Living in South Africa

Dominique Rinderknecht


Even though a passport tells us where we come from, it doesn’t mean we can’t feel at home elsewhere in the world.

The comfort of many families in Switzerland and Europe sometimes comes short when you have travelled and experienced new cultures. So it’s not surprising that many people feel South Africa is their second home, a place they return to again and again. But South Africa makes it easy for us: it is a country with a culture full of contrasts that we can identify with. Some people are lucky enough to live between these two worlds, like the model and Miss Switzerland 2013, Dominique Rinderknecht.

In this video, she talks about her experiences in South Africa, her decision to move there, and her new life in the new world.
