I've arrived!

Good Morning Switzerland!

I've arrived at last after months of planning and hanging out on this forum collecting hints & tips in preparation of my move. But despite all that I still have a long list to get through.

I'm staying with a good friend a colleague for a few days then move into a serviced apartment on Thursday in Schaffhausen.

I left behind the rain and woke up to beautiful Swiss sunshine.

See you soon!

Hi Swiss Astrid, I think on another post you told me there were new apartments being built in Beringen. I've just seen some on Homegate so will investigate more. It looks like there's a bus straight to my office so nice and convenient. Do you live in Beringen? If so, what's it like there?

Yes we do, been here 2 months now. We like it. We wanted to live in a small town and not be surrounded by expats as we see them everyday at school
Although we did meet a British couple and their young son who live close and the Dutch owner of the local fitness club http://www.vitalis-sh.ch/ .

I am sure for the nightlife you need to be in Schaffhausen but there it the bus and trainstation here, everything is in walking distance! Good luck househunting!

Welcome to Switzerland! Let me know if your local Geminde is as friendly as mine was to me when you go and register.

By the way, it would also be a great time to update your location on the forums.
