Just moved from England

Hi everyone,

Iím Victoria and Iíve just moved here from England. Iím currently living in the Lausanne area.

Tomorrow I am going to enrol in French lessons and start looking for work. I have an insurance (travel) background.

Do you guys ever have any local meets to make new friends?

Thank you ☺️

Actually, there isn't anything regular over here like those in Bern or Zurich do, though there are starting to be enough of us here in Lausanne to make that worthwhile. Would you like to organize something some evening?

Re: Just moved from England

www.glocals.com is pretty active it that area. Lots of folks organise events from Lausanne down to Geneva so register and take part in a few of those.

Theres always meetup which is everywhere. And Internations if you fancy some horray Henry drinking champagne he cant afford chatting sh?te

A friend of mine has the Irish bar down there, McCarthy's and thats pretty social for an expat crowd (which you may be looking for or looking to avoid)

Re: Just moved from England

Welcome to Lausanne! When I first moved to the area I was having difficulty making new friends but joined the 'Lausanne (Vaud & Geneva) ladies meetup' facebook group, it might be a great option to meet new people over coffee, drinks, dinner, outdoor activities!

Internations?
Don't know whether it is very active or not in Lausanne, but it usually works so nice to meet new (international) people.
