Hello!  I’m Elizabeth.

A dreamer and lifelong wanderer, I have spent my life hopping jobs, countries and careers as I try to satisfy the curious adventurer within.

My inspiration comes from nature and wild, open spaces and I love exploring and pushing myself to do new things.

I have qualifications in aromatherapy, marketing and English teaching and apart from the occasional contract teaching Business or Business English, I have spent the best part of the last six years housesitting in France, Italy and Denmark, doing massage, taking photos, painting, potion-making, cycling on an ancient bike and swimming in pools, rivers and the sea.

Our current housesit is an organic Normandy farm where we are busy looking after chickens, dogs, cats and a huge overgrown vegetable garden.  We have our own cow to milk, fields to roam, caves to explore and a spring-fed pond for a morning dip.

Other things about me…

I am an introverted Leo (I guess that’s an oxymoron) to the point of being happily reclusive.  I class as INFP on the Myers Brigg scale

I LOVE swimming and have a slight addiction to swimming in cold water

I often experience overwhelm and regularly have to retreat for a spell of quiet contemplation

I’m a huge fan of bold intuitive painting – painting, like massage, makes me feel alive

One of my most life-changing experiences was shaving my head – I’ve done it twice now and I truly believe it is one of the most beautifully honest things you can ever do

When I am not online you can find me….

ambling around the countryside or nearest green space with my camera or notebook

journaling and writing – anything from random thoughts to short stories and ideas for novels

shopping in the local markets and eating simple local food

making healing balms and potions with herbs and essential oils

drawing, painting, experimenting with colour

hanging out and not taking life too seriously with this guy here

cycling to the beach with a picnic and my swimming things in my panniers

I hope you enjoy my blog.
