    Hello, we are Araki & Nicolas, a French-Belgian couple currently based in Antwerp (Belgium).
    We share a common desire to build a more earth-friendly lifestyle and future.

    At the beginning of 2020 we decided to get a van, convert it to a little home and hit the road with the intention of meeting people and discovering sustainable communities in Europe.
    We are currently in the building phase of the van.


    Our main goal is to gain knowledge about environmental sustainability.
    For the past few years, we have embraced conscious values and habits in our daily lives (vegetarianism, minimalism, intentional consumer habits...) to the best of our abilities and knowledge.
    Now, we would like to dive deeper and pursue our ambition to build a life that is more in harmony with our natural environment. A lifestyle that leaves a smaller footprint and that can guarantee a sustainable, healthy future for generations to come. We hope to achieve this through hands on work-experiences and meeting people who play an active role (working and/or living) in sustainable communities.


    Initially, we will travel in our van, Bobo, offering help and sharing our skills with people and projects which are consistent with our own core values and beliefs. The help offered can range from growing & cooking food, arts & crafts, construction, events, human and animal care, education,…


    Europe, starting in Belgium, with some first stops in France and Spain and ideally a couple of months in Portugal. But of course, we are ready to adapt our plans to the circumstances linked to Covid19.


    Initially, we hoped to hit the road direction South Europe around September 2020.
    The confinement gave us loads of time to continue the van conversion, which should make us ready sooner than first planned.
