Life with Less

Life can be heavy. And life can be full. The difference is worth considering.

Here you will find our ruminations about and adventures toward a Life with Less.




Does it make the world go round? Are there alternatives? Lots of people seem to think so.

– When we were traveling in Colombia, our money started running out. Here’s how that felt.


We all dream of a job we love, that makes money less of an issue. But isn’t there more to work than this?

– Our new friends in Bogota help us to find fulfilling work, with no money involved.

– We have been doing some volunteering on our travels.


There aren’t any alternatives to this! But there needn’t be, there’s an abundance of it in the world. 

Coming soon…


It isn’t all rent and mortgages. There’s wild-camping, squatting, sleeping rough, couchsurfing, cooperative living etc.

Coming soon…


Plane tickets cleaned us out, hitchhiking set us free. You’d be surprised how you can get from A-B, and how important C can be.

 We decided that we’d start hitchhiking.

– We hitchhiked from Colombia to Ecuador.


Well, it’s worth thinking about, innit.

– As we confronted the inevitability of our money running out, we looked back.

– The Moneyless Man– Mark has been living without money for many years now.

Not for the Dinner Table

Defecation, periods, sex, alcohol, infections, parties, urine stains and saddle sore.

Coming soon…

  1. Love Uncertainties! I am looking forward to breaking free from just using my blog for study (Internet Communication B.A)
    Never mind that – I do love your site. My partner read my blog and promised me a camping trip, at least that’s something, I can’t wait to get back on the road – or off the beaten track as we prefer. Cheers and Happy Travels.


    • Hello Silentgalah, and thank you for your kind words! So, you will be off of the beaten track soon…that is great! A camping trip sounds great too. Make sure the promise is kept! Though we camp a lot here, part of me is very excited for when I return home and can camp out in the beautiful English woodland!
