We are having an emotional time: Last week, we sold Max. This is doing something with all of us, especially with Marian as Max’ creator. How many hours, how much love and sweat have flown into building our home and faithful companion! And to how many beautiful people and places has he brought us!
Now, he will continue his journey with another Swiss family of four. They plan to be on the road for 2 to 3 years, sharing our ideas and values: Learning from experiencing, spending every day as a family, enjoying life to its fullest. This is wonderful! It feels good to hand Max over to them, as tough as it is for us right now. On Wednesday, Marian will drive to Graubünden and leave his baby there with them.
We have arrived back in Switzerland on September 1st. For the last month, we have been busy looking for a new place to live in, doing homeschooling with Luca and Lou, selling Max, and working on financing our middle term dream of our own land, tiny house(s) and garden.
In a month from now, we will move to Meiringen – a quaint little city in the heart of the Bernese Oberland, close to the mountains and with its own ski region. For me, Karin, it is yet another emotional step to leave Bern, “my” city. But hey, what do they say about the comfort zone? Bloody leave it! Sure enough, that’s what I am doing… The last year has shown me that I can do anything.
We have decided to continue with this blog and website – hoping to inspire you with our approach to life which is still unconventional for many people. But we feel that so many are joining in, stepping out of their fear and limitations, living exactly as they want to – and not as they feel they have to. Life is on our side!
