Looking for a Swiss friend living in the region of Aigle/Vevey/Montreux and area?

Hi!
After nearly 20 years spent in Asia, I am back "home", meaning a Swiss girl has returned to her roots! I know it is not easy for foreign expats to make friends in Switzerland (we have the reputation of being a cold and hard to tame "tribe"), but it is not easy either for a Swiss national who spent half her life abroad to get re-acquainted with long lost friends, make new ones and "fit right back in"...
So why not try to meet new people, from a horizon common to mine, (the expat (the word being used in its extended meaning) world/community?
I wouldn't mind helping some of you getting to know the region better, meeting for a coffee from time to time and most of all, as I love to read, I was wondering if any of you would be interested in joining a book club, that would take place on the riviera (from, let's say, Aigle to Vevey)? There are already a few in Lausanne and Geneva, but none that I know of catering to this region. if you are not familiar with how it works, no worries. it usually takes place once a month, participants host the group in turn, each participant chooses a book that we will all read, presents the author, does a summary of the story, and it ends up with a group discussion and opinions being shared about the book and its content. it is opened to everybody, there is no age limit, no specific background required, just the desire to share with others and spend time together around an interesting subject. if anyone out there is interested, in the bookclub or simply to meet someone new, let me know! Bye!

Re: Looking for a Swiss friend living in the region of Aigle/Vevey/Montreux and area?

Hello
I just read your post and wanted to say that I would be interested in joining a book club, if you are still considering setting one up. I moved to the Vevey area about a year ago, and now live in Blonay. I am British and we moved to the area as my husband is Swiss and from the area. I was in a book club in London for many years and it would be great to be in one again!

Hi there,
Thanks for your reply and your interest. Of course setting up a bookclub would be great but unfortunately you are the only one who replied positively! Either TV has more to offer or Nestle Vevey has drastically reduced it's pool of expats in the region.. ;-) but if you feel like meeting someone who spent part of her youth in blonay as well, let me know...

Hello
Singaporealla - I sent you a PM. I could meet in the evening, Friday evening would work best for me as I don't work fridays and have to often travel during the week. But i can be flexible.

Hello!!


I'm from Ireland and moved to Vevey at the beginning of August. I just joined this forum and would be interested in a book club or just generally meeting up with people!
