Ohio Buckeye living in Fechy

Hi all,

My husband and I recently moved from Ohio in the US to the beautiful village of Fechy. He has taken a position at a company in Etoy for two to three years. We have two college-aged children...one at BGSU and one at the University of Cincinnati. We also have two Jack Russell Terriers that we brought from Ohio. What an experience! Would love to meet other transplanted Americans in our area. Maybe somone has advice on dog kennels for our doggies to go when we travel. What I saw in December on a preview trip was nothing like the US. GO BUCKEYES, FALCONS AND BEARCATS!

Regards.....Shotzie804

Go Aggies, Cowboys, Mavericks, and Stars!

Welcome to Switzerland anyway despite the bad taste
in sports teams. Hopefully, you will enjoy your time here.

Re: Ohio Buckeye living in Fechy

Welcome to Switzerland, Shotzie!

We just moved back to CH after spending four years in a wonderful small town near Cleveland. Ohio winters really make the Swiss ones look mild...even this one! And I'm still trying to readjust to the mountain roads.

Sorry, even though I lived in Ohio, I can't join in your "Go x,w,z teams" because I have kids at other colleges.

i'm so happy that there are Clevelanders in Switzerland! It makes the move a little less intimidating!
