Hello Priscilla :)

Hi I am an aussie living in A Coruna looking to meet up with new people, In and around Coruna.


I've also just moved to coruña from the UK.  How you finding it?


Cheers for the message, I have been living in Coruna for 11 months now I  was living in the UK before in London.
Which part of the UK have you come from? Coruna is a nice city different pace of life to big city living, I like it here. Its very different part of Spain in relation to immersing yourself in the culture I promise that in no time your Spanish will improve here there is no choice but to speak it... lol How long are you gonna stay here for?

Im starting to pick up Spanish already.  My family have lived here for 20 years as my dad is from Vigo.  I'm here for good, I may relocate to Barcelona at the end of summer to work but for now I'm relaxing and enjoying the sun when it decides to shine.  I'm from London, Ladbroke Grove.  How long are you here for.  Are you working over here?  I'm on Whatsapp, ++++  What's your name by the way?

Hi. Visiting coruna after doing the Camino. Any ideas what to do Saturday here, how to meet people?


How long are you here for?  Are you staying in Coruna?

The nightlife on Coruna is pretty good to be honest as long as you know the places to go.

You're more than welcome to come out with us if you like.


Do you guys find there to be a high amount of expats where you are?

Its definetely worth it , proper lifestyle change i reckon You love it..... Galicia is a Nice part of Spain.

I live in a little town of A Coruna province in Galicia, Palmeira (near Ribeira), and it is astonishing how many foreigners (did not know when I came here)  live in Galicia. Like a secret hiding place. Galicia is very private and finding much and accurate, up to date information about it on the Internet is tough. Perfect place for individualists.
In my otherwise Galician street alone 7 out of 20 houses are inhabited by Americans and/or Galicians who became Americans. New York alone has a community of over 50,000 Galicians. An American collects money here for the local fiestas.  :)

Hello all!

I am from The Netherlands and I will be living in La Coruña starting from January 2016. What is the city like? And the people? I am a little nervous actually! Ofcourse, I'll be happy to meetup in January 2016.


Stefan, welcome in January. I am Dutch and American. and have been living almost a year in A Coruna province about 1 hour from La Coruna near Ribeira.
Why did you move here and why are you nervous?


Yes, I feel a little unsure. I basically have a great job opportunity in La Coruña, but when I look at the city at google maps and read stories it sometimes comes across as a somewhat dull place. I haven't seen any parties, young people, etc. Also, I read that it is extremely hard to integrate with the people there and make friends. Is that true? I am a 26 year old male.
