Our first trip as a couple had the two of us on a 7 month journey through Spain and Portugal in Thomas’ forty year old VW. We were definetly not travelling fast (the top speed of our van being 110km per hour) which in turn is actually a blessing, more time to take it all in and not miss much of anything :). It was sublime. We experienced a lot of life, witnessed so much beauty, and met many great people along the way. Turns out a trip like this does in fact change you. For example, among so many lessons, it can teach you in actuality you can get by on far less material “stuff” than you think. It’s not that you have to get by on less, it’s that you actually don’t need all that much to feel really satisfied and joyful. Of course I’ll admit that life on the road is a different kind of life than life-at-home with all its comforts, and for that matter, people who prefer the all-inclusive vacation route probably wouldn’t enjoy our idea of trippin’. For us, however, this is exactly what the doctor ordered..
