This blog records my 3000-kilometre bicycle trip up the east coast of Australia, researching a book about simple living.
On the way we’ll meet a variety of interesting characters — chefs and scavengers, farmers and gardeners, the young and the radical, the old and the wise — and learn something from each person’s life.
It’s a story about local food and community gardens, downshifting and DIY building, sustainability and self-sufficiency. But mostly it’s about people. I hope you enjoy meeting them as much as I have.
