Trade 46 | Veronika Poymyetyeva

A trade largely focused on meat/cheese plates, focaccia, gelato and coffee with a little sport thrown in. My stomach didn't rumble once for the duration of my stay. A substantial change in surrounding after 6 weeks in Germany. Originally from the Ukraine, Veronika had now settled in Italy. Not sure what the appeal of the place is to be honest.

Currently adjusting to change in her life she was figuring out next steps and working at applying her fitness/nutrition knowledge to a coaching business of some form as @butterfedfitness encouraged by her friend Camille who had introduced us.

This was not the full trade we were planning between the three of us (now pending in April) but instead a whistlestop visit in on route to France, photographing tennis played at a high enough standard I could place myself in the path of the ball confident it would meet a racquet before it met my face.
