New in Biel/Bienne

Hey there!

I moved to Biel/Bienne almost 2 weeks ago but won't start working before august. Even though i speak both French and German it isn't that easy to meet new people here.
I've spend the last year mostly in Berlin and did travel a lot for my job the last years, so I'm kind of used to not having my friends around.
I'm 32, grew up in a French German English speaking family - it is not that much fun to grow up with too many languages, but it makes life a lot easier!! I love sports - I used to work as ski instructor -, movies, music (that's my job, classical music to be more precise)...
If anyone's up for a drink or can tell me about Bienne, where to go, what to do, contact me. would be nice!
