Hello guys! It's us - Sonja and Jerry. We are a couple, trying to stay healthy in a world full of stress, pressure, competition and unhealthy food. Huh, that's a bit negative, right? Let's start again. We are a couple, dreaming of a life with purpose and deep meaning. Travelling, adventure and outdoor activities are the three things we love the most. From the educational point of view, I have a Master degree in International Business, while Jerry has graduated from Social Informatics (Statistics). We are both good in analytics. Besides that, we consider ourselves as people with a healthy lifestyle, what means, spending a lot of time outdoors, doing sports, eating organic food, drinking a lot of water and relaxing.
We used to live in Slovenia until 2012. A great time and a beautiful country, but starving for new experiences, we decided to make a change. In 2012, we packed our stuff and moved abroad - to Switzerland. Why Switzerland? Oh, I forgot to mention. I'm half Slovenian, half Swiss. I was raised bilingual. That is why I didn't have the language barrier problems as many people who move abroad may face. However, we're struggling with other stuff which we're going to write about on this blog. Nevertheless, we experienced what leaving our home country, family and friends means and learned how to organise a new life in a foreign country. Besides the challenge of living abroad, we experience day after a day how it is to work abroad. We are trying to figure out, what a perfect work-life balance would be and how to stay healthy and find our inner balance. To do so, we found three things which makes us satisfied and fulfils our lives:
- adventurous travelling around the globe
- eating healthy
- hiking, cycling, yoga, kayaking, hammocking and taking photos with our camera and drone
OUR QUESTIONS TO YOU
Are you looking for a new life abroad? How would it be if you packed your stuff and lived in a new country?
How do you deal with the daily work-life situation? Have you found your balance yet?
Let us ask you, how do you keep yourself healthy? Any secrets you have?
Are you passionate about travelling? Why do you travel? Are you more kind of an adventurous traveller?

Maybe you want to move to the hidden gem of Europe, called Slovenia and you need some more information about life and tourism attractions or even overlooked secret places, then this site is perfect for you!
If you are an adrenaline junkie and currently looking for some active vacation ideas, maybe we can help with some ideas what country to explore and what to do there.

Finally, Jerry met a dinosaur... Too bad it wasn't friendly:)
Sonja (Tuesday, 17 June 2014 12:55)
Jerry was sooo happy to see the dinosaur.. but unfortunately, the dinosaur didn't feel his love and attacked him immediately. However, Jerry is still alive. And his love to dinosaurs? It didn't go away :)

Hi, I like your blog a lot! I also moved to another country, Belgium. I have been living here my 6th year now and I think that moving out of my home country, was the best decision I have ever made. I have met many interesting people from all over the world, learned a lot including improving my French, learnt to be more independent as I was alone in the beginning, discovered so many new places and tastes... I think it opens your eyes once living abroad and it makes you stronger in certain point of view. I just miss some more sun and natural wonders here in Belgium but every country has its pros and cons :) Slovenia and Switzerland are beautiful countries, I am happy to read more about those on your blog!
Sonja (Friday, 26 February 2016 17:13)
Hey Michaela! Thanks for visiting my site. I'm happy that you like your new life in Belgium! It is such a courageous and rewarding move to go and live abroad! When you move abroad, you start to appreciate the little things you had back home but you also welcome the new things in your life. Hope to meet you in Switzerland or Slovenia one day ;)

Hi guys!!! I ended in your blog while looking for lakes to discover in Switzerland and... I found out our stories and inner drives so similar that made me want to meet you guys for a coffee!! We also love adventure, travel to off-the-beaten track spots in the world, stay healthy, personal growth, sports, take care of the environment... It's been 3,5 years now that we moved to Switzerland and the 1st year was also tought! at least for me where all the burocracy and appartment search is soooo diferent than from my country of origin, Spain!! we sold all our staff in 2012, 2 years after we met in Barcelona, and travel sabbatical for a few months around Asia with the ligthest backpacks we could made at that moment... (althought the journey taught us that we could have done it even lighter and that's what we are doing now!!) without a pre-planned end destination, just following what we want and feel... and here we ended! living in Nyon and I love it while we continue travelling! It's been fun to meet you virtually, wish you continue with such joy and spirit!!
Sonja (Tuesday, 12 September 2017 10:24)
Sorry for my very late reply :/
Thanks for reading our blog! Means a lot! That's great that you have the same inner drives as we do! I think stories like that make us feel more connected. Yes, living in Switzerland can be also tough sometimes, I totally agree. The bureaucracy is quite challenging :) We haven't been to Nyon yet, is it a beautiful city to explore? Would love to go there once. We're always open for a coffee! Zurich is a good place for that too:)

GET YOUR EX HUSBAND/WIFE QUICKLY AND PERMANENTLY.
My name is Emily from the USA. My husband left me for another woman. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back. I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called Dr Zuman and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 24hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 14hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened. He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him. That was how we started living together happily again. Thanks to Dr Zuman . If you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr. Zuman for help now.
Here his contact...WhatsApp: +2347044710256,

Recovering lost Bitcoin can require unique hacking skills and expertise that are possessed by only a handful of professional hackers. While there are many recovery websites out there, it’s important to be cautious as 99% of them are operated by scammers who try to appear legitimate. Instead, it’s best to seek out a trusted hacker like patrick benard Wizard who can help you recover your funds. They were able to recover $159k worth of BTC that I had lost to bitcoin mining. To get in touch with patrick , you can email them at email@example.com or message them on WhatsApp at +31630291166
