This is a post from one of our AIWC members who writes the blog, Schwingen in Switzerland.
She has some great expat tips, so I wanted to share her post, Geneva Expat 101, Lesson Two – Pack A Swiss Army Knife.
|If only I could have packed the puppies…|
I did a pretty good job packing. So far, we have had almost everything we need and it all fits in our apartment. I have made a couple of mistakes.
I forgot to pack a can opener. When I needed one to open a can of peas fo my Indian food the other night, I realized my mistake. Luckily, we had a Swiss Army Knife. I used it to open the can and felt very Swiss.

|That’s a knife! Who doesn’t love MacGygver?|
Another packing mistake, I didn’t count on the oven being so small. My baking sheets don’t really fit; they are too wide. Oops.
|Not the best photo, but trust me on this one.|
