Traveler portrait – Pierre

Hi, my Name is Pierre, I am 31 years old. When I am not traveling, I live in Zurich, Switzerland. I am a paraglider pilot and a SCUBA instructor.

Whether when it is flying or exploring underwater worlds, I enjoy evolving in 3D dimensions, being able to go up, down, left or right. Together with Daniela I am working on a documentary film to promote people who are taking action to care for our planet, more specifically the oceans. We want to inspire people around the globe to go on with their ideas, to encourage them to take action and we do not want anyone to think that the fight is not global or that it is already lost.

What inspires you to travel and explore the world?

I travel the world because one environment is not enough and staying too long in the same place makes me feel that like I am missing out.

 

What do you always take with you on your travels to limit your impact on the environment?

I always travel with a reusable shopping bag, mainly to reduce my plastic use.

 

PIerreWhich environmentally friendly projects have you encountered that have particularly inspired you? 

The most impressive and engaged project of all times is the work that Sea Shepherd is doing. The fight they put up, whether on the field (in the oceans), lobbying, or in courts by making sure the laws are being applied, is simply brilliant. We should go on supporting them!

 

Which place on the planet that you visited has struck you the most and why? 

The best places are the ones away from civilization, high in the clouds of Switzerland, deep in the seas of the coral triangle, isolated in the middle of the Australian bush, where nature completely dominates. Civilization is our habitat, but we should have an extended knowledge about nature in order to live sustainably.

 

Dream destinations:

My dream is to go on an adventure to the extremely remote « South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands » just north of Antarctica!
