I am a philosophy student at Columbia University who is very interested in looking after your home and pets in September (dates flexible). I speak English, Russian, and a bit of French and seek somewhere quiet and relaxing to work on my poetry before enrolling at Oxford in October. I grew up with cats and dogs, so I am very comfortable around them. I also have experience gardening and maintaining my family’s country home. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you think we can work something out. Again, my dates within the month of September (I could even arrive at the very end of August and leave in the early days of October) are flexible. Thanks, Mark

Hello, folks! We are moving to Lugano in December for work and would really appreciate any tips or thoughts you might be able to offer very new residents - where to eat, shop, things we must do - any ideas will be much appreciated. We have a house to live in but know no-one!!

Hi! I'm contemplating a move to Lugano from Finland in August-September this year or if all else fails the very latest in December. I'm actually looking for a school where I could study at first while I brush up my almost non-existant italian skills. I'm having quite hard time organizing everything and trying to work out all the details of moving abroad. I'm sure you know very well what I'm talking about. My fiancé lives in Lugano and I would be moving there to live with him. I have two kids from a previous relationship, so that complicates things a little. We'll have a house in the beginning of June and I'll be arriving to Lugano in mid-June to stay and organize things. My kids will arrive 2 weeks later with my mother to stay for a while. Nothing except the house is sure yet. I'd be very interested in getting to know other expats as well as locals of course. I know no-one except my fiancé and he too has moved there 4 years ago and doesn't know that many people. Maybe we could meet up while I'm there in the summer and you could give me your tips as someone whose been there :D

A writer from the Associated Press is interested in talking to people who decide to retire abroad for reasons related to affordable health care. He is also interested to hear about other reasons why you chose to retire abroad. If you would be interested to speak with him and possibly be written about in his article, please send an email to Joshua Wood at: joshua@expatexchange.com.
