My Dream Life

Here’s a post of things that I think about when I think about my dream life. A life I am working toward building right now every day.

Home is where the Heart is…
La Gomera – The Canary Isles
I have traveled to the canary islands on a few occasions spending several seasons there. My favorite being Gran Canaria in the middle of the island where all the little villages spread along the mountains. We plan on visiting La Gomera in 2016 for a week or so to get a feel for what it has to really offer. One thing we both certainly know is that we will not live the rest of our lives in England. Could this be home?

Grow Your Own –
We both love the idea of growing all or most of our own food right on the land we live on. Because we want to live in an exotic hotter climate we believe as vegans we could live nicely on our own grown exotic fruits and vegetables. Also grow our own plants that have natural healing powers. I have already been studying the medicinal properties of plants and continue to do so in preparation for some amazing life changing coming my way šŸ˜‰

Renewable Energy
The Canary Islands are hot, sunny and often windy. In fact if you look at a map of the Canary Islands just off the coast west from Northern Africa, you will see it’s much more sandy along the east of the isles. This is where the La Calima comes in, which is a sand storm swept in from the Sahara Desert of Africa. Every few years this also brings the locusts too :O Anyway due to these 2 factors it’s a perfect location for both solar energy and wind energy and dependent upon need we would be willing to have both and get rid of normal electricity from fossil fuels.

What about work?
My dream has always been to work in a field in which I may be able to bring other people joy and happiness or help them to find it within themselves. This is something I’m working on at the moment. But my idea would be how wonderful it would be to be able to create a getaway retreat where people can come and relax away from their busy lives and center their energy and restore balance. Then hopefully they can leave with new insights and new happiness that can spread through to their friends and family and all they come into contact with.

and for fun?

Well as you all know my main love in life is running. La Gomera is not a huge island but it certainly has some amazing mountainous trails to be treaded through. I will be checking those out next year.la_gomera_forest_trail-542x600

Also I would like to spend more time doing meditation and yoga. I live in the city and even though I’m behind closed doors the energy is always busy within the city. Sometimes it’s hard to find true peace that I have found in a quiet serene environment.

If we have the space I would also like to liaise with any local animal sanctuary type places. This would be so that if any animal should need a place to live or their lives would be at stake then I hope they could contact us. It would be nice to be able to give them a retreat too so they can get better and hopefully be let back into the wild.

I would also be keen on continuing to blog about the things I learn in life. Sharing these with my friends even if they are mainly online friends I trust they will be friends for life now.

I would like to learn the lands of the island. Learn what can be foraged from the wild to be eaten or used as medicine and take as needed but leave what is not needed.

I would like to continue using and building on the Spanish language I have been learning on and off for the last 7 years. Spanish is such a beautiful language that melts my heart every time I hear it spoken šŸ™‚

Running –

I will become a regular ultra runner. I am not sure how much I will get to travel from my new home but I will from time to time. Beyond that I will run often around my home. In the meantime I wish to run Pennine Way, Thames Path, South West Coast Path, Grand Union Canal and would like to run the entire perimeter of the England, Scotland and Wales mainland covering over 5 000 miles.

I am creating my future now so it can become a reality. This blog was mostly for me to be creating but if you happen to be reading this then you saw the whole thing. So thanks for reading.

All my love
