After four months of commuting to Zurich three days a week, I am now - as of this weekend - starting up my home business again as a translator. My time there in the translation department of a bank came about unexpectedly at a time when I had just turned freelance at the beginning of this year. It was a great professional opportunity and I'm very glad I committed myself to it.
It was sad to say goodbye to my colleagues, I must say. They are a fantastic bunch of people, and I'll miss them. We had a little 'drinks & nibbles' party on my final day, Thursday, where they presented me, among other things, with a Switzerland football shirt which they had all signed on the back with a black marker pen! What a lovely gesture.
