From Beijing to Albertville without money
At a moment of my life where I was completely lost, came this crazy idea.
The result is by far the most intense, beautiful and meaningful experience of my life.
A return to generosity, disconnected from the financial aspect.
Nans and Mouts of “Nus et Culottés” then Pierre Rabhi and his “Happy Sobriety”.
The idea that we can’t live in the world we are currently living, of “always more” unlimited growth in a limited planet makes no sense. We should learn to live simply.
An approximate route with visas managed in advance and then just this map, in A4 in a plastic sheet.
On the other hand, a text that I got translated into the language of the country which says:
“Hello, I am a French traveler who set out the challenge to join Beijing to Paris without money to witness generosity, humanity and beauty.
My needs are just transportation, shelter for the night and some food.
If it’s your pleasure to help me cover one of these needs, I’ll be very grateful. ”
From there, a look, a smile and it’s gone for 2 months to live only on exchanges of immaterial wealth.
I managed to cross 11 countries.
Every single day was full of challenges, full of miracles!
I am working at writing a book about this experience.
