New in Basel, New in the Forum - Hello All

Hi All,

I am from Denmark and just moved to Basel 1 month ago. I have been here on temporary assignment before in 2007/2008, so I know the city pretty well. However, I find that coming back more permanently there is still lots I know absolutely nothing about

Will look forward to keep exploring this city and beautiful country more and to get to know people from this forum - if nothing else, then at least virtually

Have a nice weekend,
Miss Friis

Re: New in Basel, New in the Forum - Hello All

Hi

I'm new to Basel too- just 8 days here! - and looking to meet people and make new friends too... So if you'd like to meet up for a drink feel free to PM me! I'm still trying to get my apartment sorted so I have not really had a chance to explore- would be fun to have someone to explore with!

Thank Uncle Max for the events advice but not much seems to happen in Basel unless u run or sing karaoke ;-) so maybe we could set up meet-n-greets?!

Hope you're enjoying urself here already

steph

Welcome to Basel. You will find there's a lot more activities going on, ranging from movie nights to visits to the Zoo. As there is more info available, will let you both know.

I hope you are settling in OK and enjoying the forum, it'll be a few months before I am there and I hear that spring is the best time of year to move. Enjoy

Re: New in Basel, New in the Forum - Hello All

Thank you for the welcome - much appreciated.

Stephanie, I'd be happy to explore with you :-)

And the idea of a meet ´n´ greet is great - I´d for sure come to that!

Happy monday

Stephanie and Miss Friis (and all the non-newbies too!) there is a curry this Wednesday which is a great way to meet people. If you can make it just sign up on the events page. Maybe see you there!

Or create an event that you think should have already existed, and invite people to it ;)

Re: New in Basel, New in the Forum - Hello All

Hello
Welcome to Basel. We're new here too. To 'meet and greet' you may want to join the expat centre called Centrepoint


They do lots of events. We've only been once - just last week for a talk about Fasnacht - it was really good (we feel more prepared for the festival now) and everyone was super nice.

Re: New in Basel, New in the Forum - Hello All

Hi and Welcome to the forum.

I've made one trip to Denmark a couple years ago, and have to claim, it's my favorite place in the world!

Would love to live there, but I guess Swiss-German is slightly easier for me than Danish :P

Enjoy

Lived six years in Arhus, tried, really tried to learn Danish but all you guys speak fantastic English so it was a no contest.
