Couple quit their jobs to become nomads travelling around Europe
A young couple are ‘living the dream’ by travelling across Europe in their converted van with two dogs after ditching the nine to five for a nomadic life of wild swimming, surfing and hiking. Fed-up with the rat race, former IT consultant, Kieran Field, 27, and former accountant, Alice Ballard, 26, gambled everything on a £7,000 van to create their new home on wheels – complete with a double bed, compostable toilet beneath the sofa, one-square-metre kitchen and outdoor shower. Quitting their jobs and renting out their renovated two-bed semi-detached house in Oxford to fund their new lifestyle, Kieran and Alice began their adventures in the north of France in August 2020. In the two years since, they have covered 25,000 miles across 16 European countries.
