The Swiss are really Friendly people love it here

We live in a complex of 4 villas since moving into my house 3 weeks ago,each of our Swiss neighbors has come over an introduced themselves.

Once they realize we are Australian they treated us like long lost cousins.

All have invited us for drinks and they even love the fact we are Vegans and ask many interesting questions.

Most make the effort to address me in English, what great people what a super country.

Today our nearest neighbor has offered to look after our cats free of charge when we are away, so happy we moved here

After all I read on this forum,I am glad we are in a good part of Switzerland.

I think that pretty much every part of switzerland is "the good part."

If you are good neighbors, they will be too.

yes, this is true & when I see threads like- The Swiss are so cold.

This kind of pisses me off as we are in their country and should make the effort to show them our friendly side.

Being from an Aussie background I only use my first name when I introduce myself this is soon followed by them giving me their first name

Re: The Swiss are really Friendly people love it here

I too think Swiss people are great. If I didnt like them, I would go back where I came from. Whenever I have needed help, my Swiss friends have always stepped up to the plate.

In fact, I like them so much I am thinking of becoming Swiss.

Re: The Swiss are really Friendly people love it here

I like the Swiss too. If you make a friend with a Swiss person, they are a really good friend.

But I have had more luck with people outside of Zurich, personally.

Zurichers are considered a little cold, even to other Swiss.

Zuri, Schnurri they say...
