When you spend so much time watching the world go by surrounded by million £ houses, hearing the water splashing, kids giggling and the sound of a tennis ball hitting the racket you do start asking yourself those dreaded questions. Will I ever be happily married, will I get my wooded Eco house with 5 acres of land, will I ever want to settle and have a family but does any of that really matter when the here and now experience are probably more important.
I think my self deep and meaningful is because everyone thinks my grandad is giving up. When my grandmother died everyone thought he would die of a broken heart but be surprised us all and is now a stubborn old git at a ripe old age of 96. In Germany instead of flowers they put padlocks up to show they are thinking of someone special so I'll do that as I can't be with him at the moment.
Some people think we are crazy for wanted to stay in a van for so long but for new experiences alone it's the most wonderfully free sensation. I can see how the traveller community started.
