Hello to Basel from Finland

Hi everyone,

I have found this website so amazingly helpful! Thank you soso much!

I am 29 year old girl from Finland and I moved to Basel with my 4 year old boxer dog Koda. I am starting my masters studies next month at FHNW. I am always up to meeting new people and hanging out, especially outdoors where Koda can join.

Hoping to meet you all very soon!

-Sanna

Welcome to Switzerland from a fellow Finn!

Funny thing is, I spent most of my childhood in Basel and still go up there to see parents from time to time

I hope you will like it, it's quite a cosy city which is comfortable to hang out in in summer, good city atmosphere and quite a few parks to please Koda too!

Hi Sanna,

Welcome to Basel. I arrive in a few days time and would like to meet new people also.
Perhaps we could meet up some day.

Kind regards,
Ruairi

Welcome to Basel Sanna!

Cool that you brought your dog with you, this way you're always in good company

There are two interesting groups on Facebook and also several events for the "younger" internationals in Basel.

Welcome to Basel.

If you're wondering what all that stuff is outside, it's called "light".

Re: Hello to Basel from Finland

Tervetuloa Sanna!

Jos vierailet joskus Zürichin seudulla, niin voidaan käydä vaikka kahvilla Mulla on täällä toinenkin suomalainen kaveri joka vois lyöttäytyä seuraan!


Translation:

Welcome Sanna!

If you visit Zürich sometime, we could go for a coffee I have another finnish friend here who could join us as well!

Terve Sana!

Hope you'll enjoy Basel as much as I do.

If you wan't to meet some new people of the similar age and "occupation", you can join our small group for the movie night (in English) each Thursday at 20:30 at Bernoullianum (Bernoullistrasse 32).

Cheers!

Bine ai venit, Sanna! Sper ca vei avea o experienta fantastica in Elvetia!



Nothing personal, just noticed that complaining about writing in a language other than English is very, very selective. Sorry, could not resist..

Re: Hello to Basel from Finland

BTW everyone is invited to our movie nights. Just let me know aforehand so someone can let you in (since the uni automatically locks at 18h). This Thursday is Schweizermacher (look it up on IMDB).

PS. Sorry to disappoint you, I'm not Finnish. I was just enthusiastic about Finland ever since I met a few guys from there.

We're watching Ran by Akira Kurosawa this Thursday. It will be subtitled in English ofc. }:-)

HOWEVER just this week, we will have only a small beamer, hence just a half the screen we usually project our movies onto. }:-/ But it's still nice and you're very welcome to come around. }:-)

Next week we should be back to our proper setup.

And one more thing, it's a very informal atmosphere and usually just 4-5 (although very friendly) people, so the accent is more on beers than the movies. So you can expect the sound of some crisps-bags crunching or bottles during the movie.
