Move to Zürich

I have moved to Zürich on July from Auckland where I've been in about 10 years.

I am working as a software engineer here in Zürich for IT company which is based on California and runs a sort of cloud services.

It took about 3 months to get working permit in Switzerland after getting an offer. It was a bit tough time for us because we had no idea when it would be completed.

Once my family and I have got the permit, we were so busy to handle everything, ... arrange for moving; telling to friends, relatives, and coworkers; arrange process for our house; etc etc ...

Due to hard effort of my daughter and wife, we can finally arrive at Zürich.
