Two Weeks to Basel

Hello,

Our visas have now been approved and we're finalizing our relocation, so it seemed appropriate to introduce myself. First though, I would like to thank the moderators and admins as well as all the forum members. This forum has proven to be an invaluable resource in deciding if Switzerland was the right move and in planning our relocation.

I am a married father of two young children. We will be relocating to Basel in two weeks time, going through the big pharma relocation process. I am originally from the states, but I have lived in the UK for a little over 10 years now, my wife is British and this is her first international move. We enjoy the outdoors, spending time with friends and the occasional piss up, generally pretty average folk.

Besides that, there's not much to say.

Cheers,
Dave

Hi Dave,

Good luck with the move. My family and I are in a similar position, although a few steps behind you. We are a family of 5 and are about to relocate (first time abroad) to Basel in June/July. We hope to visit the area in a few weeks to look at properties and schools in the area.

I wish you and your family well with the move!

Victoria

Re: Two Weeks to Basel

Hi Dave,

I smiled reading your post as there are some similarities between your situation and mine: Let me paraphrase your post:
Hello,

"... I am a married father of two young children. We will be relocating to Basel in six weeks time, going through the big pharma relocation process. I am originally from Spain, but I lived in the UK for a little over 6 years a while ago, coming from the US where we have lived the last 5 years ... We enjoy the outdoors, spending time with friends and the occasional piss up, generally pretty average folk. "

Cheers,

Roger
