This place is brilliant!!!

Hi everyone!

I just started my job on Monday and boy am i happy, the job is great, not too stressfull compared to what I was doing (I've changed from private practice to in house), my colleagues are great...we have already been out and about a couple of evenings mostly with locals, I've already made a few acquaintances out of work, I've been hiking up the mounains in the forest, seen panoramic vies of the lakes and Alps, I've partied all night....not bad considering I only arrived last Friday!

Who said that Switzerland was boring!!!

The quality of life is exceptional, I really think I'm going to stay here for a long time...just need a Swiss girlfirend

I thought I'd post these comments for people who are considering coming here, its simply great!

Cheers!

JT

When does the honeymoon period end?
The first confrontation in the laundry room?
The first unsuccessful search for brown sugar (or molasses, or baking powder, or ...)?
The first attempt to get a Swiss girlfriend?

OTOH, since the OP is a hiker, the honeymoon may last forever ... my first trip to Switzerland was in 1947. The Swiss mountains are simply magnificent!

Re: This place is brilliant!!!

Hi JT,
A nice positive introduction - good to see you have not just hit the ground running - but you`re already sprinting.
You are right - Switzerland is anything but boring.
My biggest headache on my days off - is what to do . . . there is so much to choose from!
Don`t forget to check out the EF events page - that is a great way to meet people.
See you around some time maybe.
Cheers,
Basher

Life, and Switzerland, is what you make it, and it sounds like your attitude is spot on.

You will never run out of things to do and places to marvel at. Enjoy!

Re: This place is brilliant!!!

You're right. Switzerland is a brilliant place to be! I have to spend 1 week holiday outside Switzerland (seaside, family vote!) and I don't really want to go, there is so much to explore here and I don't think I will ever tire of the mountains, they are so spectacular, especially when there is a big thunderstorm like last night!

Make the most of it and remember to respect its people and to give back to the community a little of what it gives you!

Re: This place is brilliant!!!

It's like mountain hiking - it can sometimes be a struggle to get to the summit, but once there the views are amazing .... but then you have to go down, and attempt the next one.
