Just moved to Geneva

Arrived Last week from Glasgow.. With my daughter (1 year old) and my wife.. we are living in chatelaine, trying to get used to the culture and lifestyle.. and the incredible work ethic! (never seen people stay in a office so late!)

Anyway I thought rather than just use the site as a reference I would say hello!

Re: Just moved to Geneva

Welcome to the Forum.

'They' have to stay at the office so late to do the work they should have been doing while they were on EF in the day-time.
You should hear the screams from the 'workers' when this site is down for five minutes.

Hope you are settling in well and finding your way around OK

Re: Just moved to Geneva

Have great memories of living in Geneva.

It is not the working late that surprises me but the early start!!
I know some who start work at 5am in the office

Spot on Smacker ! I'm amazed to see the office buildings around my flat already with the lights on and people at work at 6 am.

Geneva's lots of fun Cameron, loads of people speak English and it's quite easy to get by.
Welcome to EF

Do check out the International Women's club for your wife, if she's a stay a home mom, she might find some English speaking toddler groups around GVA.

Re: Just moved to Geneva

Hi and welcome!

London's even worse, that's what I'm always reminding my husband of. The Geneva region is really nice, though, and all the peaks are just a short drive away. Enjoy your time here!
