Down/the Line is a web journal, documenting the day to day between surf, travel and life in a van. The idea is to share the spirit of far away lands and inspire people to get out there.
THIS IS US AND OUR GREAT AMERICAN JOURNEY
We are Mathieu and Ingrid Liot. A multicultural couple living on the road since February 2015. We are both surfers, artists, and highly aware of the need for change in human consciousness.
Our journey began in Sag Harbor, New York, and our ultimate goal is to get to Patagonia by van, rolling through the Panamerican Highway and surfing all the way down south.
We wish to document our daily lives through photography, illustrations, video and audio recording. We’d like to explore the way others live and share experiences with people we meet along the way. At the same, time create awareness of our environmental impact on climate change, and lead with example as we share some individual, easy options to live a less wasteful life. We want to celebrate the spirit of exploration, in the greenest possible way.
This adventure started as an impossible dream that we couldn't stop dreaming. It is a path that teaches us every day, some times with hard lessons. We wish to share our journey and hopefully inspire you to take the first step into the unknown. If you don't try, you will never know.
