Re: Recollections of first days in Switzerland - share your experiences

October 22, 1999.

Drove up(/down?) from Calais in a rented Renault Espace filled to the may with all my worldly posessions and my girlfriend of some 4 months keeping me company.

Border guard: "what's all this in your car"
Me: "moving to CH for a new job"
BG: "but you need valuation papers for moving all this...! Anything new?"
Me: ""*
BG: "OK, go through..."

Some 13 years later, girlfriend is now wife, with kids and mortgage.

*thinking - if only there was an English-speaking forum on which to get experiences... Some of us had to learn and do it all on our own.
