Our time of our lives

Time is a funny thing. Often when you’re most busy, you get a lot of things done. Apparently when there is little time, you manage to squeeze everything into your tight schedule. But when we have all the time in the world, it goes by so damn quickly.

It might be the most valuable thing in life. Yet often we spend it on running from one thing to another, without any time to stand still and reflect; to explore, think, read, observe and broaden our horizons.

“Time is the coin of our life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.”

Carl Sandburg

On the road we moved into a routine where we take our time to wake up and sleep late if we feel like it. We have a slow breakfast, go on a walk, drive a bit, have a coffee break, look for a spot to spend the night, make ourselves a nice dinner, go over our day together and fall asleep.

We might not get a lot of things done, but we make many memories. Much more than in our day to day working routine. Those 200 days on the road so far have been way more intense and memorable than any random 200 days at home. Same amount of time, but different kind of perspective. Being on the move, crossing borders, meeting new people, change of scenery, it all adds up to this amazing intense experience.

At this stage in our travels we are happy to be in this unique position we are in right now. We chose to reset and take control of our time of our lives. And yes, time flies when you’re having fun and we just love to waste it together.
