About Me


"the world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page."


My name's Andrea and I'm a very sporty, open minded person who loves traveling and meeting new people. I normally get up early in the morning and I start the day with a cup of tea and a good breakfast.

sport is my passion - it makes me feeling good and balanced. I also love to cook for friends and I'm famous for my homemade bread. I'm very interested in dishes from all over the world!

Since I'm teaching grade 7-9 in the city of Zurich, I get in touch with so many different cultures and ways of thinking. Simply amazing!


always look at the bright side of life!
