We are a family of four. Dad is a completionist technophile software engineer, good conditions for exhaustive cache hunts both near and far. The kids enjoy a good treasure hunt and tricking them into a sunday afternoon walk with the incentive of finding a cache is a great parental tool. They prefer boxes that are large enough to trade items. Mum usually comes in when both dad and kids just can't find a cache, she has the magic touch. We are typically caching on foot, by bike or public transport.
Since November 2016, Dad has joined the volunteer reviewer team for Switzerland and Liechtenstein where he reviews caches under the name of srebeelis.
Schüpfen is a village in the "Seeland" district of the canton of Berne in Switzerland. It has a population of a little under 4'000 and is 15 minutes by train from Berne. Since the beginning of 2016, Schüpfen has become our new home.
Berne is the capital of Switzerland and has a population of roughly 130'000 making it Switzerland's fourth largest city. Bern's historic old town is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Berne was our home until the end of 2015 and still is the place where dad works and where many of our friends live.
