From Boston to Basel via Spain

Hi Everyone!
I just moved to Basel recently after living in Spain for two years. I am originally from Boston. A big sports fan... american football, soccer, baseball, etc. I also brew my own beer, enjoy concerts, cooking, traveling etc. I really had a great experience during my two years living abroad in Spain. I am looking forward to getting to know some new people, enjoying Switzerland and traveling around the area.

I am starting my permanent flat search here in Basel so if anyone has any tips please do let me know. Also I am always up for grabbing a beer and getting any advice you may have for a newbie.

Look forward to meeting you all.

-Mike

Re: From Boston to Basel via Spain

Hey Mike, welcome to Basel! I am also from Boston and have been in Basel just over
There are a lot of websites for finding a flat but i have found my apartments via EF or word of mouth. If you are working for a big company many have internal message boards where you can advertise.

Send me a PM if you have any questions about Basel or wanna go for a pint sometime, would be great to know some other peeps from Boston in Basel!
