My family is moving to Geneva over the summer for a long term assignment (2 years plus) from the States. We are being pretty well taken care of, including the use of a shipping container for personal goods. Since the cost of shipping is covered, I'm throwing it out there for comment from people who have already made the move;
If you could, what would you bring over from the States? I realize that things are generally more costly in Europe, but what did you find that was crazy expensive once you got to Geneva? Items that we already own like bikes, furniture etc are a no brainer. I'm looking for advice on things that I might not think of, since this is pretty much a one time shot.
