First week in Lausanne
Hi. I have just arrived in Switzerland this weekend and so far so good! I have taken a contract with Nestle in Bussigny and it would be great to hear from anyone in a similar position who would like to meet or chat about their experience so far. Would be good to find someone to explore this fantastic place with. Also looking for advice on a good language school in the area for evening classes. Anyone interested please message me. Hope to hear back soon. Thanks. Darrell

Re: First week in Lausanne
Welcome Darrell - you picked a really nice week-end to arrive in Lausanne- as the whole Riviera has sprung into Spring! And you've picked a really nice and friendly part of Switzerland - enjoy. Where are you from btw?

Re: First week in Lausanne
Thanks Amaraya, will check it out. Do you know of any current social meets for people in my position?

Re: First week in Lausanne
off hand i don't know but i'd suggest asking around nestle and there are always a ton of english speakers at bars like the great escape and the etoile blanche. look on the calendar here and you may see something, or better yet, set up an event yourself, even if just for drinks or a walk around lausanne to discover your new home!
best of luck!:)

Welcome in Lausanne, I arrived recently like you :)

Where is the Great Escape ? :)

Re: First week in Lausanne
The Great Escape can be found up if you walk from Place Riponne up the staircase towards the Lausanne Cathedral, it's on a terrace just a flight of stairs up. Riponne/Bejart is a M2 subway station and has exits less than 50m from the Great Escape bar. There's also an underground car park at Riponne if you're driving.

Re: First week in Lausanne
if you go to the place de la riponne on a thursday, friday or saturday (summer, any day) evening, you'll hear lot's of voices from above- look up, walk up the steps, there's the great escape!

maybe it's time for a lausanne happy hour event?:D
