Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
I know there are few here that live in Switzerland, and I was hopping they can tell me more about the life there. I am thinking of moving over to Geneva in my future, after I finish my University studies.
But, I have no clue about the life there. Obvioulsy I have an irish setter, working one, that demands pheasants, pigeons, and other upland game bird.
Is it possible to describe some of the major issues in Geneva? such as: standard of living, cost of living, accomodation - (do people live in apartments or houses, which one is more expensive?), jobs? easy to find? hard to find? well paid or not? I am studying Accountantcy and Finance (internationally recognized degrees) as well as taxation but that is based on New Zealand law.
I am into fishing and bird shooting, are those sports well established there?
How are the people there? friendly, private, conservative? here In NZ mostly everyone keeps to themselves, mostly people socialize at work, In my neigbourhood I only know my 1 neigbour all others are very private. No one socializes with anybody. So its kinda taking the heck out of me.
Its not like in Itally, greece or france where people are more live-ly
Crime--- does it happen oftern?
Places to walk the dog- dogs?
I know Ganeva is very scenic and with all the mountains around, but thats why I like to go there, plus the fact that I come from Europe.
Oh, yes.... and are there any issues with bringing my dog from NZ to Swiss... Here in NZ if we import animals from overseas we need to have them in carantin for a certain period. I dont think dogs... but maybe them too. Is there any regulation regarding these?
Any other major issues, or things that I should think about?
