A friend of mine and fellow expat recently told me she’d created a Meetup group for women who like to climb. It also reminded me to follow through on the same idea which I’d let slip after moving. It’ll take a while to get mine going, particularly as I also organize a board game night for English speaking expats too. Below are the links for anyone thinking of joining.
