Hello!

I moved to Thessaloniki a few weeks ago and am looking to meet some fellow English speakers! I am PhD student conducting dissertation research at an archaeological lab near the PAOK soccer stadium, though I live near the Kamara.

Are there any groups that meet for coffee or drinks?

Thanks!
Katie

Just so this reads less like a personal ad, I am happily married and just looking to meet some new people in Thessaloniki :)

Hi Katie, welcome to Thessaloniki.

I live outside of the city in Panorama but venture down quite a few times. There is a fairly large community of Ex-Pats in the area but not many meet up, except for the Mother and Toddler Groups.

How long are you staying in Greece? I can probably arrange to meet up as it only takes me half an hour to get there.

I am free this Sunday and anytime next week. What's better for you? A weekday evening (I work until around 6 each day) or a weekend meetup?

Looking forward to meeting you!

Katie ~ Hi! I've been coming to Thessaloniki for 8 years now, somewhere b/tween 3- 6 months each year in the winter. It's so hard to meet people here. My partner is Greek American and speaks fluent Greek. I, however have been here so many years and can speak nothing. We live in Kifisia/Kalamaria. Would love to get together for coffee or wine or dinner. We'll be here 'til end of April. B in touch. Ciao, TIM

Hi Tim! Thanks for your message. It's comforting to know that others have had trouble meeting people, too! I love Kalamaria and would be happy to meet for a meal or drink anytime. This weekend is booked, but next weekend is wide open! Let me know.

Katie ~ Nick & I would love to get together next weekend. How is friday evening? This site wouldn't let me leave my email address because I haven't made four post(???). Is it secure to leave me your phone number and I'll call you next week with details. If not, perhaps you can send me your email address. Thanks so much for being in touch. Look forward to meeting you. TIM

Tim -- Unfortunately, I've just been notified that my final meeting for my residence permit is next Friday in Athens. Could we do dinner on Friday, March 5, instead?

My email address is kmswinford at gmail dot com. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi Katie, sorry for the delay in replying.

If you want to meet up for a coffee or if it's ok with Tim and Nick I could probably join you on the 5th March. Next week is hell for me with my photography business and also the English Teaching.

I'll drop you an email so you have my Email as a contact.
