London -> Lausanne

Hi all,

I'm a recent Computer Science BSc graduate who has just found work in Lausanne area and is now urgently looking for anywhere to stay (temporary, long-term, couch even). I start work on 12th November well I'm signing the contract on this date but I want to start ASAP as I plan to take a week off for Christmas.

I'm able to speak enough French to get by, I spent 14-months working in CERN as part of my placement and tried to speak it everyday. I did my interview in French and will be working mostly in French too.

I don't smoke, I'm 24 years old, I enjoy snowboarding (and plan to try and find time this season to get back up on the mountains!), I'm pretty sociable and enjoy exploring new places (as well as cultures). I've lived in Whistler, BC, Canada for a year before I started University and I've travelled to places like Ethiopia, Kenya, Slovakia, Spain etc.

Hope to be able to come to an EF event soon (I suppose there'll be one in Lausanne area).

Re: London -> Lausanne

Thanks guys

I'll be visiting a place tomorrow (currently living in Thoiry so the journey to work is about 2 hours via Bus -> Tram -> Train -> Metro), so fingers crossed all goes well.

If anyone knows of anything let me know, even any temporary place I can crash at (even just a couch for a week) could do. Then I'll be able to easily visit apartments in Lausanne.
