Lately I’m reading more and more exciting stories about creative people who take their businesses on the road. Not by arranging expensive tours or projects abroad, but just by pimping a cheap old caravan and transform it into a vintage shop, art gallery or workspace.
Is it too early to call it a new trend? The financial crisis also hit hard in the creative industry. A caravan seems to be the perfect solution when you can’t afford to rent a workshop anymore. I somehow think it’s also connected to the webshop-fenomenon. Webshops and caravan shops both are low-key, very flexible an usually managed by one person. The big difference: it’s a very Real Life Experience to travel, meet people and sell stuff at the same time. It shows how work and traveling combined can be a unique, creative lifestyle that is free and simple. Downsizing doesn’t have to be a negative thing. A true inspiration for the year to come!
