London to Lausanne

Hi!

My names Naunidh (people call me "Nauni") and have very recently moved from London to Lausanne. Reason being that I have just started a PhD in physics at EPFL (I'm not a geek...honestly), so in Lausanne for at least the next 4 years, quite scary yet nonetheless exciting. Hope this does not sound too generic, but stuff I like:

-music (particularly live-good djs/electronic and bands, festivals, but really open to everything)
-Running, skiing, hiking, looking to embrace more outdoor activities (e.g. climbing) with these wonderful surroundings.
-Food + drink: cooking, checking out restaurants, cheese boards, geeking out on beer and pretending I know something about wine.
-Football (big man utd fan) & rugby
-Reading and cultural activities (going to museums etc)

Enjoy being socially active and checking out new things, but having moved on my own, haven't met a huge amount of people yet. So can't wait to get stuck into lausanne/swiss life.
Look forward to meeting you.

Nauni

Re: London to Lausanne

Nauni,

Well you've landed in a good spot for most of what you list.

Lausanne and Vaud has a pretty vibrant music scene.

Re: London to Lausanne

Forgot to mention, some of us are going to the cheese and wine night (have a look in the events calendar) tonight and then off to some bars afterwards - I'm meeting people for the first time and I'm pretty sure a lot of other people are in the same boat, so why don't you come along if you're free!

Re: London to Lausanne

Thanks for the welcome guys!

Belinda/B, great news that you are at epfl and the shared interests! Definitely up for a coffee/drink or something. Yea I'm in two weeks as well, starting to fell a little over whelmed...

Re tonight, yes have just seen that and keen for both. Though not 100% sure whether I will be able to make it in time for the cheese and wine thing but will try, if not hopefully see you at the bar!

Nauni
