I have read many of the threads on negative views on Swiss this or that. ...
So all in all, I find this a great country, with people that are just like most place, you just have to understand their culture.
Me too. Switzerland is a wonderful place to live - the best place I've ever lived, that's for sure (although I do pine for Greece too).

Looking at the experiences of some people on the forum, though, I'd say there's a fair amount of luck involved. Luck, and living outside the main expat areas where there might be a little less resentment towards "yet another dumb foreigner".

It's nice to land on one's feet so easily, though, isn't it?

Bulle- the lightest town in CH. Come on to be so rude about our Fribourgeois friends Wolli and Anthony- very pretty area for sure, Charmey, The Jaunpass, Gruyères- and Bulle is quite a nice little town.

Well, my girlfriend beats that, 48 (but she was born here).

Best was, my friend's grandfather was born in the US (to TI parents), then they moved back here when he was 1. Last time I saw him was at his 96th b-day party, but he only made it to 99.

Re: Undo Swiss ranting and raving

I came here after moving from NYC to be with my fiancee with which I will marry in 2 weeks in Bali. No one forced me to come here. Only my free will and love.

I'm curious. If I may ask, why did you decide to go to Switzerland in the first place? Just to try something new? Got a job there? Tax reasons? Or something else?
