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 ...
Aged 37 and 39, we "dropped out" on May 12th, 1999, because "normal" life seems to be too monotonous to us, and we value 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:
