“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
– Oscar Wilde
We are minimalistic nomadic explorers.
Not being location bound and living a life with fewer possessions is about freedom. Freedom to roam. Freedom from the pressure of social norms. Freedom from being owned by material things. This pursuit of freedom is ultimately about happiness and it is the result of a personal journey we like to call a life reboot. A re-evaluation of priorities and choices in life. Bottom line—we got one life to live and we want to make sure we live it well.
One reason for our nomadic lifestyle has also been immigration restrictions. To get around these rules we have been traveling for the past few years. But with the coronavirus putting an end to global travel we have chosen New Zealand as our base and Karma has started the long immigration process.
We are still nomads at heart and don’t feel ready to put down roots anywhere just yet. So in order to satisfy our passion for freedom and adventure, we have decided to convert an old bus into an off-grid tiny home on wheels. This will give us a home where we can live on our own terms–independent and free.
Hunter S. Thompson said it best:
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, wow!”
