Looking to Make New Friends Before the Move

Hello everyone,

My name is Roberta and I am currently living in the US – Boston. I am planning to move to Zurich or near with my 3 month old son and Swiss husband.
We are a young 30 and 33 your old interracial couple hoping to start off on a good note, by making some friends here on EF.
Our son has a very friendly out going personality. My husband and I enjoy traveling, meeting new people, going to the movies, out to eat or for drinks, walks,
hikes, and dancing.
Hope to hear from you, friends of EF.

Re: Looking to Make New Friends Before the Move

to the EF (and soon to Switzerland), Roberta!

It is hard to make friends before you arrive, but once you do consult the social events calendar ... there are lots of events in the Zurich area.

Re: Looking to Make New Friends Before the Move

With my family, we plan to go to Zurich in December to visit my in-laws.
I was hoping to get to know some EF members and then try to meet when I'm there.

Hi Roberta,

Firstly, welcome to the EF..... I hope you find this site useful (especially the search function at the top right) to help find everything you need. If not, just post something and I'm sure someone can offer some sort of advice.

Next - the "Social side of things"

Keep your eyes on the "Social Events" pages for something that either:
a) maybe of interest to you, or
b) post an event of your own to try to draw a crowd

Failing that, keep an eyes on this thread (go to the last page) to see if there is a crowd of EFer's on a Thursday night at the Viadukt
(nice restaurant, great people..... and even better cheese)
(new people are ALWAYS welcome)

Hope you settle in nicely
