There will be a fair amount.

50" Panasonic Plasma TV
42" Panasonic PLasma TV
2 Xbox Slims plus games
Aircon Unit
Sky HD setup
Mahogany Dining table and four chairs
Microwave, Canon printer, George Forman Grill, Bedroom clothes cabinets, lawnmower, hedgetrimmer, Dyson hoover, Carpet cleaner hoover...etc etc.

I'll list it all closer to the move.

And both my cars.
You can import your cars. If they are new you might have trouble getting the dealer to honor the warranty but asaik they can be imported.

Nah, the Jeep is RHD (brought it over from the UK) and the other is worth more here.

Re: I'm Leaving Switzerland

Good luck with the move!

Yep, bagels, and depending where in Florida - pastrami. At any rate, you're likely to come across some really good Mexican and even Cuban food.

And central A/C, which you will totally need.

Re: I'm Leaving Switzerland

Good luck with your move!

Florida is a must for me at least three times a year. Of course I go mostly for the fresh seafood, cuban food, the shopping ah and to visit my family.

I hope it all goes smoothly for you and your family and that you enjoy your new life in in the States.

I intend to stick about. I can be the EF's "Our Man Abroad" or "Idiot Abroad" either is good.

Gods, what have I set off?

In other news, Kevlegs was recently photographed trying to make a run for the border over the Bodensee, with EFers grabbing his belonging as he went...



(I could have been blunter... )
I must say this did make me laugh

I see the earthquakes have started in the US as I get ready for my move. Funny though, that only usually happens when I enter churches

It seems my time in Switzerland has come to an end. My better half's jobs has come to an end and we have decided to take the plunge and head over to the USA to be nearer to her family.(And for me to put my plan of reclaiming the colonies into action).

We have set a date of Sept for the move

I look forward to the mass clearout that lays ahead..

I have had a great time in Switzerland and will miss it greatly. Thanks to everyone on this forum that have helped me over the last two years. I hope your stay in Switzerland will go from strength to strength. (Except those that have mocked Mr Jippy)

Now to scour the forums and get some hints and tips to leaving Switzerland. If I find anything new I will post on here.
I'm in the same boat - look forward to reading any and all hints.

Re: I'm Leaving Switzerland

The day has finally arrived. I leave for pastures new.


IF my plane decides its number is up then don't worry, as I'm sure I'll be on an island somewhere working on the Dharma initiative..

Speak soon y'all

Kevlegs, safe flight to you and your family. Let us know when you land and then go straight to complaints for a rant
