Hello! Arriving in Lausanne on Saturday!

Hello one and all, especially the Lausanne people!

I'm arriving in Lausanne on Saturday (9th Feb) afternoon on a year or two contract with an energy trading company. All happened a bit quickly, two weeks ago i was considering going back to London and this thing turned up.

Anyway, bit about me, I'm an Irish national, but 1/2 Irish and 1/2 Asian (oriental for you UK guys). Been working in Brussels for the past year, before that in London and NewYork, mostly in banking.

Anyway...I'll join up with the Lausanne contacts list and hope to meet up with a few of you soon!


Mark

ps: this may seem a strange question but does anyone know any good skateboard spots around Lausanne? Been skating for almost 20 years so still like to smash myself up as often as possible!

Re: Hello! Arriving in Lausanne on Saturday!

Welcome to the forum and to Lausanne. It's an awesome place, and I'd take it over London any day.

You'll be happy to learn that there's a serious skate park in Lausanne called La Fièvre. There's also a smaller outdoor skate park down by the lake called the Bowl de Vidy. You'll find that skateboarding is a very popular activity here, and well tolerated.

See you next Thursday at our pub night? (I'll be posting it in the calendar soon.)

Cheers,

Heather

Re: Hello! Arriving in Lausanne on Saturday!

you've made a great choice Mark....this is without any doubt the best bit of Switzerland and you're going to love it...after 24 years I'm still amazed at my good fortune in ending up here....like you it happened rather by chance...but watch out...I'm not the only one who came for a short stay and never got round to leaving!

Hi Mark!
I'm also arriving in Lausanne this Saturday. My girlfriend Anna and I would be happy to meet up with you for some explorations or hopefully we'll run into you at one of the pub nights.
Nathaniel.
