We always seem to get asked the same questions about living somewhat off grid in a motor home, to which the answers seem to spark a dozen more questions! So (to give our voices a rest!) here's the answers to our most frequently asked questions...

A Good Start

Posted 21/3/2014

I thought I had posted this already, but it seems I had left it in my blog word file! I tend to write things down as and when I think of them and when we're parked somewhere with good internet signal I type it up here so oops! Sorry for the delay! :)

I had a feeling that this would be a good year, having had a few fairly tough ones in a row perhaps I felt we deserved it, and so far it’s actually been pretty awesome! OK there’s still been the unavoidable parts of life such as death in the family already (my dear Granddad, the person to start a chain of inspired nature lovers, passed away in February) but of course you have to weigh these things out against each other and try to get on with your life. It’s been an array of little perks that have kept me happy so far like finding money (ranging from a few pennies to the brilliant fiver Ryan found!), getting a rare tax rebate, free stuff just when we needed it and so on...

Maybe it has something to do with positive thinking in that you attract what you put out, it could purely be luck of course, or perhaps the planets are in the right places for us? Either way I’m encouraged by the start to this year. 

We've been making sure to take the time to feel happy each day, which may sound a little strange but I think it's something we as humans, with our busy schedules and many distractions, forget to do so we don't ever remember being happy. Now before you think I've been hit with the crazy stick, I don't mean we do a weird hippy dance or anything but really just acknowledge when we notice we're feeling contented and relaxed, or when we're looking at a nice view! Perhaps even smile when you feel you can, why not? It really does help to keep the stress levels down and like the poem it can be infectious and you might even brighten someone else's day. If you haven't heard the poem before, you can read it below and then start smiling :)

Smiling Is Infectious - Author Unknown

Smiling is infectious,

you catch it like the flu,

When someone smiled at me today,

I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner and someone saw my grin.

When he smiled I realized I'd passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile,

then I realized its worth.

A single smile,

just like mine could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,

don't leave it undetected.

Let's start an epidemic quick,

and get the world infected!

About us:

My name is Sarah and in 2011 my husband Ryan and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK!

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life... read more>>
