Hello, my name is Salwa Petersen

“Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.” Jack Kerouac

I am a modern-day nomad, from Chad in Central Africa. I hail from the beautiful oasis of central Sahara. After decades living in large cities around the world and exploring the seven corners of the planet, I started to feel increasingly restless, overwhelmed by consumerism and excesses. I yearned for a simpler, richer, more authentic way of life. I naturally looked into my past, I reconnected with my roots and embraced the minimalist approach to life that has been my kin’s for millennia. Inspired, I am now applying those principles to my current, modern life in Paris, France.

Through this blog, I am pursuing my journey and sharing with modern women and men everywhere bits of wisdom from some of the world’s last nomads while celebrating the beautiful art of simple living. Most of my writings are about easy, nutritious Plant-based Food and Drinks Recipes, Beauty, Health & Fitness, Capsule Wardrobe, Travels and everything related to leading a simple, beautiful and happy lifestyle. With each post, I also share pictures from my kitchen, my travels from around the world and my neighborhood, like this one.

Welcome to my blog, make yourself home, have some tea and take part in the conversation!
