Are you sticking around this week or hitting the road for Ascension? Well, the good news is, if you’re staying in Lausanne there are LOADS of fun things to do that all have us feeling like summer is just around the corner.

We also have to give a HUGE shoutout to our friend and fellow Lausanne resident, Gregoire Courtine, who is a finalist for the global Rolex Awards! Congrats G! We honestly don’t know a man who has more passion (and works more hours) than this guy–and he needs YOUR VOTE to win, which will enable him to get the funding to keep helping paralyzed people walk again. It’s super easy, just click on this link (it literally takes a second…and don’t forget to spread the word)!

Monday

Did you know we have delicious crustaceans right here in Lac Leman? And you can go try them out at a special aperitif hosted at the Brasserie de Montbenon in collaboration with Lausanne à Table this Monday from 17-19h.
