Hey, thanks for the reply. My German is completely fluent, so no problems there
I have worked in Stuttgart on and off for 4 years while still returning to London inbetween. Now I have had to actually move to Karlsruhe permanently do I find myself really searchiing for other 'like minded' people as I have left my group that I have been with for the last 6-7 years.
I have found a good monthly meet in Heidelberg which I am going to attend and will keep you posted on how it goes. Thanks foor the advice.
