Last Friday Night in July….

Hi gang, Just a quickie to say that we’re meeting up this evening (Friday, 30th July) for after-work, start of the summer holiday drinks. Tables booked inside at Eiscafé Pìu, Maximillianstrasse, from 6.30pm. Indoors because it looks like it might rain later on and I don’t want you guys to get wet. Valerio has to close by 9pm at the latest but there’s nothing to stop us going on somewhere else afterwards. Looking forward to seeing everybody :-) Amanda

We’re back!

Hi everyone. I’m really pleased to be able to say that we can resume with our meetings, after the longest hiatus in our history! Thankfully, the Covid incidence rate in Lindau has dropped right down so I made a quick decision to plan in some get-togethers, particularly for those of you who have been pining for a bit of company again. Our first meet-up is at lunchtime today (Saturday, 26th June), at ‘ONU’ restaurant, at the Inselhalle Lindau. A table is booked from 12 o’clock and if more than ten of us turn up, they will organise further tables. I … Continue Reading →

November Lockdown

Once again, we find ourselves in lockdown. I hope everyone is staying safe and making the best of an otherwise beautiful autumn. Needless to say, there will be no Ex-Pat events scheduled for the month of November, but if all goes well, perhaps we will be able to meet up around Christmas time. We will keep you all posted the best we can. Until then, take care and snuggle up with a cozy blanket, a hot cup of tea and a good book. See you in December, hopefully. Best regards, Rachel Carroll

September Get-Togethers

Now that we have started to get back into our usual routine of regular meetings, it’s amazing how quickly the time has speeded up again. It feels like no sooner have I posted one month, that it’s time to sit down to compose the next one! I hope that you’re all well and that those of you who have been on holiday, or even had just a bit of time off at home, are now feeling rejuvenated and ready for the autumn. We have two meetings again this month. Our Coffee Club is going to be in “Mokka”, Maximillianstrasse (next … Continue Reading →

August Beer Garden Meet-Up

Thanks to those of you who came along to our Coffee Club get-together last weekend at 37 Grad. It’s always a lovely place to sit and while away an hour or two. We will be back at the harbour for our forthcoming Friday night out, as we’ve got tables booked at the beer garden belonging to Zur Alten Werft. Come along from 7pm on Friday, 28th August. If you don’t know where it is, it’s at the far end of the harbour, past the Lindauerhof Hotel and behind the trees. If the weather is not so great then we’ll be … Continue Reading →

Back again after Lockdown!

Hello everyone, after many months of Covid-induced lockdown. What a year it’s been so far! I am sorry that there has been such a long pause between my last newsletter and this one, however I’m sure that you will all understand that with us not being able to get together and with no cinemas open, concerts to see, etc. that there was little point in putting pen to paper, or rather, fingers to keyboard. Times of uncertainty and change bring us back to what is most elemental and crucial. Health, having people around who care for you, a home, food, … Continue Reading →

February Night-Out

It’s always good to get out of the house in the winter, rather than spend another evening holed up indoors, although it does take a certain amount of motivation, I know. Our next night out will be on Friday, 28th February in the ‘Bockstube’ which is the ground floor bar of Hotel Engel, Schafgasse 4 and I hope that I can see lots of you there. I have booked the whole place for us, from 7pm and as it’s one of their busiest nights of the week it took a bit of persuasion to convince them that we will fill … Continue Reading →

Annual Quiz Night…..taking our minds off Brexit

Tonight is our annual quiz night and a chance to get those grey cells working, at “37 Grad”, Lindau Harbour. I’ve booked the large room at the front from 7pm and I’m hoping that lots of you will be able to make what is probably our highlight of the year. Quizmaster Mike will be testing our memory and general knowledge. You can take part either on your own or in pairs and there’ll be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Please bring along some small change for the modest entrance fee and a pen or pencil for filling in … Continue Reading →

Post-Xmas walk + cafe meeting

Hello everyone, We’ll be meeting for the last time this year on Friday, 27th December. I’ve planned for us to meet outside the main train station entrance between 2.20 and 2.30pm. We’re then going to take a stroll across the island, taking in the always impressive nativity scene in St Stephan’s church, as well as paying a visit to the oak tree that we donated to the town to mark our 10th anniversary. Finally we can enjoy a restorative coffee or tea, and perhaps a cake or two, in the cosy surroundings of Café Vogler in Inselgraben. Please let me … Continue Reading →
