The Unexpected Gypsy – Downsizing my wardrobe…

Fotor_149857824086344

I am feeling very inspired during the process of downsizing the contents of my wardrobe. This may sound like a frivilous and superficial activity, and, it may well be to someone else. But, to me, it has turned into a very long, and very important unfolding (!) and a layered progression of personal growth. And also a realisation that I have far too many skirts and not enough space to store them! Due to my ‘Unexpected Gypsy’ lifestyle there are certain practical limitations and comfort restrictions I have to manage. Principally being; the fact of having tiny van-size cupboards to…

The Unexpected Gypsy… Part 1

IMG_2699

Here I am, still living my life as a nomadic, van-dwelling, house-sitting, free-spirit even though I find it really hard a lot of the time! I am sharing here the first post of a new series for my blog, which is entitled; The Unexpected Gypsy. Most of my life is in flux. A constant state of transition, instability and flow. There is no plan. I wrote a blog post after our first year of travelling where I share about living with the ‘no-plan-plan.’ I live wild and free, from place to place with an intention on slow travel wherever possible….

How I learned to take care of myself again…

Fotor_149477759924893

Hi! Here I am! I have not been regularly blogging nor have I been showing my face in quite some time. Maybe because winter months always make me want to hibernate and maybe because a lot of sad things happened last year which made me melancholy and want to hide myself away. And truthfully I had not been taking care of myself very well at all. But, I have been recalibrating, finding my balance in the discombobulation (favourite word!) that is life and nuturing and restoring to the max. My self-care tool box contains some extra non-negotiable items these days….

Living in that in-between-place (part3)

Fotor_149192415657350

Just sitting with my cup of tea, asking myself the question of; ‘what do I want next?’ And, for the past few months I really didn’t know. I am starting to see. I am starting to realise that even the short-term, in-the-moment choices we make can massively impact the course of life. And, that it REALLY matters to me more than ever now. It’s hard to explain the complete ‘unsettledness’ that goes hand in hand with the absolute (joyous) freedom of living a slow-travel and nomadic lifestyle. We have had no home, nest, base for over three and a half…

Re-opened my Etsy Shop!

IMG_3805

I know I haven’t updated my blog for quite a while now but I have still been creating in my studio and still travelling too! I have re-opened my Etsy Shop this week and just wanted to put a little mention here. One of the paintings has sold already! I will probably be adding limited edition prints here too but am still in the process of finding a professional printer that I like. I am not sure when I will write more as the travels and intermittent internet make it sometimes challenging to keep up with things here. And, also,…

Finally settling after Two and a Half Years on the road???

IMG_1859

After only two months in the UK, we are starting to get itchy travel feet again! Don’t get me wrong – I do like the UK, but, I just don’t feel right here anymore. Spending the last two and a half years slow-travelling through six countries in our van, and some wonderful house-sits in between, we really are clarifying what we truly enjoy most about the different locations. We have been so fortunate to end up in this gorgeously secluded farm. With a cat to take care of and the wildness of the North Yorks Moors literally on our (sometimes…

The BEST 5 Things about House Sitting…

IMG_1841

  House-sitting really is so fun and it fits so well into our nomadic ‘van-life’ lifestyle right now. Not only does it give us interesting places to stay and stop and rest, but it gives the home-owners peace of mind while they are away too. A win-win. We love those. It is always especially enjoyable if we have pets to look after too and we have a lovely cat here called Missy! Here are some other benefits and joys for us when we are house-sitting.   Having a postal Address! I have to be honest, sometimes not having a postal…
