I effectively had a mid life crisis and ´dropped out´in 2012 leaving my life as I knew it and ran off to Spain. On a complete whim I bought a run down old olive farm on a shoe string of a budget which is located high in the Valencian mountains. I decided to live completely off grid relying only on solar for electricity and rain water collection and storage systems as my only water supply – after all I´d owned a ´John Seymour Self Sufficiency Book´since the age of 10 despite living in a pokey 2 bed apartment without even so much as a garden.
The farm is now restored to its former glory and I now produce and sell cold, first pressed olive oil which can be bought directly from me at a great price. SHOP HERE
Welcome to my blog, it is one woman´s ramblings about life in Spain, the challenges of off grid living and the ongoing story of arriving in Spain with effectively 4 words of Spanish, a suitcase, a one way ticket and a dream of doing something completely different with my life.
I truly believe that no one grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their dreams and ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up on your dreams wrinkles the soul.
