I am new in this forum and I am Swiss

Hi to all
Hope you enjoyed a very nice summer in Switzerland. I am new in this forum and would like to introduce myself a little bit. I am Swiss and working for more than 16 years for an international company. That is the reason why I speak a lot in English during a day.
I have 2 children (9 and 11) and I am writing novels. I love cooking and I have a dog and a cat. I am a fan of Black Sails like watching films...etc.
I like chatting with people all over the world and therefore I thought to registre here. Maybe there will be some activities we can do together, or where I can help you to feel you home.
If I forgot something important, please let me know.

And now, hopefully, I get contact in your community.
Have a nice day.
Bella

Welcome to the forum. It's always good to get a "Swiss" view of things in this expat world...

You google your pseudonym Bella Blingston, your website comes up. I am glad to see my German is still up to par

I hope we are talking Anais Nin rather than umpteenth shades of dubious colors. God knows there is too much crap out there that calls itself erotic literature, and not enough good literature that happens to be...erotic. Good luck!

Re: I am new in this forum and I am Swiss

Hi Bella and welcome- from another Swiss.

As a new Swiss member of EF, do you have an opinion (or 100) about Swiss men

Re: I am new in this forum and I am Swiss

@Odile: Swiss men... Mountain men... bankers.... farmers....what would you like to hear from me??? When it is the right one... it doens't matter what nationality he has.

@BrokerTov: Good to hear that your German is still up and running...hihi... no, I am not talking in hundreds of different shades of a non-colored sheet. But if you are interested, have a look and read... tell me what do you think...
But I am not only writing erotic novel... there is another novel coming up on my plate and it is more an adventure novel. That novel is a heart thing.

@Captain Greybeard: What kind of a Captain are you? Pirate?

Re: I am new in this forum and I am Swiss

LOL - it is just because another new Swiss (male) EF member has joined just to spend a whole page complaining about how dire Swiss women are - so

I agree with you btw- I did choose a British one though
