Lifestyles Encountered on Tour?

One interesting aspect of touring can be seeing or getting a sense of other lifestyles, or other ways of living or approaching life.

Are there any particularly attractive, striking, different, unusually good, or memorable lifestyles you have come across while touring?

On one recent tour, I met a couple touring who were basically itinerant musicians, travelling all over the world on their bicycles.

I encountered this guy, who just retired and lives on a bike.

He was into 100 mile days then. I was like relax enjoy yourself you may never be here again. Now he is starting too enjoy touring.

He pretty much has been in every state almost and has 25,000 miles. Great journal read.
Although he stopped and we are not sure what is going on.

I am very proud to have toured with him at least one day and two nights.
