Ten months without a home


Our new, smaller storage

It’s been ten months since we moved out from our house and stepped in to a new way of living. A nomadic lifestyle if you want. We’ve been house sitting for people who has been away, we’ve exchanged work for food and accomodation, and this summer we’ve stayed with family and friends in Sweden, and we have experienced more kindness and hospitality than ever.

And here’s an amazing fact: in ten months, we have payed for 20 nights in hotels or bed and breakfast – that’s less than one out of ten months. The rest of the time we’ve had a bed to sleep in, roof over our heads and a table to sit at for free.

We’ve learned many things along the way. One of them is that there’s a big will to help other people out, to share what we have with someone else, and a huge trust in human kind. It’s been wonderful to see, feel and live among all of this and we look forward to continue sharing what we have with others along the road.

  1. Sounds very good. It’s crazy that you “needed” a hotel or B&B just twenty days. You seem to manage everything quite efficiently 🙂
