Meeting expats

Hi, my name's Gene - I'm from Australia and am working in Grand Baie.

I'm a bit concerned since arriving here. There aren't many groups on this site and the ones that exist appear to have nobody attending them ...

I traveled here by myself and would like to meet people to chat/for drinks etc. I only speak English. I'm due to start work next Monday and would like to meet up with similar people before then.

I enjoy football, F1, reading, water sports etc.

Cheers

Hi Gene,

Welcome to Expat.Com  :)

Meeting expats in Grand Baie/the north, shouldn't be a problem. Give yourself some time, you will surely get to know people either from co workers or just by hanging around in Grand Baie, restaurants/pubs, beach and so on. The north is where the majority of expats are afterall  :)

At Expat.Com, we organised a meet up last Thursday in the north. There will be another one soon, i don't know yet when and where, but till then, feel free to have a look at the Events in Mauritius section of the website from time to time to see if anyone is organising something.

All the best,
Bhavna

Thanks, Bhavna!

Good evening, gents! I'm also a newbie to the site and would love to meet a few fellow expatriates! Anyone interested in hiking in particular?
