Hello, I'm Rose and new to Lausanne, say hello :)
 
21, from Hertfordshire, England, moved here just over 3 weeks ago.
Just finished my English degree in Nottingham and fancied a year of something totally different before `real life'..so here I am, au pairing in Lausanne!Totally alone (and am learning, but currently don't speak the language)!Would love to hear from anyone in Switzerland :)

Hello.

Welcome to town it's a nice place for the most part. You should use your newness to gather all of us to wander about and show off this place we call home :)

Well if you were asking me, I'm a post-doc at EPFL and I've been here for three months. Dunno what to tell you about the other person...

Re: Hello, I'm Rose and new to Lausanne, say hello :)
 
haha, yes I was asking you, you could have made up a whole story about the other person..but that would have been pointless.
so, you like it here?met many people?where abouts do you live exactly?x

You never know. So far so good. I haven't really been here long enough to know if I can just tolerate it here, mostly like it, or really love it... Well, I've met the people who work on the same floor as me. They don't let us sciency folk out of the lab much. They're afraid we'll scare the locals... I live in an apartment, on a bus line, between work and fun.

Welcome to Switz. I don't speak the language yet either and what works best for me so far, is just to smiling and nodding.

Fixed that for you. AFAIK this country is not referred to as Switz, Swiss, Swissie, etc.

And yes, welcome to Rose. Enjoy your stay in the land of chocolate and cheese.

Welcome, and beware, I know a lady who came here to do something different for 1 year too, that was in 1993 :D

No Regrets ;)

Welcome to beautiful Lausanne, Rose! If you haven't done it yet be sure to take a cruise on the Lake in the coming weeks as the vineyards will be turning gorgeous autumn colours soon. The "boucle Ouchy-Montreux/Château de Chillon" is the best route.

Hey,
Welcome in Lsn!

I see you work as an au-pair. I hope everything is OK with the family etc.

I just reminded my 'old times' when being an au pair in here few years ago :)
