Anika  Landsteiner - Life is Made of Courage


7 wishes – 7 challenges – 7 stories

There are people who waste their lives thinking, and there are those who simply get down to it. Globetrotter Anika Landsteiner is definitely one of the latter. For a long time she has been carrying a list of special wishes around with her that she would very much like to have come true one day. Yet she keeps on hesitating, for wishes are often tied to challenges. How do you go about facing your family history? What happens when your voluntary work sees you having a penfriend sentenced to death? And what about spontaneously setting out on a journey alone with your father – where's that going to take you? What is it like to meditate and keeping a vow of silence in an ashram?

When on the spur of the moment an old woman called Emma tells Anika the story of her life, Anika is so impressed that the moment to actually do something has come. Seven wishes become seven inspiring stories. In this book, Anika shows you how to make your very own personal bucket list and how to cope with the adventures life has in store for you. It is for everyone wanting to feel life without knowing how to set about it.

• You can only regret what you haven't done

• Writer Anika Landsteiner faces seven adventures in order to sort herself out
