Hei there, welcome to A Life Quest!

Do you know this feeling of being calm and bright? Having this inner joy that spills over into a natural smile. Having the sensation of being in the right place at the right moment. Connected to beautiful people, while being in a safe place surrounded by a natural environment that keeps surprising you with its beauty? This is how I feel when I’m authentically¬†happy and feel truly connected to the people around me and to my surrounding.

However, for most of my life, these moments have been like rare crystals, which I tried to carefully guard in my heart and in my memory. But is this the way life is supposed to be? Is it possible to live a life, in which moments like the one described above become a way of living?

On this blog I share with you the journey people, like you and me, embark on while searching for a happy and meaningful life in which, where we are and what we do, feels truly right.

I came up with the idea of sharing inspiring stories of this growth journey while starting my “year off” in Cape Town, South Africa. I took the decision of taking a year “off” last year, as I turned 30. While most of my friends were settling down by getting married and having children, I felt out of place. Even though I was doing something that was totally aligned with¬†my values, as in the last 5 years I build up an amazing social business empowering thousands of people for sustainability, and we had an awesome team, I was feeling stuck. I was thirsty for “more”.

As I did not really know what that “more” was, I decided to take the time to find it out. I carefully planned with my team how to step out of the operational work of our company. Even if I caused several headaches, my team has been amazingly supportive and I’m incredibly thankful to them.

While talking to different people, I realized that my “thirst for more” was related to the thirst for growing on a personal level, but also to the desire of finding a way of living where I could express all parts of my personality, while making a difference to the causes my heart burns for.

I packed my kitesurfing equipment and left the Swiss winter behind to embark on a life-changing journey of discovery. A life quest fuelled by inspiring places, by unique experiences and by surprising encounters with people, which like me, are searching for “more”.
