Switserland – Granite rocks, lush alpine meadows and a bright sky with a few clouds. The colors around me are gray, green, blue and white. An eagle floats high in the thermal air and closer by cows are grazing in a meadow. Apart from the sounds of their cow bells, it is completely silent. The view is just as the tranquility overwhelming. And I’m ready for that. I no longer want to run from deadline to deadline and let my smartphone and other screens determine my life. Here we ended up in a few hidden gems, in the company of inspiring people who have made the conscious decision to change course and to focus on their lives in nature.
