Back in Bern/Fribourg Area

Hello everyone!

My husband (US) and I (Swiss) just moved to Switzerland after living in the States for three years. My hubby only speaks English.
We are in our 30s, like the outdoors, traveling, hiking, swimming in the rivers, BBQs etc. We are not exactly party animals but would love to meet some great people to hang out with.
We live in the Bern / Fribourg area.

Re: Back in Bern/Fribourg Area

Hello,

My name is Mag and I used to live in the US for 10 years. I'm now back in Europe (French originally) after a couple of years in the UK. I will be moving to Bern on August 3rd and would love to hang out with you guys and get to know more people in Berne. Where did you live in the US? Did you like it?

Hope the return is not too hard!

Take care,
Mag

PS: I'm in my 30's as well and have connected with an italian who lives in Bern as well. The more the merrier!

Hi Mag

That sounds great!
We lived in Washington and Texas. We liked it a lot but we did miss the outdoors. Especially in Texas.
Let me know when you get here and we meet up for drinks, dinner, or whatever.

Re: Back in Bern/Fribourg Area

Hello!

I was following another thread recently from people who live in or around Fribourg and it sounded as though someone was going to start an English speaking "club", which sounds great, but I've lost the thread! I'll try to find it and let you know where it was!

Btw, the best place to meet English Speaking people in Fribourg is at the pub Paddy's next to the NH hotel. It's an English speaking community in FR, don't order a drink in French, they won't understand! I'm not a fan of football, but they also regularly show football and rugby matches on big screens, if you're interested!

CU around!
