Urban Camper Family

I recently came across an online text ad for a book called Urban Camping.

The book is about Peter and Andrea Tombrowski (and kids) who sold their car in 1998 to simplify their lives.

Now they walk everywhere. They live in Calgary. Most places are within five kilometers of their house.

They say,
"We like to call what we do 'urban camping' because we consider our life to be like a camping trip:

we need to be resourceful, creative, and exhibit mental and physical hardiness to get the most out of the experience.

And like camping, our life is an adventure.

Who needs mountains for escape and challenge?

We just open our door and head out for groceries with our kids."
I live in the Netherlands and we all bike everywhere. It's faster than walking.
