Salty Kisses: Taste Life How It Is Meant to Be

Embracing lifestyle design, this is the road trip of two travel mates Maik and Dunja, who find out along the way what life is meant to be, beside all the horrible news. After one year of figuring out how to work and travel at the same time, without separating private life and working life, and another year of modifying a VW bus T6 in a SpaceCamper, they started a van life through Europe with their camper called BETTY WHITE PEARL . The first countries that were explored to go beyond the routine: snowy Austria, cosy Switzerland, stylish Italy and sunny Greece…

The result was a deep love for these countries, a re-connection to the landscape in the home region and nature, true contacts with people and business orders, a better concentration, creativity and even a full documentary about working life that will be coming out in 2017.
