Singaporean in the Netherlands moving to Geneva

Hallo! 你好! Hello! Bonjour! Buongiorno! Grüetzi!

Hi Everyone,

I will be moving with my family (Dutchie hubbie) and 6.5 months old baby to Geneva in about 7 weeks. It's both exciting and frightening considering the "big" move with a small baby.

Hope to meet some great people either in-person or in the forum.

Carolyn T

Re: Singaporean in the Netherlands moving to Geneva

Hi db,

Sounds like a good idea. When are you moving to Geneva? Are you planning to live in the city itself?

We are leaving the sunny isle in about 3 weeks and will be living just outside of Nyon. Not looking forward to unpacking! The packing here was no fun...

Have you found a place to stay yet?

Good luck with your move (esp with baby in tow)!

Re: Singaporean in the Netherlands moving to Geneva

Wow, 3 weeks. Nope, and starting to panic too :P I hope that the relocation people at my husband company would step up a bit.

I do look forward to the new challenges but definitely not the issues related to them. (i.e. packing, renting out our current place, quitting my job, etc etc)

How did you guys find the new place?

Re: Singaporean in the Netherlands moving to Geneva

We were in Geneva in early June for a recce trip. We called up a few realtors and did alot of homework on the net. You can try:
immostreet.ch
homegate.ch
Their sites are also available in English.

Since then it has been a whirlwind of work regarding the move. Now that the container is on a ship, we have a few weeks of peace and quiet until the unpacking!

I know what you mean about stepping it up. Coming from Singapore, I'm just not used to the relaxed pace.... Guess I will just have to learn to .... relax!
