Having decided to take some time out from island life and do some exploring in Portugal, I couldn’t bear to leave my faithful friend behind, and as he’s my only friend over here, he’s undoubtedly going to feature quite prominently in my blogging. Apologies in advance if you’re not into dogs, but he is rather handsome and terribly good company.


All worldly possessions sold, gifted, dumped or left in storage with kind family and friends, pet passport sorted, Kangoo serviced, ferry booked and off we tootled.. I doubt our story’s going to be tremendously exciting but then I’ve probably had enough excitement in the last 20 odd years; this is more about finding a little peace and solitude, and escaping the reality of earning a salary for as long as I possibly can.

Special thanks go to Tom Oxenham, for introducing me to the world of workawaying https://www.workaway.info/ and convincing me that I’m not too old for it.. yet.
