George grew in Sochi. When Sophie was a baby, the family moved to Siberia. Their father was in the military, so they moved a lot. In fact, both Sophie and George enjoyed moving around different places. When they were kids, they moved to Pskov and then Samara and Ufa as well. They loved making new friends and living in different places. That is why they both love travelling and .
Still, Sophie and George have a soft spot for Sochi. They love it. It's such a unique place! Sochi has beaches but also mountains. In the autumn, it rains a lot and the city stays green. The fall from the trees and the colours of the sky are beautiful. In the winter, the weather isn't that cold but you can go to the mountains to ski. The views there are amazing. In the spring, Sochi looks like a painting. So many flowers, it almost never rains and birds are singing all day long. And then it's summer! This tropical has so much to offer. The sea is blue and there are pebble beaches. People go snorkelling, parasailing and surfing. No people say about Sochi, "If there's a heaven on Earth, it is here."
Sophie and George have a large family in Sochi. Their and their aunts and uncles still live in Sochi. Sophie and George have ten there! Sophie's favourite cousin is Olga and George's favourite cousin is Danny. They visit them every summer and they spend a lot of time with them. For George and Sophie, Sochi is home. And there's no place like home!
Sophie's dad is going to soon and the family is thinking about buying a house in Sochi and maybe even moving back there at some point. Everyone is very excited as you can imagine. A house in Sochi means they can see their family more often, spending time playing at the beach or picking apples, pears, and plums in Gran's garden.
Yesterday afternoon, George and Sophie's parents spotted a real bargain. , they can't go to Sochi as they didn't get a leave from work. It would be a shame to miss this opportunity! That's why they called Sophie when she was at the gym. They asked her and George to go there in order to help their grandmother and grandfather with the deal. This way George and Sophie can check the place out and help the grandparents with all the documents.
