And what if traveling wasn’t running away ?

But if there is one common experience that most of the long term travelers go through it’s that as soon as you start talking about your project, you receive comments and questions that can make you think twice about the decision you took....

9. ATW : Together on the road…

Version française The different things you might want to pay attention to while traveling with you lover…   Communication Lots of time doesn’t mean “easy to take the time to communicate together”.

And I’m still very surprised to realize that we’ve been able to recreate a small society with only 23 persons and in only 4 weeks where no one was very happy, satisfied or...
