Monday, November 30, 2009
Timsbury UK- An economist has spent one year without a single penny spent. The British man called it the happiest period of his life.
The 30-year-old Mark Boyle lived his last year in a self-sufficient life. He lived in a caravan in Timsbury, near Bath, where he grew his own vegetables. He clothed himself by recycling garments that people had discarded. Furthermore, he used only a bike to get around, he took his phone calls in a call shops and showered himself with water heated by the sun. But he had a laptop but powered by solar energy. He received his Internet signal from a nearby farm.
Now for the next twelve months Boyle hopes to maintain his lifestyle once again. "I do not wish to return to a life that revolves around traffic, paying bills, going to the office and other forms of stress," he told British media. "This life has really liberated me".
