A Fiest to the Eyes

applePlucking an apple from the next tree, sitting down on the side of the road and having a refreshing snack in the middle of an amazing landscape – life cannot get any better. And trees laden with fruits of all colors is the lasting impression I got from the walk from Riggisberg to Heitenried. Perfect setting for finding excuses to make a stop every few minutes! In fact, no excuses needed – who can resist such temptation? Continue reading

Walking out of Thun on the Way of St. James means waving goodbye to those beautiful landscapes of turquoise lakes surrounded by green mountains and lovely vineyards, which make the region between Lucerne and Thun so special. And with that to one of the most beautiful sceneries on the Way of St. James in Switzerland. But who needs lakes anyway… Continue reading

Day of the Girl 2013: The wings above Malala

Lets talk Social Entrepreneurship

Imagine an enterprise creating value, which isn’t distributed to shareholders but instead reinvested for social purposes. Or an enterprise, which aims at actively working on a specific social problem. Sounds strange to you?

This post comes slightly late for world-water-day – but it’s never too late to educate oneself. Re-think your drink! And refer to tap water instead of bottled water if you want to be one of thousands working against a whole industry, which threatens the access of millions to one of the most prescious resources of our planet: drinking water.

Pssst…things they are a-changin’

The past weeks showed that one of the golden rules in life is that while making plans is a good thing, life itself often calls for an alteration of plans. Everything else would be what the Quebecois would call “plate” – boring, as it would mean we’d barely get out of the safe bay. Or would we…? Continue reading

You kan now klick on ze muzik playerz and listen to my muzik. Miya arrived in 2013…! ;)
Hope you like it.
