I’m Jen, and I live in Zurich, Switzerland, with my husband, Scott, and our dog, Governor. We moved here in October 2013, and are planning to be here for a couple of years. We moved for Scott’s work, but I’m planning to find employment and work as well.
Prior to Switzerland, we lived in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, for two years, as chronicled on my blog A Note from Brazil. We moved from Seattle to Brazil for Scott’s work in 2011. I did not have a work visa, so this was more than just a geographic change for me. Navigating a new language and a tangle of new streets, while also redefining who I was without a job. All challenges that I was nervous but excited to take on.
This blog was just one part of all that and has been a great outlet for sharing stories about our expat life. I thought the audience would be mostly my mother, but I’ve had visitors from all of the world. It’s been really fun to connect with people who I never would have met otherwise. And now the blog continues, under a new name, A Note from Switzerland.
Here’s to new adventures!
