Just arrived..well actually a month ago :-) ..in basel

Hello everyone..

I (and my small family) have recently relocated to Switzerland (Basel) from Denmark on account of my husbands new job. I am originally from India.

I like Basel and of course keep comparing it to Copenhagen and Delhi Mumbai..no further comments on this now.

I like this forum..helpful and informative..still it took me almost a month to start writing myself..probably because now staying at home is now getting too much..

Till next time...cheers :-)

Thanks for the messages...and yes my initial impression of basel was it looked like Delhi Bombay..concrete buildings and narrow roads less greenery. (compared to copenhagen). I understand it will change in spring..coming very soon...

I am originally from Delhi and yes hometowns never have any match :-)

Hello and welcome to Basel, and to the English Forum!

Yes, Basel does become quite green as it heads into Spring. Witch Hazel should be blooming "soon" actually, I think before the end of February... it looks like long sticks with lots of yellow blooms. Also, I was surprised by how much Magnolia grows here, while they are not the luscious tall trees with humongous blooms and leaves that I was accustomed to in Florida and Georgia, they are beautiful - and start blooming in March if I remember right - all the same.

If staying home is getting to be a bit much, check out the Social section of the Events down a bit lower in the forum to see if there is anything that interests you coming up. Also, Centrepoint has been mentioned quite a few times as a touching off place for meeting other English speaking folks in Basel. I believe some of the forum members (or their spouses) are members also at Centrepoint and a few of us also belong to a variety of other expat groups or gatherings.

Hope to see you around some time!

Welcome to little Basel ... it is a village compared to Delhi or Mumbai. We are from India too, and like it here
All the best!
