Re: How did you find this forum?

I just moved here and am already panicking about Thanksgiving. I was doing a Google search for a grocery store in Zürich that sells American stuff such as cranberry sauce and stuffing mix, when I came across this website. I'm glad I found you!

The purpose of this thread is to collect a bit of information from you about how you found this site. If you've just arrived please post your introduction in a separate thread - replies on this thread should just tell us a little bit about how you found us.

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!)

Did you see a flyer somewhere? If so, where was it?

Were you told it about it by friends or collegues? Did someone send you a link to a thread, and you explored the forum a bit and decided that you liked it?

Maybe you got given the link from a relocation company or company information pack, if so - which company was it?

Word is spreading and the forum is growing rapidly - so I'm just trying to build up a picture of how people are finding our little community!
i googled pizza deliveries in zurich and came to this page... i found certain comments so hilarious that i forgot what i was looking for originally!
i'm still hungry but am still reading!

Re: How did you find this forum?

Before coming to Switzerland, I was searching Google for some info on a few admin things that I needed to know - and found my answers here.

Re: How did you find this forum?

I found you because I was trying to find a calendar with photos of Lac Léman for my daughter for Christmas! Both our children (well, she's just 21 and he's 17....) have done Sauvetage in Versoix since they were old enough, and Candice has decided that if anyone gives her a calendar this year, she wants one with photos of the lake! I've looked everywhere, to no avail so far. But I put "Calendar photos of Lac Léman" into Google and here I am! Could be interesting! More soon - have a great day, everyone!! (and if anyone knows how/where I could find a calendar, I'd REALLY appreciate it!! Lindy x

Re: How did you find this forum?

Hi Lindy,

I think I saw various cards and calendars with pictures of Geneva in Manor, the big department store south of Gare Cornavin (main train station). If I happen to be in the area, I'll double check.

Re: How did you find this forum?

I came across this forum while Googling for reporting on the chainsaw attack on Antonio da Costa. As already discussed, there is little on the web about the incident but the forum was very informative. Thanks.

Re: How did you find this forum?

Hey Folks,
I came across this site whilst checking out job opportunities in Switzerland. I spent a couple of years at a Sekundar Schule in St Gallen and would love to come back!
Am currently studying post-grad in Technical Communication, due to graduate November 2008. My German and dialekt are pretty rusty, but I'm hopeful it will all come back to me as soon as I immerse myself in the language again!!

Re: How did you find this forum?

I found it in Wikipedia. I think it was after writing "Zurich" or "Switzerland" in English. Congratulations to the Administrators for the forum, and to the members, that make it possible.

Re: How did you find this forum?

I did a search on Google for a slow cooker, and this forum showed up because a member was looking for a.......slow cooker! However, the joke is that I am a useless cook and virtually everything I try to prepare is a disaster! But this gives weight to my philosphy that nothing in this life happens by chance. Finding this site, was just meant to happen!

Re: How did you find this forum?

I was worried about all these freaks I kept running into in the city and wanted to find out how to deal with them, so I googled 'how to deal with freaks'...
