Brian talked to Doug, his future boss over in Switzerland, today. We are now looking at a June 9 start date for his job, possibly earlier. We are hoping for that date because we'd like to fly over June 1. This probably won't be settled for another month or two though, so it is all rough planning as of now!
We also won't have housing until we fly over there. The plan is to live in temporary housing for 2-4 weeks or until we find an apartment. If it takes longer for us to find an apartment, we pay whatever we would in rent towards the temporary housing. Doug mentioned to Brian before that finding an apartment hasn't been a problem in a past. Hopefully we find something during our first week over there!
