RE: [expat-125] From the new Organiser

Hi Guys,

 

Hey what about a Winti mountain-bike ride as a meetup?

 

There’s a great track (#33) that officially starts at Winti Bahnhof but goes off road first at Winti-Seen bahnhof.

So Winti-Seen bahnhof is an ideal meeting point.

 

Anyone keen? I like this ride. Lots of forest and rural countryside, very few roads.

 

There’s a nice hilltop (Schauenberg) which is about 1hr ride down the track, a good spot to stop for rest (or lunch), and look at the view.

Then downhill to Turbenthal and down the T?ss back to Winti.

 

It’s also a good track on an evening – very nice and rural and quiet.

 

But it is a mountain bike ride! It does go uphill - and you will sweat…

 

Freundliche Gr?sse / Kind regards,

Hi Simon,

 

Thankyou very much for stepping up to run the WInterthur Expat Group!


I am the one who founded the group and was previous organizer. Quite simply I wasn't paying attention when the renewal came so I was shocked to see it was closing .... and then relieved that you had stepped up. 

Matt   used to be an Assistant Organizer, and Stacy  as well.  Matt just got a new job and Stacy a new baby;  and I am generally out of control with my family and kids and business, so .... it was time for you!

 

Generally drinks on a Friday at Paddy O'Briens was well received, you could try that again.  Or organise tours of Winterthur for newcomers.  WInterthur Tourism might be keen to help. 

 

Wishing you loads of luck and any support I can give,

 

Lisa

ex-organiser!

Hello everyone in the Winterthur Meetup Group

I’m the new organiser for the group. Quite what that entails I don’t yet know, but I’m sure it will be fun finding out. Typically, just as soon as I’d inherited the post, I had to leave Switzerland for a week, hence the delay in introducing myself.

I’m Simon and I moved here with my wife Rebecca just six weeks ago. Rebecca has a job in Winterthur; I’m a freelance journalist hoping to get a work permit.

Previously we lived in Brussels for four years, so we’re quite used to the expat lifestyle, albeit a very different one here.

I’d like some suggestions for possible Meetups, both during the day and in the evening to suit members’ varying commitments. Having been here only a short time, my knowledge of the area is still limited, so all help and advice will be most welcome.

Looking forward to meeting up very soon,

Simon Aughton
