Ursina und Reto

Ursina (58) and her husband Reto (61) are both still working, but the children have left home. In their leisure time, the couple eagerly like to take city tours and discover new cultures.

"When we are on city tours, my husband and I like to keep things simple. Our working day is strictly planned and leaves no room for spontaneity. And this makes us all the more happy to be inspired by the moment in our leisure time. But a complicated compression solution does not fit into an uncomplicated daily routine, which is why we trust the Essential stockings on trips."
