About me

I once had an interesting job in a reputable corporation, I lived in a nice rented flat in a trendy city, friends and family around, spending weekends in the mountains and trying to keep my mind open by consciously applying little changes to every day life and safeguarding a certain curiosity. These little drops finally prepared me to take a big decision:

In Spring 2013, time had come – I quit my job and flat to start a new adventure in my life:

  • Live my dreams
  • Explore and discover the world, life styles and life models
  • Challenge myself and learn through experience, day-by-day
  • Do what I love to do a little bit more often
  • Share the experience with family, friends and the world through this blog

This journey has taken me to many destinations. Two years later, I was in Southern Laos collaborating on a project related to tourism development and created a Travel guide for Southern Laos. It was the real life experience of a master program in development and international cooperation that I just finalized a few weeks ago. Something, that seemed unreachable many years back – has come true.

What’s next? After all those years exploring a “modern nomad” life and gaining experience in the field of development cooperation, it’s time to settle. It’s time for a new place called home. And, time for a new professional challenge in the field of international development cooperation with a base in Switzerland combined with opportunities to collaborate around the globe.

About viafranziska

There is a long-distance hike through the Swiss Alps called “Via Alpina”. That’s how I thought it should all start, with a one month foot journey. However, weather conditions called for a change of plans concerning the route. So instead of starting somewhere in the North East of Switzerland, I started in the sunny Southern part, free from any predefined route. Where every day’s march was created under my feet, step by step, day by day – every morning I decided over the next hiking destination (sometimes with the help of recommendations from the kiosk lady, the baker, the hut guardians or any other local people I met along the way). viafranziska was born…and with it the name of this blog. Enjoy the journey!
