  • Description

    As a couple we decided to get some distance of our life in switzerland. So in september 2018, after a long period of preparation, we quitted our jobs and flat and moved into our van. Since then we live in our tiny-mobile-appartement and while we sleep, read, cook, sing, draw, dance, eat, learn and laugh in and around our van, we travel.
    Before we left switzerland, we both made different appranticeships, jobs, studied and finally worked as a speech- and language-therapist (Mirjam) and as a teacher (Lorenz).
    We now love to have lots of time to try and learn in new fields of interests with different teachers and friends. We would love to learn more about gardening and permaculture and see how other people in different cultures live and act.
