Building my “own nest”

I cannot agree more with Henry David Thoreau when he writes in Walden “Our houses are such unwieldy property that we are often imprisoned rather than housed in them.” That’s why instead of becoming the unfortunate owner of a house or an apartment I decided to become the owner of Karmavan: a beautiful, 2014 Mercedes … More
