Hello from Pitesti


My family and I (husband and 5month old son, Arne) have recently relocated to Pitesti, Romania. We are from Belgium but have been living in Gabon, Central Africa for the last years, and have now just moved to Pitesti for my husbands job.

I'm looking to meet new people in the region. I would love to get to know Pitesti and Bucharest better, so i can find my way around. But most of all, i would love to meet other families and find fun activities to do with my son.

On first glance, Romania looks like an interesting country but i'm finding it difficult to find my way around. Anybody got any good tips on how to learn the language and what activities are on for us expats?

Hope to hear from you!
Kind regards,

Hi Joëlle and welcome to Expat.com! :)
Wishing you success in this new adventure!

Thank you Arlette!

So does anyone know the best way to get in contact with families with young children? Playgroups or simular things?

I hear there is a french expat group in Pitesti but have not found any coordinates. Anyone got some info?

Have a nice day,

are you still living in Pitesti?

Unfortunately we have relocated to Bucharest since the children are now going to international school.

There should however still be a part of the French expat group there (afb). You can find them on http://www.bucarestaccueil.com/?page=37. It is via them that I found my way around there.

If you need any further info, pls do ask.

Kind regards,
