Re: Moving from England to Switzerland

Word of advice, although shopping in cheap shops like ALDI may be tempting dont, the swiss locals will definetly look down on you. Also watch out for insurance scams, they'll offer you insurance over everything if your gonna get insurance make sure you got the cheapest/best offer.
Good luck moving here, its not easy

Re: Moving from England to Switzerland

Who gives a flying flip about getting 'looked down on' for shopping for more reasonable food prices? Hell, I just spent about 140CHF for 5 pizzas (small ~10inch) and some water/soda at a restaurant. Perhaps I should have ordered a single malt to soften the blow of the bill. I mean, seriously, with the price of food around here, it seems rather absurd to worry about price snobbery.

Someone who's eighteen and looking to start a conversation with English speaking people, I'd guess...

Oh, hell, does that mean I'm entering into Cougar territory?! Er, or, well, chatting up the local teenagers? I suppose I should stock up my cooler with cheap, drinkable alternatives to the Swiss lager whose name I have blotted from memory so that they can think of me as a penny pinching spinster as I yell at the kids to get off my damn lawn.

I might add that no Swiss would look down their nose at my single malt purchasing habits. I might not want to spend 35chf for a kg of chicken, but I'll happily spend a goodly amount on my favourite Islay malt.
