Moving from New Zealand to Basel

I've been lurking here for the last month and wanted to post an introduction at last. We are moving to Basel from Wellington, NZ for a couple of years. We are really excited about the move but staring at an endless list of jobs at both ends, so it's been great reading all the tips on here. Thanks everyone!

My husband's coming over in 6 weeks, and will come home to collect me and our 2 kids (5 1/2 and nearly 3) at the end of the year. I won't be working while we're in Basel but am looking forward to improving my rather rusty German and exploring Switzerland and beyond.

Re: Moving from New Zealand to Basel

Thanks for the warm welcomes - I will definitely be keen for some coffees once we arrive in Basel. I'll have a rather noisy 3 year old in tow though...
