Re: How did you find this forum?

I think my husband found it by accident and he was so thrilled about it that I joined it as well.

Re: How did you find this forum?

Hello from Manila, Philippines!

What am I doing on this site?...I accidentally came across it
when I "googled" a company recruiting ESL teachers. The forum I
chanced upon gave me a world of information.

I am glad I found the link and discovered that the employment opportunity was a SCAM!

Re: How did you find this forum?

Found it on "the google".

Has been a wonderful help, and it looks like a great way to meet people, keep in touch and stay on top of things while living in CH.

Re: How did you find this forum?

My boyfriend is English and I'm thinking about suggesting to move to Switz for a while (ok ok, until he gets used to it and then we stay).

Tried to google for Brits in Switz and ended up here...

For example - did you find this site via a google search? If so, what were your search terms (we rank quite highly in google these days and it is interesting to see how many people find us using a variety of search terms!)
Like most others I found this forum through the power of the almighty Google. Not sure what search phrase I used, but it led me to ChrisW's excellent post on Travel Passes for Visitors. Since I found it very useful I looked around, and a few weeks later signed up.

Re: How did you find this forum?

I just typed in "living in Switzerland" in Google and read one of the threads. I came across this forum again when I searched "Geneva and German" a few days later.

I don't "have" the posters, you print them yourself here. (by the way, you are lucky I saw this thread, I can't keep up with all posts - in future for such requests, PM me)

Re: How did you find this forum?

I was looking on Google for information about satellite TV and stumbled on this forum, which has already answered many of the questions that were driving me crazy. I've never joined anything like this before and find it quite exciting.

Re: How did you find this forum?

My daughter married to a swiss man is going through a very messy separation. I googled re. Divorce Laws in Switzerland and came across 'Divorce Tips' I think it was listed under family matters...Very interesting reading!

Re: How did you find this forum?

I also found it via Google search, unfortunately with the search words "leaving Switzerland".

I'm portuguese, I've been here for 3 years and I'm now moving to England, so I was searching for tips and what I need to do (I'll post in the relevant sections).

I wish I'd found this out in the beginning, when I was feeling so lonely... oh well...
