In Summer 2013, I started into a new chapter of life – leaving everything behind and opening up to something new – without knowing exactly what it would be. It reveals to be such a rich experience, it allowed me to explore the world at its fullest during 4 years – inside out. After of what I called the “modern-nomadic-lifestyle” years, it was time for me to settle. In Bern, a beautiful town in Switzerland. And can’t almost believe, soon, it will be 4 years living in the same place. Yet, many things continued to move me and flow while living a “normal life”.
And, exploring worlds and life remains part of my journey, wherever I am. So here I am again in this virtual space, ready to share 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 and every step of the journey of life!
