New to Schaffhausen

Hello! My name is Emily. My family has just arrived in Schaffhausen as of 3 July. We are from Seattle, WA. I would like to meet other English speaking people in my area. My husband's company has relocated us here for 2-3 years. I'm excited about the opportunity to explore a different culture and country.

Re: New to Schaffhausen

Hi Emily and welcome! I hope you and your family are settling in nicely. We arrived just over the river in Flurlingen a few weeks ago and so far I love it here! If you want to meet up send me a message-will have free mornings once school starts on Monday 18th. Yay!

Hello! My husband and I also just relocated. We are living in temp housing in Zurich until our furniture arrives (Oct 1). We are from San Francisco. I am in Schaffhausen each day for work so if you want to meet for lunch, let me know. We would love to make new friends.

I was wondering if any of you would like to meet for lunch in historic Schaffhausen this Thursday, Aug. 21? We could celebrate the first day of school. Em

Yes, Thursday will be perfect. What time works for you? Also, you may need to recommend the place. The only places I have been so far are the vegitarian place, Migro and an Italian restaurant. All were great but I would love to try another place. Maybe Guterhof?

Have you been to Santa Lucia yet? Their Italian food is very good. They are I'm the center of the Old Town on the square. How would 12:30 be?

I am also meeting Lotte on Friday morning at 9:30 for coffee at Der Guterhof if anyone would like to join us. I will have on a peach colored sunhat if the weather is nice.

To be honest ... SH people are not extactly known as Scherz-Kekse

but rather as people taking things seriously

Re: New to Schaffhausen

Emily, I have not been to Santa Lucia yet and LOVE Italian food. Let's meet at 12:30 pm. I have long brown hair and will be wearing some sort of buisiness attire. Looking forward to meeting!
Kim

Hi Emily! I am also a Seattleite new to the area (Zurich). Totally on my own (well, me and a dog). Maybe we can find a place that shows baseball and watch the Mariners magically make it postseason

I am wearing gray pants and a navy shirt, probably will be in my black jacket too since it is still chilly. Looking forward to lunch!

Re: New to Schaffhausen

Kim,

Unfortunately, I am going to have to reschedule. The school panicked about my daughter's allergies so I have to be in school with her today and tomorrow, all day. I am so sorry. This is the first that I've been able to get away to reply.

Private message me, please so we can exchange mobile numbers.
