I have lived in Lausanne, Switzerland since 1985.
I was born in Oslo, Norway.
I became a VT member in April 2008, but with different activities going on during the summer, I forgot all about it....... until I received a reminder from VT... and, I'm so glad they sent me one! I love this forum where you can meet so many interesting people sharing the same passion: travellling! I also love learning foreign languages and I'am particularly fond of nature, hiking, walking, cycling and being surrounded by beautiful landscapes and scenery. I also find it very interesting to visit cities.
Switzerland is a nice country where you can find almost everything, except the sea, but the mountains, lakes and forests, small cosy towns and its excellent location in the heart of Europe makes up for it. Switzerland is a very practical base for travelling.
Switzerland is a pretty small country, with 41 285 sq km and about 7 million inhabitants. It is divided into 26 cantons (states) and has 4 official languages, German (68%), French (19%), Italian (8%) and Rhaeto-Romanic (1 %).
This country is in many ways very traditionnal, but at the same time, a very international one, because of all the international organizations, foreign companies and people from all over the world living here.
In a few words - it's a nice place to live:-D
I am planning to build more pages about Switzerland, little by little........
