Los Angeles to Lausanne

Just moved to Lausanne from Los Angeles, CA on Feb 5th. Excited for the future and new experiences, even though the first few days have been difficult trying to adjust (need to work on my french). I'm working locally and should be here for the next several years. Looking forward to maybe meeting some new people, although i've never done a online forum before, so we shall see...

Hope this message finds everyone in good health and spirits.

Best,

Doug

Re: Los Angeles to Lausanne

Hello Doug,
Welcome to Switzerland and English Forum
You will find quite a bit of useful information here as well as bi-linguals and fellow expats.
Do check out the Social & Commerical events and consider it quite worth it to travel to Zurich or Basel too when there's a fun event on.
I've never regretted it, there are some really nice people on EF.

Hope you enjoy your stay
cheers,

Re: Los Angeles to Lausanne

Doug, bienvenue!

You'll get on just fine. Beach action here in summer different than the LA scene.

Live music scene in Lausanne is excellent, and Cully Jazz Festival end of March.

Also great jazz club Chorus right below Mon Repos indoor swimming pool. Some Thursday nights are free entry (occasionally Friday). Check out their website http://www.chorus.ch/Chorus_Cadre.htm, and Cully's Jazz Fest too. It is a great jazz event; way way cool vibe and location on lake to die for. http://www.cullyjazz.ch/

Bon chance

Tiny_Tim

Re: Los Angeles to Lausanne

Welcome...Lausanne is a good transition city for someone from LA, IMO...A lot of small villages & towns in Suisse and so the contrast can be tough for most Americans otherwise

You're in a great position to visit a lot of amazing spots in Suisse, as well...Nothing quite like that breathtaking view as you make the turn on the freeway into Vevey & Montreux heading north
