After some horrible flat search experiences in Zurich I created this service which connects expats offering a flat or room with expats looking for a place to live.  We help expats in Zurich find flats or rooms by connecting them to other expats who are looking for new tenants. We collect room and flat offers which are not published on big internet platforms and send them exclusively to our subscribers. www.flatsforexpats.com https://www.facebook.com/flatsforexpats I'd be great to know if you think this is useful or not! Best, Thomas

Oops perhaps there is this topic already but inspired by something that happened to me this morning I felt like having this discussion with Someone, and who better than five thousand or so of your closest friends whom you have never met.....? My story first: Several years ago an Aunt of mine in England was in the RHS Wisley carpark looking for a space when a car reversed into her. The other party was held completely liable because evidently although most people front park you are only covered by insurance if you reverse or parallel park in this situation. Like a good little geek I have followed this rule where possible in case of small children etc We have been in our new house for almost two weeks and today I received a call from our property management. The neighbours have complained about my parking! There is plenty of room (we have two spaces and I only use one) Evidently my exhaust fumes waft into their garden which is all of five metres away... Please tell me a story so that I know we have not mistakenly bought a house in Freaksville and that there are indeed other Swiss Freaky Neighbours out there! Thank you!

I have a deep passion for flowers, especially orchids which are also my favourites. Unfortunately every time I buy one I know that will not last, they fade away so quicly. Maybe someone on this forum, may give me some orchid care tips. I'll be really grateful!

My family and I have been living here in the Zürich area for three wonderful years now, and we are now moving away for professional reasons. It is a wonderful area to live in, and is very pleasant for expats. There are a lot of international schools and other expat families. So much to do for the children as well. We live on the Gold Coast 25 minutes from Zürich city centre. It is lovely, right next to the countryside and by the lake. Our home is a big family house with a beautiful view on the lake and the Alps. Because we are moving away this summer, it is available for rent. If anyone is interested let me know and I can give you more information.

I know this may sound strange, but will palm trees grow in the Basel area and what do I have to do the winter to keep them from freezing. I would love to have one planted outside to give me the mediterranean feeling, but not sure if I dare! newgirlintown

I have a marble floor that has scratches in it and the finish is basically gone. Can anyone tell me the process of getting the shine back and the dirt AND scratches out. I have been told that you can either just "clean and polish up applying a product to shine, or sand and clean -polish and put the protectant on.Questions are1. Does the sanding produce a lot of dust in the rooms - on the windows2. do the scratches "disappear" from the floor after the sanding?3. What would the price per m2 be for a) clean - polish or b) sand, clean polish and4. How long would it generally take to do a 40m2 apartment with the sanding option?Thanks for your inputmg
