Re: why live in switzerland?

okay, before this thread closes and after 161 replies. even if i don't know what awaits for me there and despite what people complain about CH, i came down to this conclusion:
living in switzerland is worth the try.

so i work on finding a job and hopefully i see all of you personally in CH!

Re: why live in switzerland?

Swiss women are often very, very attractive.

Unfortunately, some of them are a little bit crazy.

There are very good reasons for the existence of Rule 1.

Re: why live in switzerland?

I've just been to Tim Hortons for the first time--they are on a tear in my home state with new stores. It was an amazing, magical experience. Sadly, I am not joking.

And Tim Hortons isnt third rate (only when compared to Dunkin Donuts which Switzerland doesnt possess.)

Re: why live in switzerland?

I've been here a year and it has been a great place to live - especially if you like being outdoors hiking or running. It was a lot of work to get set up here, but VERY worth it! Especially with a decent job - friends will follow! Good luck!

Re: why live in switzerland?

1) At Spruengli, having a chocolate milk in a cooled glass

2) World ski resorts access w.o. need for car, and nice hotels for 56
Franken even in Zermatt.

3) A red light district w.o. fear of crime, with a home-like atmosphere

4) Precisely running public transit

5) Fondue-bread and calf-sausage (Kalbswurst) on the street

6) Rivella and rubharb slices

7) Rapid transit to Germany, Italy and France

8) In the summer, mountain lakes so blue you swear they added colorant.
