I've been living and working in Trieste for a few months now, and I'm loving it here. Europe is certainly a more laid back place to work, (previously to working here, I worked in Asia and Latin America, which are both hectic places to live and work).
Anyways, as much as I am enjoying living here, the one thing I am having issues with is making friends. It just seems that there is a hurdle whenever it comes to meeting new people here. Part of that might be the language issue, as I don't speak Italian fluently, (I am learning). And while I enjoy working with the people I work with, they are (for the most part), women in their mid 50's, and I'm in my early 30's, so there's not much in common there
So, I'm turning to this forum to ask if anyone here knows of any groups for expats in the Trieste area? Or maybe a bar or two where expats tend to hang out? Just someplace where I can get my foot in the door and hopefully start to start some friendships?
