New to Aubonne

Well, I was encouraged to introduce myself with this really nice email from this forum, so I thought I had better! I am new to Switzerland, having been here about two weeks now, just settled into a nice little flat in Aubonne and am loving it so far. I moved from Granville, OH (near Columbus) where my wife and two children continue to live until next year at this time, we hope! I am a wildlife biologist by training and work for the International Union for the Conservation of Nature in Gland.

I look forward to the possibility to meet some of you and email with others as the opportunity arises.

Cheers,
Dennis

To the EF. It is good that you are settling in and are enjoying your new life in your new appt.
Lots of really good information on here. I do not know Aubonne well as I have only been there to go to IKEA

Re: New to Aubonne

Hi Dennis,
Welcome to beautiful CH. If you like hiking or biking and are looking for new friends, drop me an email. I live in Vevey which is close to Montreux and some 40 minutes away from Aubone. I do long walks with my dog and my husband is in a cycling club. My daugter (13) does mostly Nintendo DS and PS II

--I.

Hey Thanks - I'll try to catch up some time - your dughter sounds like my two sons want to be - they are sure they are the last two children in the civilized world without a PlayStation or WII!

Cheers,
dennis
