Looking to meet new friends around Vevey!

Hi everyone,
We've just moved here after 10 years in Hong Kong. My husband is the one who got the job so for now I'm looking after our 14 months old son in a hope to find a daycare. Meanwhile I'd be happy to meet new friends in the area, join playgroups witg my son or any other activities. I was working in the wine industry.
Miss speaking English too!
Linda

Re: Looking to meet new friends around Vevey!

Welcome- as a wine lover, you are in the right place, with the Unesco Lavaux vineyards, and the Valais around the corner. Enjoy - santť.

If you ever want to learn about absinthe, the real stuff not the Prague fluorescent **** - get in touch. Happy to show you around.

Re: Looking to meet new friends around Vevey!

Welcome! Might I suggest there is a Lausanne (Vaud & Geneva) ladies meetup group on facebook that might be a great way to meet other women in the area. There are many mothers with young children (and ladies without) who meet up for coffee and playdates, dinner, drinks etc. It's a great way to make friends closeby!

Re: Looking to meet new friends around Vevey!

Hello, Limlinda!

The link to the group is here, i think itís the same one posted by henrikh

https://www.facebook.com/groups/Laus...ups/?ref=share

Also, for general posts, this Lausanne/Vaud expats group is good for recommendations, advice, buying/selling, all sorts of things. Iíve found it useful during my time here (Iíll be leaving soon sadly!)

https://m.facebook.com/groups/122289...3886?ref=share

Good luck!
