No Boundaries : real lives of new Travellers and other members of the DIY counter culture

"...a beacon of hope for both now and the future. You can't afford to miss it!"
Friends and Families of Travellers Newsletter.

"....it made me want to throw off my shackles, get a truck and make a run for it."
SQUALL.


Very much 'postcards and pictures from the edge.' Personal accounts about travelling in France, Spain, Romania, Goa, Germany, Greece, South Africa and more. A wonderful evocation of personal struggles for the freedom to travel and to live non-stereotypical lives!

 

This is the real lives of new Travellers and other members of the DIY counter culture. Some are performers, street sellers, members of sound systems, living right on the edge. Others are in small family units enjoying the opportunities offered in different cultures; and access to land in both rural and urban locations.

No Boundaries tells their stories, lows and highs, struggles, defeats and victories.

Dianne in France: "So I arrived at Marseilles, couldn't understand a word, But I could drive and fix lorries."

Paul in Spain: "The priest will probably never see as many dreads, tattoos, combat boots, or indeed English speakers in his tiny church again."

Phoebus @ppollo in Czech: "There was a massive spinning laser which was competing with the constellations; and at the end of the drag, a bunch of nutters on a double-decker bus called the Crow Bar with a nice line in beer, burgers, and baby-food. It was technival. you know the sort. Technomad mayhem. Wheels and whizz. Sounds and space-cakes. A freak's fiesta. A wicked party."

Vanessa in southern Spain: "Over five years our community has grown and developed. With 26 babies born here it has become family oriented, although the energy of single people is still very welcome!"

Shelanagig on Europe and travelling: "For me, being a Traveller is about side-stepping the boundaries that the state tries to fence us in with. Some of these boundaries are implanted in our heads, encouraging us to be narrow-minded about the unfamiliar."

And the links with Romany/Gypsy tradition: "...nomadism, the struggle to achieve the right to travel - the right to stop, is part of a long and painful tradition."
