In 2018 we made a 6 month journey in our van to learn more about sustainable living, and to find out how we want to live ourselves in the future. We visited places where people live in new, experimental ways.
It was an incredible adventure. We learned a lot. Not only about sustainable and communal living, but also about ourselves. We learned to relate to each other in new ways, because 6m2 is a very small space to be in. It was a challenge for our relationship, but we feel it made our bond stronger and love is still very much flowing between us!
We traversed through France, Spain and Portugal. There are many different initiatives, which is inspiring. On the flip side we also experienced how hard it is to build a community, how hard it is to live simple and sustainable lives. A lot of funny paradoxes come into play when one is aiming at living small.
A list of all the places we visited as Finding A Better Way To Live can be found here.
