Another Newbie

Hello everyone
I have recently moved with husband and 4.5 year old son to Baselland from Sligo, Ireland. Enjoying the lovely weather at the moment as we didn't get so much sunshine back in Sligo.
Looking forward to contributing to this community.

Cheers
Malteser

Welcome You'll love Switzerland, it's a nice country to live in. Been here almost two years (from Chile) and once I learned the language, it seems all the doors opened
cheers!!!

Welcome to Switzerland!

I am glad you like the weather. I guess it's a matter of perspective... Maybe I should spend some time in Ireland to learn to appreciate Swiss "summer"

Re: Another Newbie

Welcome to Baselland!! Me and my family (hubby and three boys) have been living here for a year now and we're loving it. Can't say I've got used to this sort of weather yet - not quite what we used to get in England!

Hope you settle in quickly and feel free to ask if you have any questions about life in Baselland.

Re: Another Newbie

Thanks for your comments
We are slowly settling in, especially as we have put our son in the Swiss local school. We really want to be part of the local community over here and what better way to start?! We do need to learn the language though otherwise our progress is going to be hard and really slow )
In the meantime looking forward to meet up some english-speaking expats who like us have decided to make Switzerland our home for the next few years.
