Highly Sensitive Nomad
A journey to hope in a world gone mad.
📍Current Location: Hautes Pyrenees, France (And this time, it’s for good!)
Once upon a time, I quit my job and gave away my possessions to live in a tent with a stranger called Flo.
Later, he built us an off-grid van to live in. And then one day, he even agreed to marry me! After a couple of years on the road, I decided I couldn’t sit on the side lines any longer.
I wanted to be part of building a healthier world, so we just settled down in a mountain cottage in the Hautes Pyrenees.
Why did I walk away from the life I had known before?
Well, I wanted to live a simple life close to nature, and to stop being part of a system that hurts people, animals and the earth.
I was sick of feeling helpless and sad about terrifying things like climate change. I didn’t want to carry on as normal when I might not have a future.
By connecting with nature, I found my hope again.
We have been so blessed by the kindness of strangers during our ramblings through Europe.
From our hitchhiking days to our vanlife, we really can’t believe how much goodness there is in the world.
We just settled down in a small mountain cottage. We are living a zero-waste lifestyle with our rescue dog and spending every day hiking in the mountains and swimming in the glacial rivers.
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
