Step by step, closer to oneself: In a world driven by speed and pressure to perform, more and more people are proving unable to cope with their living circumstances. The result is depression and burn-out. "How do I get out of this?" Petra Albenberger found the courage simply to pack her bags, take time out and hike from her home in Wals over the Alps and the Grossglockner, through Austria, Slovenia and Italy, right down to the Mediterranean. Countless experiences with people and animals helped her to find the way back to her inner self. A heartening book that can provide an incentive to take the first step, to take courage and make a move – and to be richly rewarded.
