We are a couple living and working in Switzerland, without any of us actually being swiss. Jakob is a half danish, half dutch man, 27 years of age, a musician who particularly works with choirs - both with conducting and singing. Aina is half finnish, half norwegian, 26 years old who came to Switzerland because she fell in love (with Jakob). She has a bachelors degree in philosophy and sociology and at the moment she is working at a small research institute with focus on the cultural impulses of the 20th century. She is also working part time at a farm/living space for disabled people.
We are both open an interested in people - and in the world in general. We appreciate to go in depth with places, people and topics: Things mostly turn out to be more interesting then... This is why we prefer to live where people lives when visiting other places, and not at a hotel or hostel. Although we are neither in the need of, nor expecting to be guided or entertained by our hosts, we like the atmosphere of a home, and of people living their lives around us. With that being said, we also need our own space, privacy and a certain amount of quiet - especially at night.
Our interests, to sum some of them up, are first and foremost music. We both sing, mostly classical, but also folk, rock (Jakob used to be a lead singer in a rock band), and Joni Mitchell (Aina's favorite). Walking in nature is important (and the swiss or norwegian mountains are as made for great hikes). Food is also essential, and Aina is an ice-cream lover who always tries to search out the best parlor in town. She is always happy for a tip!
These are the basics about us. We are happy to share more if there is an occasion for it.
