For a while now have I been following with joy the tiny house movement and at the same time witnessed my friends Susi and Claudio living the dream in a camper. A tiny house at this stage of my life is not an option…but an RV certainly is! So in May I went to the homeland to buy me some camper and as I write these extremely wise words I am on the train with Susi from Milano to Zürich to pick up my new off grid home: no landlord, no contracts, no bills…no one to rip me off – I am the master of my own disaster.
Mostly I am excited about the reduction of physical space that I’ll occupy and about living as simply as possible. There is nothing more freeing than a life without many belongings – physically but even more so mentally – something I had already experienced on Koh Tao.
Tomorrow will be the official takeover and Saturday will start the longish journey back home. Over the next few weeks, with the help of Claudio aka MacGyver, I will be pimping the RV to make it more homely and getting it ready for the kitties and I. Stay tuned!
