December 2017 – A complete life change. Who hasn’t thought about it, at least once? We often think about it. Once we are over 50 we have begun to ask ourselves more and more frequently why we should always run frantically, work 10 or 12 hours a day for 6, sometimes 7, days a week. Our work experience has been rich and varied. We both started as journalists (specialized in technology) and worked for important editorial groups, including international ones. We therefore have the presumption of knowing how to write, of knowing how to tell stories.
We are Paolo and Marilù, both of whom have practically always lived in the Milan outskirts. We both like to travel and we both like the outdoors, which brings us to the second important element: the passion for the open air and for discovering new places. From here, and for some time, we began to reflect on how to combine experience and passion to give a radical change to our life, which would allow us to really do something we like, but at a pace chosen by us.
Thus, was born the project that we present to you, which has two different but equally important faces.
The first one is very personal. We have decided to become “fulltimer”, that is people who have chosen to live their life in a van or motorhome. No more home, no more classic residence: a few highly customized square meters to live in and four wheels and an engine to move us constantly, free to choose a new destination every day or, as the fulltimers say, “to see every day a different sunrise and a different sunset“. As you can imagine, such a choice involves a long series of practical challenges to be faced and solved. As did other people who have chosen this life, therefore, we too will share our experience.
The second side, which should make the first sustainable, is a professional project, very ambitious and complex to carry out. This is a vertical digital publishing initiative that is maturing as an idea and as a business plan. But it’s not ready to be revealed yet. If you follow us, you will be the first to know it. In the meantime, let’s start from here, with a blog that wants to try to tell you all how we are approaching this radical change in our lives. Our reflections, our choices could be an inspiration for those who are thinking or even just dreaming of making a similar choice. On the contrary from the other, even beautiful, blogs of those who have already started, with goals and ambitions similar or completely different from ours, we have decided to “move” in advance, from our home, the one with four walls, to try to explain how you can take this complicated path. Which maybe can stop at any time. But if you are reading these notes it means that we made it and that we have left. Find out with us how.
