About Us

Since deciding a few years ago that we would quit our jobs and seek a new life, Anna has cycled across Canada (www.annadoesadventure.blogspot.com), we’ve both cycled around Europe visiting rewilding projects (this blog), then we decided to move to northern Spain. There are places we can afford, the climate is ideal for us and we’re not too far from our families. We spent a year in Cantabria volunteering as gardeners whilst looking for a place of our own. We’ve now found the place of our dreams and are loving our new off-grid life in Asturias!

Dave still does a bit of work for the London office we used to work in, so we can get by at the moment whilst we do up the house and settle in before we think about how we’re going to make a living off the land.

We take workaway volunteers – check out our profile here https://www.workaway.info/446318533888-en.html

If you’d like to get in touch with us directly, you send us an email to forpeoplefornature at hotmail.com

    Hi Anna and Dave! – I am very inspired by yours and other travellers’ blogs and i’m also researching my own plans for ‘indefinite slow travel living’ through WWOOF-ing, HelpX-ing, conservation volunteering, cycle touring, hiking and sailboat crewing etc!.
    I was wondering – did you build up quite a bit of savings before you decided to live this way, or did you just go for it – knowing that you can generally sustain yourselves through working / volunteering etc whilst abroad.
    I’m thinking of continuing to work at my job in the UK for 5-ish years and investing most of my income in funds whilst also saving up an initial travel fund in a regular savings account – so that I can slow travel whilst living off the travel fund and the money invested will grow over the years in the background and I can draw on this later on in the future to sustain me pretty much indefinitely.
    Would love to hear your ideas on this?
