"Fuel is the rent we pay," he explained. On the shelf inside the bus the book  "Zero Desche " (Zero waste  "This adage of the philosopher Seneca " Faster to live well and consider that every day itself is a full life. "

They are today near the San-jealous lake in the heart of the French Alps with views of the door. They are walking or on a bicycle. In order to be able to adopt this pattern, they work during the summer as waiters for 70 hours a week.

Kevin says, "We spend less money to do less."

They work as a publisher/editor as a graphic designer and decorator for the blog  "Oktoberfest".

They are a "digital traveller " which is currently experiencing a significant growth.

"I wanted to give up on the daily routine while sitting on a chair from 9:00 to 5:00 and live at my own pace," says Florian, 27, a graphic designer on his way to Greece.

"For young people, the idea is to have a very worn-out career and they are rejecting this idea," said Michel Vez, a youth specialist meeting scientist. Their relationship has changed with the work that should not occupy the whole life.  "

Clara confirms his life partner Florian (the creative FA) by saying, "We do not renounce the gathering or the urban life, but we want to experience something else."

But none of them closed the door completely to return to his former life.

This life may attract on paper, but consider rainy days, cold-water showers, tight space and hours to find a position where the bus, breakdowns and winter nights are...

But Volrian concludes, "But our garden is endless."
