And what if traveling wasn’t running away ?

Version française No more clichés about long term traveling ! I can only talk about my own experiences on this blog because traveling really is a special and different adventure for everyone. 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”.

10. ATW : Going on a bike trip in 8 spicy short stories

Version française Almost a month on the road… I tell you everything !!! But before my little spicy anecdotes, let’s just be clear, going on a bike trip can seem uneasy (ans it is) but it’s also real freedom and freedom deserves some efforts. Touring Europe on a bike is the cheapest way to do so while caring for our planet earth and taking some time to live. It’s lonelier than a walking tour or a tour using...

7. ATW : I am a piece of toilet paper… what about you?

Version française A very simple metaphor for a change… I have a story that has nothing to do with cooking but I’d like to share it very badly. It took me time to be ready to write it as I didn’t know how important it was for me but when I wrote my article (only in french sorry) about how I feel after 8 month of travel and that I used the words “I’m almost ready”, I suddenly realised how this...

Living in a community… always the same story !!!

Version française My major learning during my month at Gaia ashram When I try to think about it, it seems that my main discovery has nothing to do with gardening, permaculture or natural building. I learned about the society and the persons making it. 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...

I’ve acquired some very technical knowledge but also some very personnal knowledge more social/human. I expected to learn a lot about permaculture and meditation as I thought an ashram was a school with buddhist rituals but I ended up learning much more about myself,...
