Interview with Kristin Reinhard of z-Nüni.com
Today’s guest is Kristin Reinhard, an Australian who spent her gap year in Switzerland and is still there today, some 20 years later!
In this episode, Kristin tells us how her journey to Switzerland began and why she stayed, she gives us an insight into life in Switzerland with a family and shares her favourite family-friendly places to visit.
As an outlet for her writing and photography, Kristin created the website Swiss Family Travel where she, and a group of English speaking writers, offered an insider’s guide to Switzerland. They have recently rebranded the website and we’ll learn more about the new version – z-Nuni – in this episode.
As someone who frequently daydreams about living in Switzerland, I loved hearing all Kristin’s nuggets about life in Switzerland and I’m sure you will, too.
