Strange as it may seem, but the vagabond is perfectly happy with his wandering existence outdoors. He's content to forego all the many creature comforts that the rest of us take for granted, such as a nice warm bed or a roaring fire in wintertime. As long as there's a heaven above him and a road beneath him, he'll be just fine.

The vagabond is determined to lead an existence close to nature, an almost animal-like existence in which he will let the changing seasons do their worst. Whether it's the frost of winter or the raging heat of summer, it's all the same to him.

And as he leads his solitary existence, wending his merry way along the highways and byways of the countryside, the vagabond can also happily go without those things that, for most people, are important components of any kind of life worthy of the name: wealth, hope, and love.
