Hi all,

Hello everyone,
Flora Gross here living happily in Switzerland.

Hello, my name is Derrick, i am a professional Athlete and have played in a few different countries at high levels. I am engaging in a international project to bring Elite and professional trainers to Switzerland with high level skills to help the youth development and mentorship to cater to those who have passion and simply enjoy the game of basketball. I am hosting a series of camps that will be public at College Reymond Arnold in Pully in April over Easter break with a atmosphere more known to expats.  Looking forward to networking and having some support and building a great event for all to enjoy. And publicising this for expats as an alternative for those who have children who would be interested.
contact us here, or by email xxxx for more information.

Hi All!
My name is Erin and I am moving to Switzerland in December, from Dublin, Ireland. I will be working in Boudry but I hope to live in Lausanne.
I am hoping to get involved in as many social events/ activities as possible and hopefully make some new friends! My accommodation is likely to be in Neuchatel for the short term while I try and find a room/ small apartment in Lausanne so I will be keeping the ear to the ground for something suitable! Any advice on settling in is very much appreciated, particularly as I do not have French (but I am hoping to learn) and this is a concern of mine!

Hi Elena,
I would like to say Hi to you. I am new in Lausanne and looking for some friends...
