girls coffee met in buderim area
 
hi there, I arrive in august and have been in perth for 18mths. I went to the expats coffee met when i first arrived to be honest its not something i would of done in the uk but you've got to get out there noones going to come knocking on your door so after 2 months i finally went and to my surprise i have made many fanastic friends who i will really miss when i move. What made me laugh is all the girls there said the same its not their usual way of making friends !!!!

Is there a regular coffee met ? we are planning on settling in the buderim area.

I moved to Bayside, Brisbane 18 months ago and set up a weekly coffee meeting there after posting on here and it is still going strong :)
I have now moved to Buderim and would love to join or orgainise a similar meet. Perhaps one lunchtime a week.
Anyone interested? :)

A mixture - either 30 or 40 something. Some with kids - young, old and some without. Everyone is easy going and has one thing in common - emigrating to Oz!

Hey - love the sound of these meets - new to Maloolaba and both eager to mingle. 'Laudami' - drag me out as an exercise partner when you get here!! We have been here for just over a year where we lived in Brisbane until a few weeks ago, and I haven't put my trainers on since we arrived!! A 9 mth pregnancy in that time is a little defence, but that said, with the extra layers a pregnancy leaves behind someone out there needs to force me into those trainers. But of course I would much rather drink coffee and/or wine with you :rofl:
Let us know about any meets as we would love to join you all ....

Re: girls coffee met in buderim area
 
You will be here before you know it! :teeth_smile:
Your choice of areas to live are all amazing places - be ready to find it almost impossible to choose. I haven't sniffed out any exercise classes yet as I am still somewhat in denial about the need to exercise :rofl: - this area is a bit inconsiderate though at making you feel guilty - take a stroll along the front at any given time past 5pm and you find yourself in the rush hour traffic of joggers - really, can't they do it in private!! I will be joining the girls for coffee next Friday in Buderim - so hope to see you there soon.....
