Global Family Moving from The Hague to Basel/French Border

Hi all! My DH has just started a new contract in Basel (Allschwil) and the rest of the family will join him end of June. I have so many questions to ask (where to live, opinions etc) but I'll post them in the relevant threads.

I'm a mixed Singaporean mummy of 3 kids (DD1, 11 in October, DD2, 5 in August and DS, 1 y.o in July). My DH is Danish who have spent more than half his life living outside of Denmark. I left home at 17 and together, we've clocked up quite a trail of expat experience. Now, 3.5 yrs in NL, before that 4 yrs in Surrey, UK, it's time for another move. DD2 is barely 5 and she would have experienced her 4th home by this summer!

We are quite sold on the idea of being a frontalier (?) and would be keen to get in touch with others in our shoes, especially if you have kids our ages.

I'm also an entrepreneur and a writer and loves my social life (ok I love cooking and feeding people!). If you also need input about Third Culture Kids, mixed marriages, expat life etc, get in touch! Looking forward for friendly replies!


Cheers!

Re: Global Family Moving from The Hague to Basel/French Border

Hello and welcome to the EF! There are a bunch of frontaliers here, hope you settle down easy and relocation is smooth. Check out our search function, or, if you have a question that hasn't been answered already, ask away.

Cooking and feeding people is a fine fine interest!

Cheers, MC.
