  • From 10.87 - 11.88 travelling through Asia, Australia and New Zealand
  • From 10.87 - 03.89 travelling through Asia, Australia, New Zealand, North- and Central- America

We met on 04.08.1990 through an ad in "Globetrotter Magazine" and became
a couple
since then we share a wonderful life, that has led us through the following stations together:

About our gipsylife...

  • From 04/1991 - 11/1993 our first big trip together; in 2½ years by train from Cham/Switzerland via Austria, Eastern-Europe, Russia, Mongolia and China to Hong-Kong. From there, through Southeast-Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the South-Pacific. Then via Asia back to Switzerland.
  • From 11/1993 - 05/1994 we were Flatmates of Renate + Thomas and had first temporary jobs.
  • From 06/1994 - 05/1999 we lived together with different, interesting flatmates in Lindencham, and worked and saved for our goal ...
  • We "dropped out" on May 12th, 1999, because "normal" life seems to be too monotonous to us, and we valued our freedom more than security. Since then, we're travelling slowly and joyfully around the globe. The experience of new landscapes, cultures and culinary delights is much more rewarding to us than the success obtained by the restless fighting of today's common prestige- and career-thinking. Furthermore, we take time to practise naturism regularly, as we feel best nude with nature. Instead of being addicted to working, we’re now incurable addicted to travelling, and this with delight, no matter if this virus ends harmless, or even lethal. So far, it has brought us to the following enriching destinations:

    • 05/1999 - 12/2001   Voyage of experience and naturism across Europe with our Renault Twingo. Between Gibraltar and the North Cape we visited: Portugal, Spain, France, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. We enjoyed quite often a naturist's life, especially in France, Spain and Croatia, and even in Scandinavia.
    • 12/2001 - 12/2003   Voyage of naturism: two years of "vivre nu et manger bien" in France and Spain.
    • 12/2003 - 05/2004   Voyage of experience through Asia, we discover Vietnam, Laos and Thailand.

    • 10/2004 - 03/2005   Voyage of experience and naturism through Australia's eastern half.

About our philosophy of life...
To us, freedom is real quality of life and we find it more important than a long life.

We would like to understand and not criticize what seems to be unusual to us.

To us, nudity is the most natural thing on earth. It promotes our well-being, self-esteem and creativity, whether we live it for ourselves, or within a community.

We attain wisdom by mental growth and not by institutionalized religions, we believe in ourselves.

To have a sportive life in high spirits, we need neither alcohol nor nicotine; these are anyway just legalized drugs.

By admitting to our taboo-breaking philosophy of life, instead of living it out secretly, we gain even more self-satisfaction & happiness and moreover, we provide food for thought!

If we don’t trouble anybody, we like to take the freedom to break taboos to escape social-cultural restraints. Thus, we gain even more freedom and even more propinquity to the natural cycle.

We live today so intensively that we can do without a tomorrow!

We don’t fear death; we are even curious of the secret, it will reveal to us. Maybe it will even be our biggest blessing, and our most exciting voyage at the same time.

Last, but not least: Consciously, we confess to being naturists, also by publishing genuine naturist pictures of ourselves on this homepage. We feel completely contended, also without a stich on!
By contrast, the online communities’ sections "for friends only" are certainly ALIEN to our nature, as those hardly contain genuine naturist pictures, but rather attract a clientele keen to exchange kinky contents. Therefore, we use ONLY the photo-communities’ public sections. Whoever puts us as friend, or follows us, on a social network, will be BLOCKED!

About our travel money...
Even to us, it’s mind-boggling that now, mid-2018, more than 19 years have passed already, since we’ve dropped-out. Since then, we travel as na-tourists slowly and joyfully to our favourite destinations around the globe. With such an exciting life, time naturally passes in a flash.

Often, we get asked how we finance our admittingly privileged life. In a nutshell: we’ve exchanged security against freedom!
Sure enough, it needs also some seed capital. More by curiosity, we’ve started to invest a bit at the bourse when we worked again after our first trip together. At the end of the 90’s, the general outlook at the stock-exchange was that good, you could make good money, even with “bad investments”. Thanks to our saving determinedly, stock market gains, and sharing our apartment with flatmates, we’ve accumulated € 300’000 in fife years only. To exchange even more security into freedom, we’ve capitalized the second pillar of our pension funds, which yielded another € 80’000.

Now we were ready, chucked our jobs and exchanged the security of a regular life, against a life in unlimited freedom. Then we assumed our savings would last for about 12 years, maybe 14, if we’re lucky, or perhaps only 7, if things go wrong. We didn’t worry, as we knew, whatever we’d get, it will be plenty.

Instead of having spent all money for exaggerated security, we just enjoyed life and it still feels brilliant to have the benefit of our freedom, devil may care. As we live out every day to the fullest, we don’t miss out on anything we’d need to catch up on tomorrow. Thereby, it gets irrelevant whether there will be still another tomorrow!

At around 50, we’ve cancelled our health insurance. Meanwhile, we gape that some couples in Switzerland and Germany pay every year for their health insurance alone, as much as we spend for 12 months of travelling in comfort. Small “repairs” can be done cheaply all over the world, larger ones, we refuse. As we live an intense, great life, we consider it more natural to accept cancer or other diseases that lead into an impasse, such as they are: deadly.

In 2012, it didn’t look as if our funds would last for only 7, 12 or 14 years, but even for 16 years, more than we had ever hoped for. Maybe it’s law of nature: if you don’t worry, destiny rewards you with a particularly great deal and it got even better! About a year before all our resources would have been used up, we could, totally unlooked for, inherit. That way, our nest egg accumulated again up to about the same size as it was when we had dropped out in 1999.

It seems, we have hit the jackpot. We feel affirmed: it’s not worth worrying. Come what may, there is always an appropriate solution, it’s only a question of our mindset. Therefore, we enjoy our life even more intensely and spoil ourselves with even more extravaganza, like for example the South-Pacific trip in 2017.
Someday, our nest egg will collapse. Perhaps, destiny incites again somebody (you?) to feed our travel account, but perhaps by then it will just be time to go on our last journey…

This Homepage ...
Shall inform our friends and family, as well as our admirers and enviers, about our dropping out, our life in freedom and our reasons for doing so.
Shall inspire you to travel on your own and to enjoy naturism.
We keep our website ad-free and neither incorporate promo-essays nor -links. This is certainly the best advertisement for our philosophy of life.
Therefore, as long as we exist, we gladly pay a small ad-free contribution. This shall motivate you to rather explore the world with a na-tourist trip on your own bat, than getting seduced by advertisements to book an “all-inclusive vacation” to Magaluf beach.
