Fairly new to Switzerland

Hi all,

Have recently moved out to Bach (from UK) with my 3 children to join my husband who's been here for the last year. Not working at the moment and with the children in school am keen to meet other English speaking Mums - any suggestions?

Have found the forum really useful although just looked at the thread about snakes in the garden and wish I hadn't!

Thanks

Welcome to the EF. I'm pretty sure you will find social groups tailored to your needs and interests. There are some trailing spouses or home stayed mums meetup social events. Please check in calendar above.

Ah this snake thread is just a snapshot of posting triggered by folly and boredom of some members. There are more bizarre ones to be found as well. In general avoid political and religious threads, do not ask questions about things like possibility of surviving on salaries over 120k, availability of brown sugar threads and so on and do forth - you catch my drift. The last and not the least advice, it won't be perceived with optimism but rather pinch of salt, if you ask questions before doing your own search it is called HTFU

Enjoy this lovely community and use search engine to find answers to your questions

Re: Fairly new to Switzerland

Hello and Welcome!!

I moved to Zurich with my two children due to my husbands employment, last November. I have joined a Meet Up group called, Coffee, Cocktails and Culture. Its really friendly and has just started up, so most women are all in the same boat. You just have to join and RSVP the events you want to go too. Hope you have managed to settle in ok and are enjoying the sunshine!!

Bye Claire

Re: Fairly new to Switzerland

Welcome to the forum!

I understand that the village of Bach is located in Canton Schwyz, in which case you would be well advised to wear snake boots when walking outside. This canton is home to the Schwyzer Knöchelfresser, a terrifying serpent which hides in the bushes and springs out upon unwitting passers-by, locking its frothing jaws upon their ankles, which it devours with hideous abandon, before wriggling off to digest its bony meal, leaving its poor victim to shuffle home sans-pied. Next time you catch a bus, have a look around at the feet of your fellow passengers. They'll either be wearing boots, or well disguised wooden prosthetic hooves.

Apart from that, Schwyz is a lovely canton. I'm sure you'll have a lovely time there.
