a very good choice both for living and having fun.
Cheers,

Re: From London to Zurich in January

Hi! My potential employer sent me this book http://www.amazon.com/Living-Working.../dp/1905303157 for reference. It seems useful for now, but good to compare notes with EF..

Re: From London to Zurich in January

Hi Gemma,

I just moved out to Basel from Scotland a few weeks ago. We have a temp flat right in the city - bakeries and shops right at the foot of the stairs!! Its like we're living in Harrods!! We will be spending the first few weeks or so getting to know Basel but definitely want to explore Zurich to see what that has to offer and explore the countryside as well.

Hope you enjoy your move

Hi Gemma

Moved over to Zurich (in March) after 6 years in London too, to join my boyfriend. Having grown up in Asia too, I was also ready for a change!

How are you finding it?

Re: From London to Zurich in January

A warm welcome to Swissland Gemma,

We are a nice bunch here...never let anybody spoil your virtual stay on here and if they strike, hit 'em hard!!

Of course, you can't take me seriously because I am a *joker*...

Once again welcome to your 2nd home where you should help us to impose our beloved English language on every Swiss out there :P
