New Winnipegger (Canadian) in Bern

Good morning.

I've just arrived in Bern for a three-year IT position with the Universal Postal Union. I've been using this site as a resource to get set up here, so I just wanted to say thank you for the great help that you all have been.

John

Welcome to the CH.

My husband and I are Canadians living in Neuchatel...I grew up in Regina, he grew up in Calgary. My husband will also be working in Bern starting Monday. If you ever want/need some friendly faces, send us a PM!

All the best!

Thank you for all of the responses.

And yes, as a Canadian looking at the bears here, I have trouble not telling people that they are much bigger back at home.
