Moving to Chur

We are moving to Chur after the Holidays and would like to meet some English speaking friends. My husband will be working all day and would love someone to hang out with!

All the Best,
Shawn

Re: Moving to Chur

Welcome to Switzerland and the forum! I am living in Basel but if you ever come up for a visit feel free to message me. Might be nice to visit Chur some day too! Good luck with the move. Where in the US are you coming from?

Hi there,

Me and my boyfriend are also moving to Zurich after the Holidays, we will be there around the 1st of February. As he will be working and not me as to start with, of course I would love to meet english speaking people.

Re: Moving to Chur

Welcome to the forum!

Not many EFers in the Chur area that I know of but were not too far away and we know a few Brits and Americans in the area. Maybe we should arrange a local get together. Failing that there are many EF events in the Zurich area which is not too far away by train

Hope you like snow 'cos it coming down heavily right now

Re: Moving to Chur

Hello there

I am new in Chur and would love to meet people, English-speakers and others! Specially because my partner works a lot and I don't work yet, so I have lots of free time... I am from Germany but fluent in English, because a part of my family is English-speaking. Is still anyone active on this thread?

Re: Moving to Chur

Hi there!

Oh that'd be so nice! We don't have kids (yet) but like kids, so bring yours along :-) We'll be in Chur most of the week-ends in February, what about meeting up for a walk in the snow, a coffee in the afternoon or for a dinner? I am not used to forums like this, how can we contact each other?

Hello guys.

Been busy lately, taking a German language class in the AM for the next week. That and trying to take care of stuff and our kid it's challenging to find free time.

My wife and I just (about 1.5 months) moved here from Seattle. She's originally from Chur/Lenzerheide so this is her home turf.

We sometimes take our kid to the Speilplatz next to Coop near the Old Town. You guys know where that is? Maybe do a hook-up when we/I take my kid there in an afternoon or weekend.

til then, ciao

-Dave

Re: Moving to Chur

Hi Dave!

Great to hear from you! I think it's a great idea if we get everyone together! Puhutes was saying that she wanted to do that as well and would contact everyone to arrange something.

So you're taking German! That's cool! I'll be starting my German course on the 29th but it will be in Zurich... Which I actually wanted :-) anyway really hope that we can all meet up soon! Would be nice to not have a language barrier :-)

Take care!
Lindsay
