I am quite new on this forum but I have been living in Essen for almost a year. I propose to meet once a while on breakfast during the weekends. I just randomly propose a date Protected content some appropriate time. There are quite few restaurants in Essen. Since Essen is almost in the middle of Ruhr Gebiet it is not that difficult for the people living in Bochum, Recklinghausen, Oberhausen, Duisburg and Dortmund to join.
Cheers! Looking forward to hear from your end! Raza
