Re: newcomer

Welcome to the forum. Do I detect a hint of Irishness in that name?

Re: newcomer

British through and through. Been in Switzerland for nearly 4 months now and really loving it.
We did live in Co. Wicklow for 9 years though - hence the Irish interest. Bet you can't guess which International computer company I worked for!!

Can't believe you guessed so quickly!! Yep. Got it in one!

I see lots of positives to life in Switzerland, and I am completely bowled over by the beauty of the countryside. I think if you have a positive attitude you can be happy anywhere, but if you spend your time finding fault, you will be unhappy.

Re: newcomer

Hi, thanks for your welcome. Yes Dublin is beautiful but I find it has grown too big and is not the same place I used to know.
