The little (i) in online!

Expat adventures

Expats are flexible creatures. It’s an essential life skill for adapting to different locales, customs and languages. You quickly learn that every country has its pluses and minuses. Brilliant housing, but hideous traffic. Great weather, but high rents.

Expat adventures

I adore jigsaw puzzles. I can lose myself in them, spending hours utterly absorbed as the image reveals itself piece by piece by piece. Years before we moved to the Saanenland I was given a large puzzle of a Swiss chalet.

Changing the shape of the editorial does have a reason. We chose a more square shape this time to allow space for the ad below, which is important for the magazine. To the ones who actually read the editorial, I feel like adding a word or two.
