One may think that those "dropping out" of the daily rat race, bring up all those envy driven prejudice towards the so called "Cheapies" living under the shade of coconut palms, - stop it, its all wrong.
To be FREE isn't easy at all. Right away no one cares about you, i can do what i want whenever, whatever. Not really, as at first the physical and so the psychological conditions need to be healthy. As no one will tell you to check on your health, so no one tells you to be aware of "bad habits", no one to lean on a cosy shoulder. and last but not least, there is no salary by the end of the month. Alone, singled out.
Well, after many years, so observed, things are sorted out as to the extent that those surviving "Cheapies" became a minority, a minority who knew to respect others, to respect other beliefs and cultures and therefore achieved mental freedom.
Thanks to Bee and all those who I met on my way to search for the truth.

Some of my activities during my time off the system:
Those 20 years on our Indian Dhow "S.V.AUM GAIA" as my hardest work time! No laying in the hammock to get nicely a brown taint as one may think. Sweating and sunburns, no one to lend a hand as those ones who joined to fulfill their dream left in no time disillusioned. And its not only the maintenance of the over 50 years old Indian Dhow who keeps its 2 crew busy, Nature asks to be vigilant 24 hours every day. On top of it, we had to spend money to be able to work, except when we made charter.
Forced by reason of health, we had to give away (not sold!) our floating home and consequently had to adapt to a new life again, with at first no other option than to go back to Europe to make money in a responsible way. Energy saving appealed to us and so we engaged to introduce the product ECOJET all over Switzerland. A simple and affordable application to reduce liquid and gaseous fuel consumption in engines and heating systems.
ECOJET Modules, the Fuel saving for liquid fuel like petrol/diesel around 8%, for gas 2.5% -3.5% (verified).
