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...

My Personal Favourites: Fiction

Of all the books I’ve read and enjoyed, that have spirited me away to far away realms and exciting adventures, how can I choose a favourite? See below for my personal choice of the best fiction I’ve enjoyed and would thoroughly recommend!


Chocolat by Joanne Harris

Whimsical, magical, and funny too. You might have seen the film, but there’s far more to the story so don’t let that stop you from reading it.

Chocolat pushes you to question what we are really all doing here, how by with holding from ourselves we're in danger of refusing ourselves or losing the very peace, love and happiness we're chasing all along. Deep stuff from a light read – a perfect holiday book with a box of chocolates on hand!



The Chronicles of Duncton Wood by William Horwood

William Horwood, legendary storyteller with 21 books to his name and now Chair for the Society of Authors, has the ability to tell stories from an animals perspective in an astonishing clarity. Yes, the chronicles of Duncton Wood is a story about moles! 

Never again will you view a woodland in quite the same way as you wonder what the moles and other creatures are really up to out of sight! ;) But animal stories are for kids right? Trust me it actually has some quite extreme and twisted violence portrayed throughout so is anything but a children's book!


Earths Children by Jean M. Auel

This series of books, lent to me at just the right time in life, is was what first prompted me to want to learn about Herbal Medicine and Wild Edibles. The Earths Children series consists of 6 books starting with The Clan of the Cave Bear and is based at the end of the last Ice Age (around 35,000 years ago) following the life of an orphaned Cro-Magnon girl taken in by a group of Neanderthals and her subsequent attempts to find her purpose and be accepted despite her many differences.

These books amidst terrific action, adventure (and some adult themes too!) push you to question what it really is to be human, and explore the mystery of the world, of religion, art, love and belonging.


The Stonor Eagles by William Horwood

William Horwood, legendary storyteller with 21 books to his name and now Chair for the Society of Authors, has the ability to tell stories from an animals perspective in an astonishing clarity. The Stonor Eagles is loosely about an artist preparing for his latest sculptural exhibition in New York; you are taken along the path of how it all came to be but beyond that you are also caught up in the story of the last wild Sea Eagles in Britain (before their latest reintroduction).

A book thatexplores the harshest aspects courage andlove, of dreams and suffering, and the constant struggle to survive that we share with all creatures.

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>>
