Thank you for the wonderful goodbyes and goodbye get togethers. We have enjoyed seeing as many of you as possible over the past few weeks and wish we could have seen more of you before we left.
We are really lucky to have this opportunity and have never minded camping. We’ve been camping in our house for the past month or so. We are on an Aerobed. It is beginning to look a bit worse for the wear. I know that these aren’t great pictures, but you get the idea.
We have the world’s most comfortable mattress that is somewhere on the Atlantic en route to our new home. Can’t wait!
We have our tickets booked! Even though I have only a few days left in town and sleep on an air mattress, I still have to pinch myself to believe this is happening. We will leave on the 19th and arrive in Geneva on the 20th. Don’t plan on seeing us around town after Wednesday though.
Moving has kept me busy. He has been working both jobs and travelling a lot. Since the dogs (for the time they are still with us) don’t have opposable thumbs, no one in this house has been up for blogging.
To update everyone…
We went to Switzerland
separately, but our visits overlapped for a 2 days. We made the most of it and got busy falling in love with our new hometown. Before he arrived, I toured about 18 apartments. I only saw one that I thought we would love. Since the real estate market
is so tight, this was not good. The gods must be smiling on us because last Friday we found out that we got it.
Our new abode is in the heart of Genève
(merci beaucoup to my French
teacher for teaching me how to do accents on my computer) in a neighborhood called Eaux-Vives. It has two bedrooms (visitors anyone?) and we will have it as of July 1! He has only seen pictures of it, but we are thrilled and envisioning making our home there.
Eaux-Vives is a great neighborhood. It is safe, older and centrally located. People walk its streets, enjoy its cafés/ restaurants/shops, and take advantage of the lake/parks located nearby. He will just have to walk a block and hop on a tram to go to work.
We can’t go to Switzerland with our mom and dad. Please adopt us.
