After you've done a thing the same way for two years, look it over carefully. After five years, look at it with suspicion. And after ten years, throw it away and start all over. ~ Alfred Edward Perlman, New York Times, 3 July 1958

Life is all about change. Some happens when you plan it and some happens when you are not even paying attention!

2010 was an enormous year of change for me personally, as well as business wise. I have embraced the change as it gives me a chance to reinvent myself, and it opens me up to a fabulous new future!!

I hope that your holiday season was a great one and wish you a wonderful 2011.

Once again there have been some changes to the ezine and we hope that you enjoy the new look - less cluttered and more focused which is my resolution for 2011.

The Inca Trail

This trip is definitely on my bucket list -I have climbed Kili, trekked in the Himalayas and now look forward to a trekking on the Inca trail, which is one of the world’s top treks.

The Inca Trail is the ancient route used to connect all four corners of the Inca Empire which consisted of more than 30,000 kilometres of foot highways.

The trail starts in Cuzco, the old imperial Inca capital that was both the administrative and religious centre of the empire.

The trek will take you from the Urubamba Valley near Cuzco to the Lost Citadel of Machu Picchu, and will allow you breathtaking views of the Andes.

It crosses hanging bridges as well as climbs to 4100m. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is rated among the ten best trekking tails in the world, due to its striking beauty, ancient Inca ruins and diverse ecological zones.

We are specialists in Incentive Travel and have been taking corporate groups away for the past ten years.

We specialise in well priced, unusual tailor made trips for all countries around the world.

Vertical Events

Jochen Schweizer Events has now been brought to South Africa by The Balance of Work 2 Play. Vertical Events stand for spectacular vertical performances and outstanding show acts. We deliver artistic work and develop individual show concepts for agencies and companies.

Vertical Ballet

For breathtaking moments... The vertical dancers seem to be weightless when they soar in the air -they turn the house wall or fašade into a vertical stage. The audience can experience a breathtaking aerial acrobatics choreography adapted to the venue and the occasion, impressing with its outstanding dynamics and synchronicity.

The vertical dance repertory of the flying acrobats of Jochen Schweizer ranges from perfectly executed and powerful jumps and fascinating partner acrobatics to graceful elements from the world of classic ballet - aerial acrobatics at its best!
Your company and your brand are in the spotlight of the show, the audience will link your message to the fascinating experience and remember it for a long time.

We will conceptualise the creatives for your product launch, event, opening of building. Email us at for a quote.

Make your own wine...

We have four weeks to go and the grapes arrive -
The first part is very exciting when the great refrigeration trucks pull in ...
Then the fun begins with de-stemming the grapes, getting them into fermenters and watching the miracle of grapes turning into wine happen.
