About to leave NYC fo Switzerland (Vaud/Geneva)

Hello everyone

We are a french family of 4 who have been living in NYC for the past 12 years. Looking forward to reunite with europe, we will be moving to the Geneva area in january 2020.
We have 1 job waiting for us in Nyon, and now are looking for our new nest - and hopefully we will find the 2nd job soon, and not too far from Nyon (we still hesitate between Geneva and Lausanne)

Looking fowrard to moving to beautiful Switzerland and start our new life here, make friends, etc.

We will be happy to make american friends - and friends from everywhere in the world, really!

I'd avoid either of them, TBH, unless you particularly like all the disadvantages
of a big city without any of the real benefits. Better off to find somewhere in the Nyon/la Cote area itself, for the opposite effect, with either city just a short train ride or drive away and much nicer living environment.

Rider: I've not lived in either city, but visited the area several times recently, on which I base this opinion; also, I don't like cities anyway.
