Hi from London moving to Lausanne

Hi everyone,
I am moving to Lausanne in few weeks time The opportunity of new adventure is really exciting me but I am kind of nervous as well. Being alone in a new place is really scary feeling. Any social events or happening places where I can meet people?

Hello deventamu and welcome to the forum.
Thanks lost_inbroad, I was there in Lausanne for the weekend and found its very quiet as compared to London. I am kind of scared to move in and I am scared I'll be lonely. Can you give any suggestions on place to go to meet new people?

Thanks

Re: Hi from London moving to Lausanne

Moving anywhere will have that effect at first. Each time I visit Minimia in Lausanne I see a lot going on for nightlife at least. If you put yourself out there, you will make friends eventually.

Re: Hi from London moving to Lausanne

Hey there,

I get the whole nervous thing. What kind of friendships are you looking for? I ask because the age range on this forum is varied, there is a large community of anglo students who party and then there are professionals that are 30 and 40 and into sports and more calm get togethers. It would help me to help you if you can give me a bit of information about you.

All the best with your move,
Mel

Hi Sarah,

I am glad you've found me. I will relocate to Lausanne at the end of this month. We will definitely meet, until then please do get used to the place and we can explore further more when I arrive

Re: Hi from London moving to Lausanne

There is loads going on here. I always recommend getting yourself to some Glocals events to start with - lots of sport, evenings out, brunches etc. http://www.glocals.com/

Sarah - it's a bit different to Nottingham. No Iberico World Tapas for a start

Re: Hi from London moving to Lausanne

Hi Trailing Hubby, Iberico is pretty amazing- I will miss that place. How long have you been in Lausanne? Any suggestion of good places to go?

Re: Hi from London moving to Lausanne

Been here just over a year now. Plenty of recommendations!!

The Great Escape is a popular bar by the cathedral. Gosses du Quebec and Crazy Canucks are favourites too. Bar Tabac is our favourite place in town - great for coffee and they have 60 Belgian beers for the evening!

Chez Xu is the best Chinese we've found so far. Vapiano is pretty reasonable with food they cook in front of you. Boccalino down in Ouchy does some great pizza. Depends how much you want to spend really... Le Chat Noir does some top food, but considerably more expensive than Iberico!!

I'm slowly doing a blog of places and stuff to do in Lausanne - link
