we have just finished our eco holiday in the countryside, and in a few words; -its been great!!! we did not have any running water or toilet so our basic needs has been put to the test, but we did have green fields in every direction and plenty of quality time together, cooking and eating outdoors and playing garden games and most importantly -laughing a lot! its been a long time since I have felt this happy and the fact of waking up to bird song and the smell of coffee and going to sleep to the sound of silence with the people you most love -makes you wonder what else you need?!? its also felt great to avoid plastic and toxins as far as possible and I am reading ‘Zero Waste Home’ which is further inspiring to some life changes… now my next challenge is to start and grow our own food however that will have to wait to next summer as the season is very short here. But we did come over some eco meet as one elk got killed by a car and my partner (who is a chef) was called out to help butcher the dead animal (am not very comfortable with killings and cutting raw meet so have decided to not post any pictures from this event) but he was extremely happy about this and kept saying “darling its ecological!!!!” anyhow, we all make our choices…happy holidays!!
