San Franciscan Possibly Moving to Geneva

Hi all -

I'm currently interviewing for a job in Geneva, and have been voraciously reading the threads here to educate myself on what life there is like. It's always been a bit of a fantasy of mine to work and live in Europe, so while scary, it's also a bit of a dream come true.

I'm a 44 single, gay Chinese-American man. I've lived in California my whole life so this would be my first place living someplace with an actual winter.

If I get this job, I'm sure my questions will start flowing but for now, I'm just lurking.

Re: San Franciscan Possibly Moving to Geneva

Good luck! My husband and I have been here 8 weeks, and so far so good. Geneva is a lovely place, although we are both finding the French language a bit of a hurdle. I know everyone says that all Swiss speak English, especially in Geneva, but that has not been our experience. If you get the job, start learning French ASAP
