Smile New to Bilbao

Hi
I am new to Bilbao. I was wondering if there are any English speaking expats here who would like to get together for some drinks or pintxos. I will be getting married this summer to a Vasco and we wanted to live close to his family. I am Canadian, but my origins and English and Bangladeshi. I have lived in Spain for 3.5 years, in Mallorca and Barcelona. Since I have been in Bilbao, I haven´t heard a word of English. Would be nice to make some new English speaking friends.

Default Re: New to Bilbao

As Concierge for the Spanish section of BE I would like to say hello and welcome.

BE is a very large expat website, so if you have problems finding your way around we have concierges who will try to direct you. The moderators for the Spanish forums are Mitzyboy and Fred James, moderators are there to ensure that the site runs smoothly within the rules of BE. Problems and complaints should always be addressed to a moderador who will look into the matter and deal with it efficiently and fairly. Our members who post in the Spain Forums are friendly and helpful with a wealth of knowledge of the issues of living in Spain. At the top of the page you will find a quirkily named thread called Free Beer which is full of important and useful information. Hope you enjoy your time participating in the forums.

Please let me know if you need any further help.

Rosemary

Not hearing a word of English can be an advantage sometimes!!
I'm English (father was Maltese), married to a Basque since 1975, worked in England in the Agriculture industry, but only retired here in Sept 2009.

Currently learning Basque twice a week, for punishment!!

We live in Elorrio (near Durango), in the house where my wife was born!

We normally come to Bilbao about once every few weeks for a treat.
Perhaps we could meet up then.
Going to Israel next Friday for an 11 day organised trip.

Will be in touch.
