It is about freedom and happiness.
Freedom is a deeply rooted core value that we both share and one reason we yearn for a more sustainable and independent lifestyle living off the land. This pursuit of freedom is ultimately about happiness and it is the result of a personal journey we like to call a life reboot.
For years we lived a rather nomadic lifestyle, hiking across the world, but when covid hit we chose New Zealand as our base. While we still love to explore, we are also ready to put down some roots. We want to feel a sense of belonging somewhere, and to contribute, both to the land and to the community. So we decided to follow a long-standing dream of finding a magical place to park up the bus and live off the land. We have always gone our own way and we share a deep desire to integrate into the rhythm of the natural world rather than falling in line and conforming. The homesteading dream brings us one step closer to realising a more sustainable and self-sufficient lifestyle. It brings us one step closer to freedom.
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, wow!”
