Houstonian/Colombian moving to Geneva in two weeks!!

So it's finally official. I've signed the job contract, reserved the flight and will be living in Geneva in two weeks all by myself! . This has been a long and drawn out process but after about five months of going back and forth, my work permit is finally ready and everything seems to be going according to plan. I have been part of this forum for a while now but I did not want to introduce myself until I knew for sure that it was going to happen. I am a 27 year old Houstonian/Colombian. Well my entire family is from the beautiful country of Colombia and I was raised here in Houston all my life. I am very friendly and outgoing and I love meeting new people. I enjoy many different activities including outdoor sports, photography, traveling, Art, music and of course DANCE. I've danced with a Colombian Folkloric company here in Houston for the past 12 years off and on. Once I arrive in Geneva I will be searching for a dance company to join. I love all sorts of dance including Salsa, African, hip hop and many more!
I will be so happy to finally get settled into life in Geneva. I look forward in meeting different people at EF events. I will be staying in a hotel for the first 2 weeks while I find my apartment or room. I have realized that you all are right and it is turning out to me a nightmare doing so. Does anyone know of a good agency in Geneva that could help me locate a room or apartment? I'll continue searching online until I arrive but I have already encountered a number of offers that most likely are SCAMS! Yikes!
Anyways I just wanted to officially introduce myself and say Howdy/Hola to everyone

Re: Houstonian/Colombian moving to Geneva in two weeks!!

Hello Sandra, welcome to Switzerland and the EF!

I'm sorry, I wish I knew more about Geneva, alas, living in Basel is quite different, in more ways than just the local language.

There are quite a few forum members who live in that general area though (Lausanne, Vaud, Vevey, La Cote, so forth), hopefully one of them can give you some pointers.

Good luck with your move and with finding a place to live!
