From The Netherlands to Basel

Hello All,

I am a Peruvian girl who has been living for 6 years in the Netherlands, married to a Dutch guy and moving to Switzerland .
We are really looking forward to our new home and are very excited about how things are going to work out.
The main reason for our move is that I got a great opportunity for my carreer from a big company located in Basel, my hubby is so supportive of me that we decided to give it a try. I have been in Basel twice already and it was great to actually meet other spanish speaking people that were super nice and welcoming. Of course, in this forum we expect to meet English and Dutch speaking people as well.

Thanks for reading and I am sure I'll be posting some other thread soon as well

Take care!

Angela

PS: Moving date is 3rd of July...summertime hooray!!!!

Hi Angela,

Welcome to the Forum and to Basel.

I noticed in your intro that it is for your career that you are moving here. Will this leave your husband at a loose end, for a time at least?

If so there's a group of guys (from all over the world) whose new role is that of "Hausmann".

They meet up for lunch every Wednesday at Café Zic-Zac, from about 12h15. Some bring their children and/or dogs along, too.

It's easy to get to by taking the Tram 6 or Bus 43/36 to the Morgartenring stop.

He would be made very welcome.

Best of luck with your Summer move!

Re: From The Netherlands to Basel

Hi Angela,
I'm also Dutch and currently living in Basel 'till november. I'll stick to English though, so that the other forum members can understand my reply. ;-)

Anyways, if you like to meet up in Basel, just send me a message. :-)
And good luck with moving to Switzerland!

Cheers Inge

Welcome to the forum and good luck with your move!

Also, be sure to checkout Centrepoint upon arrival, they are really helpful when you come here from abroad.
