  • About me: Originally from Latvia, in 2011 I and my partner moved to London.

It was official – we were living in a hamster wheel (work, eat, commute). Then, in late 2017, an opportunity came around and we were offered to live in a small village in the Swiss Alps. After some serious bursts of sadness and happiness (more from me than my partner) we came to a decision. It was a YES. A month and a half later we moved to Switzerland.
