A month in Istres (Don’t think of Tunisia, don’t think of Tunisia)

Posted on by Michael

After our month-and-a-bit-long journey from central France to southern France, with a minor detour via Copenhagen, we’re ready to be static for a while. I’ve spent many long hours trawling through databases of French campsites, trying to find one in Provence that’s (a) not obscenely expensive, and (b) open. There aren’t very many that fall under those categories at this … Continue reading

Project House-Sit-Lygos-Farm-Without-Killing-the-Pets a Success! (R.I.P. 1 Chive Plant)

Posted on by Katherine

Spring has sprung, which means it’s time to say goodbye to Lygos Farm and venture out into the big wide world again. We have mixed feelings about this. We’ve really enjoyed working steadily on our projects and all of the comforts of living in a house. We’re a bit worried that going back to live in Nettle is going to … Continue reading

Winter in a Country Cottage in Wales

Posted on by Katherine

As I write this, I feel stupidly lucky. This house-sit really couldn’t be any more perfect. It’s quite literally, everything we were hoping for in a house-sit. It’s nestled in a valley amongst gently rolling hills in the picturesque Welsh countryside. The property and surrounding countryside has a generous smattering of those trees with the curly branches that I so … Continue reading

Exmoor National Park in Autumn

Posted on by Katherine

Well, we’ve finally done it and left Cornwall! When we decided to settle down in Cornwall for a bit and get some work done, neither of us anticipated we’d be there for six months! Until recently, we hadn’t any idea what we were going to do over winter. We didn’t particularly fancy travelling during winter, but nor did we want … Continue reading

Reflections on being digital nomads, one year in

Posted on by Michael

Katherine: Our one year digital nomad vagabonding anniversary came and went the day before yesterday unacknowledged. This time last year we awoke to our new tabula rasa life in a BnB in Camden, London having just flown in the day before. I think a little reflection is in order. Then On the 31st May last year I wrote this in … Continue reading

Siena Duomo – The Gothic Marvel the Renaissance Forgot

Posted on by Katherine

Hooray – this blog is about to get another perspective, and probably a much more interesting one than I usually come up with! My partner Katherine is going to start writing entries here, and this is the first of many to come. Read on: We’ve been travelling through Europe for seven months now and have developed a sort of astronomically … Continue reading

Pretending to be Romans

Posted on by Michael

Wow, we’ve really got slow travelling down now — we’ve stayed at the last two places for more than two weeks! It’s a very, very relaxed pace which occasionally invokes tiny stabs of guilt for me (we should be racing around seeing everything we possibly can!), but it permits us to make a proper life of it, and that’s one … Continue reading

Walking to Amalfi

Posted on by Michael

We’ve had a few days of inactivity (Katherine: recovery!) after our last walk, and lots of rain and cold (and staying inside in the warm, all cosy!). We continually surprise ourselves with our sometime reluctance to do things that we have dreamed about for years. This time, it was walking along the Amalfi coast (Yeah, I know. Bring on the … Continue reading
