For nearly 25 years of my life Seattle was for me nothing more but a place where action of the movie "Sleepless in Seattle" is set. I remember a funny episode when the main character, Meg Ryan, says "I'll never like to live in a city where it rains for 9 months a year". In June 2012 we suddenly came across a great opportunity to move there. To make a final decision, we had to get more familiar with this city. We did a lot Internet research, read many posts on many forums and, not knowing much more, one day we were absolutely sure that we want to spend our next few years there!

My first impression after leaving the airport was the air – wet and cold but seemed very clean. The taxi driver told me that I was having a great weather as the Sun was sometimes visible ;) I thought he’s just exaggerating!
