I am a freelance writer and green living consultant. My husband and I live in rural Scotland in a house with outbuildings that we hope to turn into our home and a garden we hope will provide most of our food. We have embarked on an experiment of semi-communal living, and there is a lot to do to turn this into our dream home! Still, we do love to travel as much as we can. The world is a big and beautiful place, after all. This blog will document our adventures in sustainable and engaged living, at home and away, as we work towards our goal of being as self-reliant as possible.
