Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get off the “more” treadmill and live with less? Mat and I thought about it all the time before we sold our house 3 years ago in an attempt to try something different. The nomadic lifestyle we chose as a replacement for our settled life is obviously not for everyone, but that doesn’t mean we don’t get excited when someone joins us in making some extreme lifestyle changes.
A year and a half ago our friend, Yves, quit his $80K/year government job and sold his downtown condo. He now works 3 days a week in a grocery store and lives in a tiny bachelor apartment. Since we don’t often hear extreme downshifting stories like this, we met up with him a few weeks ago to pick his brain about his simple lifestyle and to ask him whether he has any regrets about the changes he made. Listen to what he had to say in our latest YouTube video.
Happy Exploring :)
