Finally made it!

It's been a few weeks since I've checked in here, but I've been so busy packing, saying farewell, etc. I'm glad I've finally got here though, especially after the 26 hour, two stopover trip!

So, Geneva is beautiful - hello, winter? - and I can't wait to explore. But with it comes the questions...

Right, where's that place I need to register again? I'll do that right after I finish my blog...

Welcome to Switzerland! Enjoy your time here ... do you have some time before you have to get to work? If so, walk around your local area a few hours each day, to locate your essential local services!

So its your fault!
Geneva was warm yesterday and thats not normal. Todays temperature is more appropriate for this season. Shame you missed the 50cm snow in a day two weeks ago

Welcome!

Re: Finally made it!

Thanks guys!

I'm kind of glad of the relatively warm weather to be honest - coming from +35C heat to more 'normal' winter temps would've been too much of a shock. Though I do say bring on some snow!

I start work tomorrow, but I have had a few days of exploring Geneve - today, which was absolutely miserable, I spent walking quite kms. I did find relief in the Museé de arte e histoire, which was interesting. Lots more exploring to come as I've only just stumbled across the Old Town!

Oh I do need to register, but since I figured that I would need my permit first, I think I'll see what work says tomorrow!

Cheers

Jo
