New in Geneva

Hello,

I/we recently relocated to Geneva from Manchester U.K. due to a promotion opportunity for my partner.
I am a fully qualified English electrician, was lead guitarist in a rock/pop/indie covers band until late last year, so i may be checking out the band scene/availability once we're settled & in permanent accommodation. I'm not working at present so my guitar, X-box & mountain bike will be getting more action than they're used to,
Look forward to chatting to all of you, right now I'm off to poke around the forum to see if I can find any info on the electrical regulations over here. , although I'm beginning to think it would be easier to join the freemasons

Thanks
Wayne

Re: New in Geneva

Sounds great,
Unfortunately (i guess that's the wrong choice of word!) we are spending the day with the relocation company, no doubt looking at more apartments that are either too small, in the wrong location or we cant afford, or possibly all of the above , I feel like Goldilocks.
I will defo look forward to the next one though.
