Re: new friends in Basel

Hello,

I know how you feel. Even though I have lived in Basel for less than two years, already a few friends moved back to their home countries. I am Italian as well, and I will be more than happy if you come over for a coffee and share with me some of your thought about Italy/Switzerland, etc. Just send me a PM and we can arrange!

Ciao

Re: new friends in Basel

Hello to you both and welcome Chiara!

There actually are quite a few Italians in Basel - some who've lived here a long time (like my neighbor and the neighbor of my m-i-l) and some who are a bit more new to town.

I don't know how forward you may be but one way to "find" them would be to perhaps search the forum for other intro posts, I've met a couple that participate in some Basel events through this forum (I'm not Italian myself though ).

Also, if you're up for it, we tend to have things going on in Basel fairly often - keep an eye on the Social Events section of the forum for things which may be of interest to you. (Psst... I think there is something going on tonight even )

Re: new friends in Basel

I'd hinted at this before, here is a stronger hint...

Some folks are meeting up tonight at City Beach for drinks and nibbles if ya'll are interested. Even if drinks isn't really your thing, the folks who are going are all pretty cool folks and have been known to do river side bbq and things like that.

Anyhow, welcome also vikram_bhatt7 to Basel, hopefully however you spend it, your evening is swell.

Most of my friends are married and have children so being again single, since 3 months, I have a different schedule as them I am right now for the next 2 weeks super busy but then we could meet up for coffe some time if you would like.

Re: new friends in Basel

Hi I am working full time in Basel and have a 2.5yr old son as well as being single so it hasnt been easy. I do have every second weekend of however so would be happy to meet up with people on those days. I am finding that the weekends can be difficult as thats when I would love to meet up with people but my friends are often occupied with their partners or families.
So if anyone out there wants to meet up on a weekend, feel free to email me. (ps I am Australian but lived in Basel since May 09 but in Europe since 2003)

Regards
Lors

Re: new friends in Basel

I've been working in Basel for 3 months. I'd be interested in meeting others for lunch/coffee just for a chat and change of scene. It's seems harder to meet up in Basel but maybe it's just because it's been the summer and everyone is away.

Re: new friends in Basel

Hi All,

I am not new to Switzerland, but new to Basel region. I have been living in Zurich for the last 8 years- studied and worked in ZH. I moved recently to work for a company near Basel. I am kind of getting bored with the life-style here..especially I was used my friends' circle in Zurich. Most of them moved elsewhere. I am currently staying in a hotel in Arlesheim and getting really bored. The only thing I get to do here is go for jogging in the neighbourhood. If there are people like me who want to meet up after work..please let me know. My email id is
saykrish@yahoo.com

Cheers,
Krish
