Hello from Canada

Hi there,

We live in Victoria, British Columbia and will be moving to Switzerland in September for sabbatical. My husband is a mechanical engineering professor and I am a public school teacher (grade six) . We have two daughters; one will be almost 3 years old when we move and the other six months. We're not exactly sure where we would like to live (or where we might find a furnished apartment), but we're looking at Lausanne, Yverdon or somewhere in between the two.

This seems like a well-used and useful forum - we've learned a lot already! We look forward to more help with specific questions as we figure out our move in the next few months.

Canucks

Oi... Less of that, Mr Breakfast. We're all supposed to play nice here, remember...


Welcome to the Forum, Canucks... Good luck with the move.
