Welsh expat recently moved to Aarau

Hi there.

I知 32 and have recently moved to Aarau with my husband and 17-month-old. I知 settling in well and really like the town, but would love to meet some English speaking mums / people around my age (kid-free time is also welcome!) to start building a community and network.

I知 happy to travel to the surrounding areas and am already doing weekly trips to Baden for a toddler music class, along with other sightseeing trips. I have a car or am happy to use the (ridiculously efficient!) trains.

Please get in touch if you壇 like to meet up. I知 also looking to start German lessons so if anyone has any recommendations please send them my way

Thanks,
Anna

Re: Welsh expat recently moved to Aarau

Hi, and welcome to the forum and to Switzerland. Here's a fairly recent thread from another mother around your way... though of course it'll depend on where exactly you're each staying, and the logistics.

Welsh ? They speak quite a lot of it here but more in the west part of the country, so much so in fact, that it is also known as the "Welschschweiz"

Re: Welsh expat recently moved to Aarau

Yes, because both words come from the same etymological source:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walhaz

but I am obviously speaking about the Celtic language...

Re: Welsh expat recently moved to Aarau

Hi Anna,
I'm also new in Switzerland, just moved here one year ago. I live in Lenzburg, which is a city not far from Aarau. Would be a pleasure to have a cup to coffee with you together ;-)

I would be happy to meet up should there be an appetite under the current restrictions. I am a newbie in Aarua and coming from Shropshire, we are practically neighbours .

Baden is a good location since it is very close to where I am.
