We left a 1900+ square foot home in a city Money Magazine consistently ranks in the top 5 Best Places to Live, for a 1000 square foot apartment in a city consistently ranked by virtually everyone as one of the most expensive places to live.

While our floor space was cut in half, the rent we pay is virtually twice our mortgage payment. It’s not uncommon in Switzerland for rent to over 1/3 of your income.

Not complaining. Just noting a difference. A really expensive difference.
