Simple Living

The best thing I ever did was to become a minimalist. It’s what enabled me to save thousands of pounds so that I had the security to quit my job. It allowed me to let go of the idea that processions can make me happy and to learn to value experiences instead.

Most adventurers know how to live for a long time with very little. And it is a great way of life. When I hiked the length of Israel, I had just a backpack which carried my home and everything I would need to not just survive but have the best time of my life.

Nature is an adventurers playground

I’m committed to doing my bit for the planet. I’m a vegan (did you know cutting back on meat and dairy is one of the most effective ways you can reduce your footprint?!). I don’t have a car. I don’t buy a lot of needless possessions – gadgets, clothes, household ‘stuff’. I reduce my plastic usage.

I’m not perfect by any means I try to live by the 80% rule. You don’t have to cut back all of the time but if we all put in 80% the world would be doing a lot better.

My Conservation Work

In 2017 I took part in a brilliant conservation program with Utila Dive Centre called GoEco. It equipped me with lots of skills and knowledge to help in marine conservation. Since then I’ve been looking for projects and volunteering that I can get involved with. I organised the Paddle Pickup expedition, kayaking the full width of the UK picking up plastic rubbish (we collected over 3000 pieces!). And initiated a whale shark eco project on the island of Mafia.
