Re: How did you find this forum?

I was googling Swiss car regulations and hit a thread in the forum. Wonderful, suddenly not alone trying to fathom the Swiss ways.

Best wishes

Re: How did you find this forum?

I found this forum looking for a sublet in or near Lausanne as my first place to stay when I relocate to Lausanne the week of June 23 (haven't found a sublet yet, but hope springs eternal...)

I think I was looking on Google.

Well, I am a 53 (and a half!) year old private banker relocating from Miami to Lausanne for a change of pace. American, raised in Mexico, speak Spanish, French and Portuguese quite well. First traveled to Switzerland in 1972 and have been back several times over the years; just can't shake this irrational desire to live and work there. Married to Gioconda, an Ecuadorean I met at Citibank New York in 1981... not sure she's as enthusiastic about leaving Miami for Lausanne as I...

I love travel, cooking, eating, wine, sailing, hiking, biking, even skiing!

I hope I can be an interesting contributor to your community.

All the best,
Thompson Davis (786)303-3397

Re: How did you find this forum?

Google I think on pre-move, there are an amazing amount of folk happy to pass on knowledge and experience on here. I know I've had plenty of advice that has saved me a bunch of time, and it's made the move easier as a result

Re: How did you find this forum?

I followed a link from a thread at vBulletin.org. There was a note there that the owner of this site had recently passed away. He was the author of a modification for vBulletin software that made it easier to ban spammers from forums like these, and I was there looking for updates to his code. I have read through the memorial thread, and he seems to have been quite an extraordinary person.
