If you’ve recently used the services of an international moving company then you might like to try your luck in a competition being run by GoodMigrations, the company we featured on knowitall.ch in June 2012, and whose website enables you to find international movers in your region and read customer reviews of how they performed.  
To enter the competition, all you have to do is submit a review on the removal company that you used, using the review form located on the GoodMigrations website.  The form is very short and should take no more than a minute to complete. Only reviews submitted by 30 September 2012 will be eligible for entry into the competition.
If you win, GoodMigrations reserves the right to request proof of your international relocation, which must have occurred after 1 January 2010.  Click here to read the complete rules of entry.

There may come a time when you leave Geneva.  Many people come and go, but even those who may have had a tough time adjusting to the slower Geneva pace in the beginning, may be sad to leave.  After seven happy years in Geneva, my husband was transferred to his company’s New Jersey office.  Although I was excited to return to the US for a few years, I was also sad to leave.   Geneva had become our home.  We moved there with a 6 month old baby girl and left with two daughters, seven and five.  Once I reconciled myself with the new adventure, I snapped into action mode.  There are a lot of things that must be done before you leave Switzerland.  As I watch two good friends follow in my footsteps this year (one to Singapore and one to Korea), I decided to put together this list:

Following the incredible ice scenes we witnessed in and around Geneva last February, Sandor Szabados, MD of local firm BTL Printing Services (and amateur photographer), will publish an up-market glossy book of photos featuring pictures from this extraordinary ice storm.
The aim of the book is simply to combine the best amateur and professional photos taken from around the lake.
Since this is a community, not-for-profit project, copyright costs will not be paid, but photographers can expect to be credited in the book next to their photos and will receive a free copy of the book, which is scheduled for publication for Christmas 2012.
If you have any photos that you would like to submit for consideration, then please send them to Sandor at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by June 30 2012 at the latest.

There is a new book out in English called  “Living along Lac Léman” by Catherine Nelson-Pollard, author and founder of the site www.livinginnyon.com.


The book is a light-hearted look at life along the shores of lake Geneva. It is a selection of columns which have been published for the last two years in English every Friday in La Côte newspaper - it is about the people, places and events in Vaud as seen through the eyes of a British expatriate.





Expat Expo is a prime event for Anglophone community of Switzerland. The event is intended to gather various renowned businesses, organizations, museums, clubs, service providers and buyers together, under one roof. The exhibitors will display their latest goods and valuable services for the English-speaking market of Switzerland. It will provide opportunity to build and promote brand name, create product image, build business contacts with visitors and exhibitors and create future business prospects. The visitors will get chance to see and compare the various products and services, meet face-to-face with industry professionals, learn about various products and gain valuable knowledge abut various brands and services available in the Swiss market. The Expat Expo is a must-attend event for Switzerland's Anglophone residents.


Integrating into a new country can be a daunting process for anyone and Expat-Expo is designed to help the Anglophone community feel quickly at home by showcasing a wide variety of businesses, organisations, museums, clubs and churches from all over Switzerland. In the space of an afternoon, families can find important goods and services such as bankers, doctors, accountants and lawyers, schools and day-care, museums, clubs and churches, even specialty food items. We believe our service contributes greatly to the successful integration of newly arrived families and veteran expats alike and reduces the stresses of integration for expats and their employers.
