Laura, 44 years old, writer & journalist
Hi, my name is Laura Spinney and I came to live in Lausanne four years ago. I'm a Londoner, a journalist and a novelist, and I've just published a book all about Lausanne and all the fascinating and diverse people who live here.
Right here at the centre of Europe, you've got all you could ask for in terms of a mix of cultures. It's a cauldron of creativity, with stunning views over Lake Geneva and the French Alps to boot. What more could anyone ask for?
