South California to Lausanne

Hi everyone,
I am Swiss, from the German part. I married an American, we moved to Southern California 25 years ago, had two kids ages 7 and 11. We are now in the process of moving to the French part of Switzerland via internal transfer at the company where my husband works!
Definately excited but also nervous, especially about leaving that nice warm California climate! My French is at a low intermediate level, our two kids are more French fluent as they went to French immersion schools.
For sure it will be like moving as an expat to Switzerland, except that this is my own country where I grew up as a child until age 23. (I am now in my late 40's).
I'll most likely be posting some posts as we prepare our journey - I already posted some educational related question in the Education Forum.
Thank you for any insights!
SwissCaliGirl

Re: South California to Lausanne

Welcome to the forum and soon back home.

Search down in the Finance/Taxation section of the forum for the term "FATCA" and read some of the threads to get an idea of how difficult banking will be outside of the US for its citizens. Top right part of the Finance/Taxation page for search this forum and then type in "FATCA".

Re: South California to Lausanne

Welcome to the community, from another So-Cali-transplant.

Been living here for 3 years and haven't missed the warm weather yet, especially when there is gluhwein, Christmas markets, ski trips and plenty of friends willing to meet for snow fun!
Oh and also almost 3 times the number of vacation days helps.
