When you travel, you may feel far from your comfort zone. True to our Swiss heritage, we invite you to slow down just for a while and rediscover your awareness of those aspects of life that we all appreciate but tend to forget – be in the moment, with a little help from us. We have crafted & illustrated six beautiful postcards that will inspire your mind and spark joy. They are accompanied by podcasts reflecting on six different themes: Authenticity, Vitality, Calm, Hospitality, Tradition, Clarity.

Download your favourite theme and take a minute out of your busy schedule to colour in your own postcard – an exercise proven to slow you down - while listening to the matching podcast. We will then carefully send it off to a person of your choosing.

This is our idea of vitality, of how we can live a more sustainable and mindful life. A small idea can go a long way. And so can sparks of joy!
