Hi Kristina! First off where are you from?

I’m  from  the  beautiful  city  Braunschweig  in North Germany,  where  I  was  born  being  the  baby  of  my  family  of  6.

My  now  husband  asked  me  to  move to  London  with  the  promise  to  stay  for  a  maximum  of  a  year  or  two.  15 years and  three  children  later  we  are  still  here  and  can’t  imagine  living  anywhere  else.

 

How do you like to stay fit and healthy?

I love  living  in  Belsize  Park  and  run and down  Hampstead  Heath  or  Regents  Park  to  stay  fit.  I also  love  Barry’s  Bootcamp,  especially  if I continue to bump  into  David  Beckham.  My  big passions  however  are  skiing  and  kitesurfing.

Best thing about living in London?

The one thing I like most about  London  is that  so  many different  nationalities  come  together, share  their  culture, learn  from each  other and  enjoy each others'  company  regardless of their backgrounds.

Fun Fact: Kristina published a children’s book in2004 called Fay and Finlay's Fabulous Friendship Book.
