Hi Lisav

Your post was some time ago and im assuming you are now living happily in Parma. We are due to move in Feb with my 2 year old daughter and i wanted to get any advice on any toddler groups you may have found? Or expat groups?

I hope your move went well!

Bev

can anyone tell me about the mosquitos. We are moving to Parma from Northern California. I keep hearing about the Tiger Mosquitos that are out spring, summer, fall and morning that feed during the day as well as at night.

My daughter and I are highly allergic to the bite. So much so that I ended up in the hospital last year from a mosquito bite.

We heard that there are less mosquitos in the city center but the only homes we've seen with screens are on the outskirts of town - more in the country.

Also, if they are basically all year round and all day and night we will not be able to enjoy the outdoors.

I was looking so forward to this and now I am terrified to move.

Help!

Hello to everybody!

I'm sorry I'm participating in this forum although I'm not an International Expat. I moved to Parma 6 years ago from Milan. My father is Italian and my mom American (from California, more precisely). I have two lovely boys aged 4 & 1 and I'm trying to teach them English. The problem is they don't get any stimulus apart from me as they don't have, for instance, any English speaking friends to play with. I myself would love to have some new international friend! I think it would be fun to meet once in a while for a language/cultural exchange.
Do you know if there is any english speaking moms club/kids clubs?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Diana

Hi Diana & everyone else,

I live about 30 minutes away from Parma and I'm looking as well for a few international friends. I moved to Parma 2 years ago from Dublin where I was living for almost 4 years (although I'm originally from Germany), my boyfriend is from the area so we decided to make the move.
If you are interested in meeting up once in a while just drop me a line, I'd be pleased to hear from you!

I have never been to the north of Italy-- Every time we go, which is usually once a year for a couple weeks, we go to Naples. I was just wondering if there was anyone out there living in or near Parma that has any advice. Also, if you know of any baby groups that exist. I speak fluent Italian, so any resources that anyone knows of in either Italian or English would be helpful.

Thanks a lot!! Hope to hear from someone.
Hello,
are you still living in Parma?

Sorry
Diana

Well, I don't' know what happened, maybe there was some "system problem" and I couldn't send my original message. Here it is!

Hello there! I was really glad to read your post, thank you!
Where exactly in the Parma area are you leaving? Do you have any children?
It would be great to meet you. How can we arrange it? Hope to hear from you soon! Take care Diana

PS. If any other expat reading this message is interested, please drop me a line!
