From England to Neuchatel

Hi All,

I will move to Neuchatel in November 2011 for a new job! Very exciting but at the same time quite scared to be moving to another country. I hope that the job will turn out great so that I don't have to go back to England right away.
This forum is really great as it provides lots of information and people are very helpful so thanks for that!

Re: From England to Neuchatel

Hey and welcome. But what is going on in Neuchatel all of a sudden- arriving in droves. Is Neuchatel the new Zurich or Geneva?

Well taxes for companies have recently changed - 24% in Geneva, now 15% in Neuchatel - so there will be more I suppose.

See you soon, and ask away if you need help or support.

Haven't you heard about the new British colony established in the canton Crown Dependency recently renamed 'New Newcastle'?

It's going to be lovely: like Canada, but less smug; like Australia, but less drunk; like New Zealand, but less prone to inappropriate friendliness to sheep.

I wonder if they'll have decent pork scratchings there, though?

We had them when I was a kid - and it was speciality to make savoury tarts with them - droooooling just to think of it. Tarte aux greubons, yum.

Re: From England to Neuchatel

Thanks for the welcome everyone! Maybe if there is lots of us Neuchatelees, we should host a future meet up (with pork scratchings of course!). Actually being originally from the Philippines, we do a mean full roasted pig!

Re: From England to Neuchatel

Hello and welcome! We will definitely have to arrange a meet-up (in fact, we should arrange one this month too). Hope the move goes well.

Got visitors arriving from the US Friday - will get in touch to have a chat about what we can sort out for an outing mid October. Put your thinking hats on all.

Re: From England to Neuchatel

@Odile: I don’t know if I could roast a whole wild boar by myself… but I will think of a smaller dish that is manageable. I’m from the land of the fens (Ely). I will be start working on 14th Nov so I will be in Neuchatel a week before that to look for a place. Hopefully I could find a room to rent somewhere walking distance to the train station. If you guys know anyone with a spare room to rent, please let me know, I would be really grateful. I have searched the websites suggested in this forum but they are in German/French and most of them are apartments rather than rooms. @Kamarate, yeah hope the move would be good! Would be really nice to meet my new neighbours soon!

Re: From England to Neuchatel

Used to take a lot of my visitors to Ely - such an amazing place, that huge Cathedral and its magnificent lantern, for such a small town, wow. We lived in East Leics, so not too far away.

Shame I live just too far away to offer you a room whilst you are looking. Maybe someone here could rent you a room just for the first few weeks?

Re: From England to Neuchatel

Welcome to Neuchâtel. I think you'll like it here.

Like Odile we're too far away to offer you a room for a while but I'll ask my husband to look on the company site. You could try the university too, sometimes they advertise flat shares.

Hi Belgianmum. Thanks for the leads… I had a look at the university site and I have seen some flatshares so fingers crossed I will get to hear from the people I have contacted. @Dayo: How come you know kare kare? Have you found a place yet and how long did you look for one? I have seen your other post - good luck on your first day! wish me this next month ok?
