Restationers: Fanny and Haz
Fanny and Haz mean a lot to us. Not only because they have been active members of our community at Restation, but also because, as founder of a coliving space in Switzerland, we have learned a lot from each other and they are of great support.
Part time nomads, founders of Swiss Scape and members of Coliving Hub, they have a lot of things and experiences to share.

"Basically building resilience and faith that what I do makes sense, is a major obstacle. I am my biggest challenge" - Fanny
"Setting up our coliving space was a big challenge. Everyone around us told us that we were crazy to do it in Switzerland" - Haz
What's your story - what you do and how you do it?

We manage a coliving space in the Swiss Alps since early 2017. For now, it's only the two of us running everything, although we hire some people to help us during the high season. We do everything from marketing to finance, running operations and managing our community, to the maintenance of our properties. We work on so many different things on a daily basis that our job never gets boring :)

The best advice you can give anyone who's getting started (on nomad life or a project)?

It's much easier to get started when you surround yourself with people who are living the lifestyle you want to live, or who are doing projects that passionate you. Having a community around you is crucial, especially in the early days when there is so much uncertainty. You'd be giving yourself an amazing push by going to nomad destinations, staying at a coliving or a coworking, going to conferences that target nomads, or simply check out meetups in your city.

What's the craziest story that has ever happened to you when you were traveling?

Fanny: In Guatemala, we found a scorpion (poisonous) in our bedroom.

Haz: I dislocated my knee while salsa dancing in Las Palmas. That happened one day before embarking on a cruise for a two weeks journey across the Atlantic Ocean.

What's your inspiration when you don't feel motivated to work?

Depending on how low the motivation is, the things that help us most are: Taking a day off, or going for a walk or watching TED talks on entrepreneurship (especially talks on failures and successes).

What's your next big thing? I.e. BHAG (big hairy audacious goal) - personal or professional

Professionally, the next big thing is finding a way to make the business have a real and deep social/ environmental impact on the world. But also, to make it grow in a way that the impact produced is positive.

When you choose a destination to spend the next few months, what are your major criteria?

First and foremost, the place must have good food. We love eating well :) And the second major criteria is walkability. We want to be able to walk or bike around and not have to rely on taxi, or public transportation to move around.



What's your take on Las Palmas? What do you like about it?
We love the food :) and the beachfront walk. The city is awesome because it's the perfect size: not too big but not too small either. You won't get bored since there are always things going on. The community of nomads is awesome! It's really easy to integrate and find new friends.

Biggest challenge you had to face?
Fanny: In the business, the biggest challenge I have to face every day is fighting the urge to stop everything. Basically building resilience and faith that what I do makes sense, is a major obstacle. I am my biggest challenge.

Haz: Setting up our coliving space was a big challenge. Everyone around us told us that we were crazy to do it in Switzerland. But it worked :)

What are you most passionate about?
Fanny: Travelling and discovering fresh ideas, new ways of living, seeing the world from another perspective, and, of course!, meeting inspiring people from all over the world.

Haz: I love drone photography!
