“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
– Oscar Wilde
We are minimalist 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. Ultimately it is about happiness. This philosophy is the result of a personal journey we like to call a life reboot. Basically—we got one life to live and we want to make sure we live it well.
While we are nomads by choice, at the moment it is also by necessity. Being from opposite ends of the world, we are actually not allowed to live in the same country until one of us immigrates. A long and arduous process! So we choose to travel together instead. At the moment we are out on an epic long walk across the whole world… walking from Norway to New Zealand. We are nomadic explorers—this is what we do!
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!”
