About Me


To build my own house


After 1.5 years travelling in Venezueala, Caribbean, Mexico, USA and Canada with a VW bus I came back to Norwich, UK to finish my degree (International Development and Spanish) at UEA. Last spring/summer me and my boyfriend James were travelling in Europe, visiting, volunteering and working in different sustainable self-build-sites. We are into sustainable buildings, being self-sufficient. Our mission is to build our own house. The more I learn the more I am into that natural life style, permaculture etc. Life is good and I like to enjoy it! I just enjoy doing stuff, going to places, discovering new things, making schemes how earn money without selling my soul etc etc..


dream...because dreams actually come true
