Moved to Basel from England

Hi!!

Well I am now in Basel. Moved last week from Shropshire in England and already exploring the city in between trying to get a job/apartment!!!

My boyfriend works out here and he has only been living here for a couple weeks longer than me.

We are both enjoying Basel already and ventured into Germany at the weekend.

I am 22 and my boyfriends 25 so we are searching for other young couples that have moved here.....

and I am looking for another female to talk to/shop with/have coffee!!!!

Alice

Re: Moved to Basel from England

Hey Alice,

Welcome to basel! How are you enjoying it so far? Finding an appartment could be tough especially at this time of the year but If you need help let me know, I became an expert on this . I moved here 2 years ago, its a great and cozy city. If you'd like to go for a coffee sometime let me know, I have a lot of free time these days.

Hi Alice. Welcome to EF and welcome to Basel.

I'm a bit long in the tooth to be giving useful advice to youngsters, but there's plenty of Basel wippersnappers around to offer their wisdom.

The santa theme is new, so there is nothing to compare it to. I will be going all out, some sort of santa dress, hat, decorations etc. I'll be in the US the weekend before so it will be easier for me to find stuff i know. I think it will be accross the board buttttt the more crazy the outfits the betetr! At a minimum i guess a hat will do!

Re: Moved to Basel from England

Hi Alice!
Hope that you are settling in well. Good work on visiting Germany already, really adventurous!
We're in a similar situation. I moved out here to work straight from uni in September and my girlfriend is coming to visit for a month next Tuesday. If you'd like to meet up anytime from then give us a shout.
I'm sure Katie would be willing to fill the gap of shopping and chatting!
Barney and Katie

ps We are 22 and 23 so also young and new!

Re: Moved to Basel from England

Welcome to Basel. I moved down from the Shropshire hills in 1983... There is so much to see and do around the area, especially if you like outdoor sports.

I kind of run the EF indoor climbing group if you want to come along to that

Welcome to Basel!

I moved her earlier this year but from last month I'm in Basel "fulltime". Just like you and your friend not old ;-) (26) and hoping my GF will move to Switzerland next year (22).

Will you both attend the Santa Pub Crawl?

Welcome to Basel! I'm always up for a cup of coffee and a chat. The shopping here isn't exactly stellar, but I'd gladly window shop with you

Hey and another big welcome to Basel! I have been here since April for work but in Switzerland over 8 years now. I am 24 and also always keen to meet the younger group of EF members and "Auslšnder" :P

I speak SwissGerman fluently so if you need any assistance or have some questions search on EF or just message me (PM)!
