While we were staying in Lausanne, little did we know our friend Laurent, who we lived with in New Zealand currently lived about a half an hour away. On our last full day he picked us up and we went to his flat to have a pancake brunch before wandering around his small town and then heading into the mountains.
Well, it’s been over a month because I’ve been busy adventuring in-between working.
