About Our Family

We´re a family of two, myself (37 years old lawyer) and my son (4 years old). We love to travel, see new places and meet new people. In 2014 we´re planning to spend 2 months in Spain (not necesserily at the same place the whole time). I want to learn some Spanish and we would like to travel, enjoy some culture, food and sun.

In our free time we try to spend time with family and friends, go to the swimming pool, read, go on hikes and visit our country.

Lifestyle

My main interests are hikes, reading, politics and travelling. Learning about new cultures, languages and cuisine.
