Looking for friends

Hi my names Ziggy (girl), iím 18 and currently stuck in Switzerland until I can get back to Australia. I live half way between Fribourg and Bern, I enjoy dancing and shopping. Just wanting to find some people to be friends with and have a good time instead of with my family all the time. Looking forward to making some new friends

Re: Looking for friends

Welcome to the forum.

What do you mean stuck? Due to the coronavirus or because parents are living/working here atm?

Go back to Australia. Pay to stay in a quarantine hotel for two weeks.(You should have gone months ago when the Australian government paid for it).

Or hook up with our friend https://www.englishforum.ch/family-m...epression.html

Itís not that simple. I would have gone back months ago but because of personal reasons I had to stay in Switzerland. I had a flight booked for September but that was cancelled and now thereís very little flights going that are affordable.

Be adventurous ! 1000 chf should get you a scooter (you may even be able to find a postie bike). Just ride to Australia ! Will be the trip of your life.

I heard Iranian people are very friendly so I'd definately go through there if I were you...

Well you are going to be here a long time then, maybe another year from what I've read. Do you have permission to stay in Switzerland for a long time?

Re: Looking for friends

Hi, and welcome to the forum! I hope you find some friends to hang around with.

One option would be to look for clubs in your local community - sports clubs, art/craft clubs, whatever. Even if you're not so interested in the club's activities, you can meet some nice people in a safe environment.

If you're up for a trip to Bern, you could try the Bern underwater hockey club - you don't need to be fast or a strong swimmer, just comfortable on the bottom of the pool. If you have swimmers, and contact them in advance, they should be able to have mask, snorkel, and flippers available for you to borrow if you don't have your own. They'll teach you everything you need to know, and the club members range in age from people in their 50s down to about 12. I know some of them pretty well over a long time, and they're nice people.
