Moving to Bern in August

Hello everyone,

My name is Sofía Ugás. I am 27 years old, Im a Peruvian lawyer (Perú is in Latin America for those who have forgotten your geography lessons). I am going to do an internship at the swiss competition agency from august to november. I will arrive at Bern on August 25.

I speak spanish, english and french (My french is kind of basic because I studied it at school and I am currently taking classes to remember it!!!)

I am very outgoing, fun and I love to hang out with my friends! This is why i am quite worried that I dont know ANYONE at Bern and i have never been to Switzerland so I am afraid that i am going to be lost

In that sense, I hope I can make new friends soon so at least I know someone when I arrive to Bern.

Bye!!!

Sofía

Welcome to the forum.

I'd like to think that most people know where Peru is - if they don't - then they don't belong here in Swaziland.

Don't worry too much about French - you won't need that much in Bern - get some German lessons, instead.

On your arrival, you can organise a party for EFers, with free drinks - that'll find you some new "friends", I'm sure.

Re: Moving to Bern in August

Hey Sofia I am relatively new in Bern to (about 3 months) and also a foreigner (from Zimbabwe) I'd dig to hang out for sure when you arrived as I am not doing anything at the moment and still making friends. Give me a shout when you are here.

Re: Moving to Bern in August

Hey Sofia!

I am in Thun, about a 20 minute train ride from Bern, but am frequently in Bern for teaching.

I'd love to hang out anytime whenever you're free!

Hope you enjoy Bern!

Re: Moving to Bern in August

This msg might be too late for it. But if you guys are having coffee somewhere when Sofia comes, would you mind if I join as well? I just got here a couple of months back and still in the process of getting furnitures sorted. One can always make time time to meet new friends. So please give me a shout?

Re: Moving to Bern in August

I'm also interested if there's a get together event. I arrived on July 1st with my girlfriend. We're 27 yo Canadian/26 yo Austrian, respectively and would love to meet some new people in Bern after work.

Re: Moving to Bern in August

Oh, that's actually this coming Saturday.... Hum....I should be able to make it. I have heard of the club but never showed up before. I will bring sausages and beers.... But I don't know how to work a grill so I'll have to ask someone to help.... I have been following the stereotyping convention and let the guys do the grill work and allow myself to compliment them while they cook. :-D

Re: Moving to Bern in August

Hello! I am in Solothurn which is about 20 miles or so north of bern, but am in and out of bern a far bit, so yeah, if you are up for meeting for a coffee (or something stronger!) when you arrive, let me know. Bern is a lovely place.
Good luck with your move!

Re: Moving to Bern in August

A friday night shindig sounds awesome. There are some cool places I have seen, but they are always much more fun in a group.
So count me in when you have organised something.
