This guy took a leap of faith and quit his job to live in a converted van so that he could travel the world. Mike Hudson lives with the bare necessities and for adventure. After downsizing his possessions, quitting his job, buying a big van and converting it, he started his new life. Here is part of his story from his blog:
March the 8th 2014, I booked a last minute ferry ticket from Dover to Dunkirk and got my two mates (Ross and Matt) on-board for the first part of the journey. We drove South through France and Spain. The journey has started. I am doing my dream; I can comfortably live wherever I want (See I am off-grid). I am temporarily free and in control. The next thing I need to figure out is how to make this last for as long as I like.
