New in Bern

Hey,

I am relatively new in Bern and originally from Southern Africa.I moved here to live with my partner who is swiss. Been trying to figure out ways to get out and meet new english speaking people and my german is still quite basic at the moment. Anyone got any ideas or anybody out there keen to meet.

Re: New in Bern

Just realised I posted this in the wrong place. Is there any way to move it?

Re: New in Bern

Someone will probably move it to introductions.

Welcome to the Forum. Bern has a reputation for being quiet, and the EF have kept to this line of thought. I have organised 3 evening events here and no-one turns up. Maybe you can try harder? For the last event I was in England,
Papajoe's Bern, drinks meet-up Maybe you can organize a meetup in August? The Swiss like at least 6 weeks notice for an event, but for most people 7 days is enough.

Re: New in Bern

Hey chocolatebear!

I'm not in Bern anymore, but I live in Thun, which is only about 20 minutes away by train. I am frequently in Bern though, and have a few friends who would be happy to meet someone new!

PM me if you're interested in meeting up or anything like that!

-Ashley

I have noticed that spontaneity is not really part of their vocabulary.

Re: New in Bern

Thanks for the invite Ittigen, but I guess I missed it. But apparently it looks like Bern is a very quiet place (on the forum anyway)

Re: New in Bern

As I said, then please organise something. Maybe a meetup at the café - restaurant between the zoo and river,
