I Hope You Dance

Hello there, glad you visited my blog.

My name is Fungai Mettler, I am a Zimbabwean based in Zurich, Switzerland since 2014 and enjoying it so. I got inspiration for my blog name from a song. I first heard the song close to 8 years ago and it just resonated with me. It has become the motto I live by. It speaks of living, loving and taking chances because after all, you don’t want to look back at your life and wonder where all those years have gone! That is why, when you get the chance to sit it out or dance, I Hope You Dance!!
