Welcome to Chicago

Chicago has taken us by storm. The USA and also Chicago were never on our wish list of destinations but after three years of living there it is now impossible to imagine our life without them. We left Chicago at the beginning of the pandemic and so I can only report from a distance. It is the city where not only our wonderful daughter but also SharetheLove was born. Therefore Chicago and the people there are an important part of everything that is and for everything that is coming.

If you live in Chicago or plan to move to Chicago, please let me know and I will be happy to help you!
