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?

Re: Moving to Chur

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

Hi there.
Not sure if this thread is still active...
Been in Chur for almost a couple of months, just found out about this Forum.
Wondering if anyone is keen to do meet-ups in Chur?

Welcome to the EF! and to Chur!
My family and I have been here for 3 years now, haven't had a meetup since Puhutes moved to the end of the world, she was the organizer... the rest of us are too lazy I think, I know I am.

Welcome to the forum Frann.
Thanks for the replies

@TC - 3 years! Wow! You must be fully settled by now.
Happy to organise a meetup if people are keen and have time. Would be interested to hear how you and your family have adjusted to life in Chur too.

If you guys have the energy to organise, we would happily join in the fun. Would be great to share some insights. Weekends are always for us.

Well, 3 moves (within Chur) in 3 years LOL, but finally a place with a real garden and it feels like home and settling in... we are not completely "moved in" and have to finish the clean up of the old apartment by the 21st of September. I have to get an operation on my knee as somehow I fouled up the meniscus carrying furniture and boxes up and down the stairs

I may be involved in the cleaning these weekends, (the landlord is requiring us to clean and paint the shutters)
I could possibly show up after 14:30 on Sunday at Cafe Arcas, and bring my daughter while my wife cleans

Re: Moving to Chur

Hi everyone, I am also new in Chur (ehm.. actually Trimmis)...
Although I am italian I love speaking english and would like to hang out with some native speakers.

I work in Chur, I join a basketball team once a week (called oldies but goldies) also in Chur, beside that, not much connected yet to the people here.

Cheers

Lorenzo

Hi Danny, I can only post 4 PM every 1440 Min (24h...)
So we'd better write here...
I agree about what you just wrote (working opportunities) but my wife as a better working position than mine, so she's not willing to change...
My son is 93cm (19 Months), since I'm 198 cm tall I don't find it that strange...
