In Summer 2013, I started into a new chapter of life – leaving everything behind and opening up to something new – without knowing what it would be. It revealed to be such a rich experience that allowed me to explore the world at its fullest – inside out. After those 4 years of what I call a modern-nomadic-lifestyle, it was time to settle. In Bern, a beautiful town in Switzerland. Can’t believe, soon, it will be 4 years of a settled life. Yet, many things moved and moved me while living in the same place. And, exploring worlds and life remains part of my journey, wherever I am. So here I am, ready to share again a little bit of my world of
- what inspires me,
- what touches me, and
- what makes me feel and come alive.
I invite you to join me on the journey of life and look forward to your thoughts and ideas.
There is a long-distance hike through the Swiss Alps called “Via Alpina”. That’s how I thought a new chapter in life would start in summer 2013 – 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 each step of the journey!
