This is real now!
Updated: Nov 3, 2021
We had a dream. We wanted to stop working, enjoy life, take our time and explore cool places. Now the dream is becoming a reality, but we still have a lot to do before we hit the road.
We always loved to travel, and we were done with the routine of full time work, maintaining a house and all the other financial and material obligations that come with being a grown up.
My (Alexia) work in film is quite flexible when it comes to choosing when to work, so when the opportunity presented itself to sell Laurent's business, we jump on it as we thought of as our ticket to freedom.
“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It is lethal.”– Paulo Coelho
So in September of 2021, we've put the house up for sale, We closed on the sale of the business in October 2021, and we are now preparing to hit the road around mid-December.
We will travel overland, on board our 2018 Mercedes Sprinter 4x4 named "Coconut". The great thing with overland travel is that not only you have your home on wheels with you at all time, but that you can also bring your fury friend: our 11 year old Labrador named Makena.
Preparing for departure
We have a lot to do over the next few weeks:
Putting the finishing touches on the van and make sure we have everything we need to hit the road.
Prepare to move out of the house, selling furniture, putting stuff in storage ...etc.
Getting organized with paperwork, finances...etc
and a lot more things I have not thought of yet!
I will be writing about our travels here, in English and French (that one is hard), so follow us on Instagram, Facebook or via this website to see where our adventures takes us.
