Young person moving to Basel

Hi everyone,
Firstly I'd like to say how useful I've been finding the site.

Secondly, Hi! I'm Katie, I'm 19 and I'm moving to Basel to live with my (swiss) boyfriend. I did a season ski instructing in Grindelwald, Berner Oberland.

I'm hoping to move in September, so I'm in the process of sorting everything out.

Is there anyone aound my age on here in Basel/ surrounding area? Or anyone's family, friends of family etc? I don't want to have to rely on my boyfriend's circle of friends to get to know people..

Thanks

Hello Katie and welcome to the forum and soon to Switzerland.
You have the right attitude, you should definitely make friends on your own, instead of relying 100% on your boyfriends friends, you'll need someone to talk to when he's not behaving, right?

I honestly don't know many expats that young here in Basel, I know many late 20's / early 30's but I guess a lot of things depends on what your plans are? Go to school, go to work? I'm sure you'll meet plenty of new people your age if you get to school.
