Moved to the Ticino

Good afternoon to everyone
I have just moved to the Ticino, Pianezzo near Bellinzona. I used to live near Zurich. I have just retired after working for 46 years in Tourism. I am 64. I am multilingual and speak English, German, Swiss German, Italian and French. I would love to make some new friends in the Ticino. My husband and I have several joint interests like good food, wine, travel, culture, art as well as hiking. I would love though also to meet ladies for coffee or other social activities. I look forward to your messages.
best regards
Stefanie

Re: Moved to the Ticino

Hello Stefanie, good to have you here! I've seen coffee meet-up threads around here. If you use the search function, you could see if there is one near you, or alternatively start a new thread to meet people near you.

Re: Moved to the Ticino

Hi there and welcome to Ticino. My experience in Lugano was that much of the expat action is through Internations or Meetup page. Also there is IWC in Lugano that I understand is very active. However when I say very active its the Ticinese way, this place does not have a buzzing expat scene so speaking Italian does help you to make friends I find people here generally the friendliest bunch in Swiss (and have lived both in German and French speaking part already), just its a lot quieter and bit isolated due to slow connections to rest of Swiss / international airport...anyway am sure you will love it and hiking here goes on late November and you can then swap snowshoes on and continue

Re: Moved to the Ticino

Dear Paul
thank you for your kind welcome. I like the guitar and am now rather curious if it has something to do with you - are you a professional player?
Best wishes
Stefanie

Dear Stefanie - congratulations for that hawk eye
That "was" (I sold her in the meantime) a 1974 Fender Starcaster which I had purchased after seeing Johnny Greenwood (Radiohead) playing one.
I have never played professionally (and in retrospect was a good thing) but I'm representing some excellent luthiers for the italian market.
Other musical endeavors are tied to live and studio sound engineering.

Cheers,

Paul
