>  Meet other travellers!   >  Meet other travelers: Alexis and Camille, on the roads with a one-year-old!
When we anounced we were leaving, many times, people would tell us “this is my dream but I can’t…”; “Great for you but I can’t because I have 3 children/a dog/a house…”; “I would love to do this but I can’t afford this”
In this series “Meet other travellers” we have interviewed other travellers that we have met during our trip. The purpose of this is to show you that if you set your mind to something and fix clear objectives, it IS possible!
All these families have different compositions, ages, ways of travelling, etc BUT they all have one thing in common: they did everything to turn their dream a reality!

Can you tell me about yourselves?

We are a nomad family: Irina (1 year old), my wife Camille, our two dogs Amon and Ziggy and myself, Alexis.

What type of travellers would you describe yourselves as?

If we had to describe ourselves as travellers, we would call ourselves nomads.

How are you travelling? How long? Where?

We are travelling in our campervan (Lothar), a 1991 Peugeot J5 Autostar. We have been travelling round Europe for nearly two years.

What made you take this decision?

This decision became obvious when we became fed up of sedentary life and its routine.

What is your best memory?

Romania with its wild moutain scenery and its people with huge hearts.

What is your worst memory?

When our daughter Irina was hospitalised in Turkey.

What equipment do you consider essential?

Our good mood and a bit of craziness!

What do you miss?

The products from our region (cheese and cold meats).

What was your biggest difficulty?

When our alternator broke down.

How do you manage financially?

I am a seasonal worker and my wife is a tatooer.

Any regrets? Best decision of your lives?

No regrets except not leaving earlier. And yes, it is the best decision of our lives.

What is happiness for you?

Happiness is to travel, to enjoy time with your family and live simple moments, meet people and enjoy nice moments with them round a fire camp.

What would you say to somebody who is scared to take the leap?

If you don’t try, you won’t know and you will regret it sooner or later.
