About ZheSi...

Hello wonderful you,

We're Zhenya and Simon. We have recently moved from Britain to Germany (where Simon is originally from) and we can't wait to explore the North of the country and both coasts.

We love books📚 Immensely! I (Zhenya) used to work in a library. I prefer fiction books that speak in low voices, tell “realistic stories” that we all share to a certain extent with a pinch of salt and melancholy but at the same time with firm hope in the end that if things are still not okay, they certainly will be in the future. And Simon likes non-fiction titles and sometimes biographies. He's one of the cleverest people I've ever met who from his early childhood constantly explores this world and has particular interests in history, politics and space.

🧦 As much as reading we love surrounding ourselves with romantic, cosy things that can add harmony, peace and beauty to our everyday life. We're “hygge souls” who prefer calm muted colours and soft materials and huge fans of Puuung drawings. For us they reflect the things that we tend to realize in our life: beauty of simplicity and love to details. Indie, folk music and Reinhard Mey (a German singer-songwriter) as well as natural sounds of rain and crackling fire always find their ways to our hearts and minds. Originally coming from Belarus, I love winters with lots of snow and “proper” snowdrifts and Simon finds his peace in a forest.

❤️Please tell us about your typical day or what makes it special. What you have eaten today, what you see out of the window or what is occupying your thoughts atm. Share with us what you love and what makes you happy (even if it is just the monotonous sound of your wife’s knitting needles or calming purr of your old cat) or just write us about your favourite place, café, food, book, movie... If you have your fav illustrator or artist we would love to hear about them as well🤗

Here are some ideas of postcards that we'd be very happy to receive:
