i came here with an electric guitar, desktop computer (no laptops back then), and a motorcycle.

(though my swiss employer did arrange a room with some family for me to live in while i searched for an apartment)

Actually, while I do have a Jaguar (1964) like the one in the photo, I didn't bring that over until a couple years later (came here with my '61 Les Paul).

Also, the bike was different, I brought over the LeMans I had bought new the year before (and still ride).

Thanks for asking!
No advertisement, sorry to disappoint lilith and Longbyt but the only point that I am trying to make here is that preparation is key and expat should not hesitate to ask for more support to their company for their spouse:
Direct contact person at the local company for the spouse, local career support, relocation company, social integration effort, more complete information on the region ( not only the big city COLA rate!).
Better ask for that kind of support before departure and even before contract negotiation is completed.
Maybe your post will become clear after my 3 espresso... Nope, I'm still can see the point of this thread, but I am wired now.

It's also a very good idea not to leave home in the morning without your trousers...

Ah, I understand.. The link to another expat organisation in your profile just slipped in by itself.

This isn't really an introduction is it?
nope, it is an advert, just look at her profile and the Homepage.

What a great way to build one's business, start a thread about nothing.

It's time to let this thread sink to the bottom.

Good night.
