Hello from Winterthur

Hey guys,

Just a quick note to say hi and to introduce myself (and thank you to all the contributors to the forum. This forum really has made settling in a lot easier).

I am a 30 year old guy and I have just moved to Winti in the last couple of weeks from London for work.

I only know a couple of people in Switzerland so looking to grow my social network. i am also quite keen to pair up with someone to practice German (complete beginner) or do an English/German swap. It would be really great to meet up with other people in winti / Zurich for a drink/coffee or to explore the city together etc.

silvestre

Hi Silvestre - welcome to Winti!

The Winti expats meetup gets together once a month to have a few beers, and the next one of those is the 5th Feb. From that you may be able to expand your social circle - however, as with many of these things, watch out for who will help you expand your social circle and who socialize exclusively with the same small number of expats.

Hi Aeneas,

Thanks for the heads up, I turned up to the one last week, it was really good! Met interesting people and a bunch of us who live in the city centre were meant to meet on Wednesday but unfortunately didn't happen.

I will also be turning up to the Feb one. Are you part of the Winti meetup?

Just thought I would try my luck and see if there are more people here who aren't part of the meetup. The other good one, albeit a subs paying one, is the Zurich expats meetup.

Well, I turn up to them, if that's what you mean. Between those meetups and this forum, it pretty much covers my expat interaction quota.

I don't think the Zurich expats meetup is a subs paying one, per say, just that they often have to pay for the venues, so they charge people a nominal amount to cover this. Also, I think some of the meetups there are run by third parties who do run their events for profit.

While expat social groups are not a bad outlet, especially when you arrive here first, I'd recommend looking into meetups that are not based on being an anglophone expat as you really want to avoid ending up in that bubble.

Welcome,

I can recommend a great sushi place in Winterthur, it is in the left side of the cinema building, near the train station.
