I’m in Portugal, most possibly the last stop on this great ride I’ve been on. I’m staying near Odeciexe, a beautiful little cobbled town with white buildings and shops selling clothes for hippies and travellers. Portugal is full of travellers it seems. I love it. It feels like you’re part of a community, transient, full… Read More Portugal: time slips away and skin scars.
Again and again, I’m reminded that it’s people that make or break an experience. People are what make me happy. This time, I rolled the dice and ended up with a bunch of stoners. It was an interesting experience. After three days and walking in to the kitchen to see the six hands of my… Read More Seville, Mairena del Alcor, marijuana and the journey to Portugal
My time in Slovenia been a real rollercoaster. I’ve seen some gorgeous sights, met some great people and faced some interesting challenges; through meeting new people, through bottling up my emotions and through working on a farm producing meat, when I don’t eat meat. It’s been over a month and I’m still struggling with the… Read More Exploring in Slovenia; what I saw from my workaway: Škocjanske jame, Gradišica, Materija and Kozina
So I’ve arrived at Workaway number 4 and it’s an experience far from anything previous. The first day was 9 hours long and I ended up with the worst sunburn of the trip, the worst headache and consumed an abnormally large amount of white foods. Dinner was eggy bread. It’s since improved but pasta is… Read More Slovenia. Working on a farm is a full time job.
Our first workaway is coming to an end. Whilst Stuart prepares a final supper for us and Aafke, I’m reflecting. I’m sad this fortnight is coming to an end. It’s been fantastic. A whirlwind. A great learning experience filled with wonderful people, stories and sun. These are the highlights… First things first: the people, Maud… Read More Workaway; permaculture, beekeeping, baking, cycling.
Workaway enabled us to make this trip what it is. We’ve started off incredibly well – at a fantastic place in northern Holland where we spend the days gardening and the evenings relaxing on the paving where it is sooo peaceful, especially in the evening sun. We’ve learnt a lot already – from the unusual… Read More Our new way of living; now, we are gardeners
I’ve long tried to live a less-wasteful life, but I haven’t committed to that as much as I’d like. As I made dinner yesterday – a stir fry, I used three plastic packets to make a meal for two people. I’ve had enough. We are addicted to plastic. One of the most important parts of… Read More Sustainable travel – products.
