Morning all

Hiya

I'm Claire, from South Africa, and I've been in Lausanne for one whole week!

I'm what you lot call a "trailing spouse", and in-between trawling this forum to make sure I don't ask something that has been already answered (cost of living anyone?), I wander the streets trying to figure out what to eat that doesn't involve bread/pastry!

Okay, as you were

Re: Morning all

Welcome to the Forum.

Nice to have someone who actually reads what we write about looking for stuff before asking the old, old questions again.

Hope you enjoy settling in. Can be a bit confusing sometimes (British understatement). Being in the Romandie you have a slight advantage over us in the German speaking part because of the dialect here which rocks many High German speakers back on their heels when they realise they don't understand a single word of what the natives are saying. .

Lots of EF folk in your region so hope you meet up with some friendly folk soon. I trust you find something to eat soon.

Re: Morning all

Hi there!

I am also here, in Lausanne, with my husband job, arrived in October and just beginning to feel ok about being a trailing spouse!

I never thought I would manage to fill my time at first but actually I am now starting to enjoy myself.

Send me a private message if you fancy meeting up for a coffee and a chat sometime.

Good luck finding non bread based snacks and watch out for that chocolate!
