I just arrived at Lausanne and started my PhD life at EPFL in April. I am looking for new friends here. I have lots of hobbies such as photography, gaming, cycling, hiking, playing badminton and so on. You will find that I am a txpe of people who enjoy life very well. I can speak English and Chinese and am trying to learn la francàs. If you would like to hang out with me in the bar at weekend, or hiking outside, or even learning french togather, please feel free to contact me.

Merci°

Hey guys,

Welcome in Lausanne.

We can set up some hiking/climbing day if you are up for when you are available and around.

Cheers,
Karina

Re: Looking to make new friends in Lausanne or EPFL

We will be new to Lausanne in May as well, so looking for activities to get involved in as well. I’d like to ‘turn over a new leaf’ and try to come out of my shell, so I figure the best way to go about this is to just jump right in when we get there. If I get into any kind of a habit of staying in and not looking for something to do, then it will be hard to break.
I am also into photography (just beginning), cycling, hiking, cooking, etc… I’d like to learn mountain climbing as well. I wasn’t able to find a photography group here at EF that is based in Lausanne, so it would be great to start a sort of group and do some outings. I am very new to it but try every chance I get. DH is interested in almost everything!
There is a night when the Lausanne EFers meet up for drinks, so that is one way to get involved straight away, you can check the calendar for the events.
now that summer is almost here, hopefully there will be loads of outdoor activites to get involved in as well.
Hope you are enjoying your new home thus far.

My husband, our 1 year old daughter, and I will be in Lausanne in May also.

We enjoy hiking, biking, and are just getting into photography with our DSLR.

I minored in French in college, so I may be of some help in learning French!
