Dreams being lived

26th October 2012

Life is about Dreams.

And today, we spent time with two couples who are living their Dream.

John and Helen are giving “Location Independent” working a try.  They are originally from Bristol, UK, but for the next year, they will be living in the Alps, in France.  They both love the outdoors, and plan to spend their time enjoying the outdoor life the Alps has to offer.  John works for himself: he has written accounting software to help small businesses with maintaining their books and submitting tax returns at year end.  A very novel concept, and one which gives him flexibility in working location.  Helen works for an environmental consultancy, which has been forward thinking in allowing a trial period of her working abroad.

We also spent time with Buzz of buzzalps.com.  A property developer in the UK, he has combined all his loves and passions into creating BuzzAlps.com.  He found an old run-down building in a quiet village in the French Alps, and converted into a comfortable chalet.  During the winter months, he caters to families with children who are looking for family friendly ski resorts where they can be reasonable comfortable that their children will have an injury free skiing holiday.  Buzz has numerous bad experiences when his own children were growing up.  Bigger resorts tend to be much busier and frequently with speedy skiers and snowboarders, and he and friends have had instances of children being run down.  In the summer months, he enjoys his other passion – road cycling.  At this time, he provides knowledge for exploring the Alps by bicycle.

These are people who have inspired us to keep following our own dream.  They also remind us that there are options once we return from Kapp2Cape that don’t involve a 9-5 desk job.

We hope to meet others who are living their dream too – so if you know someone, please put us in touch with them.  Or, if you are living your dream and would like to meet us, do drop us a line.
