I don’t know whether it’s the book I’m reading, or this workaway, but I feel like my life is changing. My perspectives, my beliefs, my misconceptions are all being challenged and are changing. I’m finding myself questioning things I’ve never before questioned and the behaviours I possess that I thought were innate (or something I… Read More In Hamburg, we build on our skills and open our minds
48 hours in Rotterdam flew by as we tried to re-align ourselves with city life after two of the happiest weeks in the Dutch countryside. Rotterdam is a melting pot of experimental architecture, rich and poor, culture and class.

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.
