And so it begins

"Hey my job would like me to spend six months in Switzerland. Would you like to come with?"

A little over seven months ago my wife asked me this question. My initial thoughts were a bit scattered. What would I do about work? What would we do about our house and our dogs? How expensive would it be? Would she want to go alone? We talked about it for a few days and eventually we decided to throw caution to the wind and say yes to the offer. Six months apart seemed to be too much for either of us to go through so we made the decision that it would be for the best if I quit my job and took care of the house/apartment in Switzerland while my wife was at work. (No joke, my wife actually agreed to let me be a stay at home husband! What a sucker! What a caring and loving woman I married.)

We figured out all the details and her job set us up with an apartment in Zurich. After talking about it, we both thought I should start this blog so that 1) I would have something creative to do while in Zurich and 2) people back home could browse through this blog and read about all the cool stuff that we are up to.

So that's my story and here's my blog. I don't know how regularly I will be able to update it but chances are I'll try at least once a week to write something and failing that, I'll definitely post pictures of cool stuff I see here for people to look at. Enjoy and beware for you'll probably see/read about some weird stuff.

  1. I'm looking forward to reading your blog. It'll be nice leisurely reading on my work breaks. I think with you being a stay at home hubby you should have plenty of time to update your blog more regularly than once a week. I mean, how much can you possibly have to take care of in that apartment? ��
