"Even though working in London is really busy it gives you a huge work and life experience"

If someone asked me to describe London in one word, I would describe it as BUSY. It has been a long and busy workday as usual today. I must say, I like working for DEKRA Claims Services.

 

This is what my daily routine looks like: I leave the house at 8am and I take the northern underground line from High Barnet to London Bridge. I could take the...

"Soon we'll be back home for Christmas"

Times flies and the date of our flight back to Switzerland draws nearer by the day. While I am excited about going back home, there is still a bit nervousness – I hope everything goes well!

 

A Christmassy feeling is to be found in London; colourful lights shimmering through the night, from time to time some snow shows up and the streets and shops...

So, on Saturday, Saskia and I went to Madame Tussauds for the first time. And I’ve got to say, it was really amazing. If you ever go to London, make sure to go there. They don’t just have incredibly realistic wax figures,...
