Expat Brit moving to Geneva

Hello to everyone,

I've been browsing for a couple of months on this site and it looks like a great resource for info on Switzerland.

To introduce myself - A middle aged grumpy sod who has signed a contract to work for a company based in Geneva. Well balanced with chips on both shoulders. Married. Have lived overseas for well over a decade.

I'm greatly looking forward to moving to Geneva and lowering the tone of the place (not fish & chips and Irish bars, more joie de vivre).

Look forward to sharing my grumpiness with as many of you as possible.

Chin chin,

Oyibo

Thanks Gata,

I've been to Geneva on a few occasions and went on an 'orientation visit' paid for by the company, so have a bit of a feel for the place (Costa Brava it is not, thank God. Good Lord though - some of the prices).

But I suspect I'll be posting a whole host of questions on these fora in the coming weeks!

Regards
