Somewhat New in Basel

Hello everyone,

My husband and I moved to Basel in May and have been reading the excellent forum here for a few months. I thought it would be a good time to introduce ourselves. Thanks to everyone for their help, and to a few of the members that we have bought items from. I work here in Basel and my husband commutes to Dübendorf every day (quite a long commute for him). We are now settled into our permanent apartment and are hoping to attend a few of the social events and meet more people.

We moved over from San Francisco California, though both of us are originally from the Midwest. We really enjoy hiking and exploring so we have been traveling around Switzerland these last few months with our GAs. We are taking German classes but still have quite a long way to go.

Thanks again for the help and we hope to meet you

Welcome to Basel.
I’m a newbie too so hope to meet you at one of the upcoming events. I am also taking German classes and can recommend the German conversation group (Weds) if you fancy some practice in a relaxed friendly environment?
