Why Did I Start Ethically Nomadic?

Ethically (adverb): in a way that relates to moral principles.

Nomadic (adjective): living the life of a nomad; wandering.

I thought as an introduction I would tell you two things that I aim to achieve in the future and hope will give you an idea of who I am. The first is that I would like to own a campervan, and (hopefully) live on a narrow-boat. The second is that I would like to help save our planet.

I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of owning a camper, I had posters of campervans hanging in my room when I was a teenager. Cars have never really interested me; I thought ‘Why would you buy a car when you can have a campervan? It’s a car AND a house!’ That’s a thought I still stand by, I haven’t yet learned to drive and when I do I aim to have a campervan as my “first car”. I love the thought of being able to go anywhere, it gives you the freedom to go for a drive and if you feel like staying there overnight, well, why not? This goal, and that of living on a narrow-boat makes for a great way to explore the natural environment as well as teaching oneself to live within their means by carrying everything you really need in one small space and no more.

Now for saving the planet. It’s a pretty broad spectrum, right? That true. I don’t plan on using this website to tell you have to live your live because everyone has different circumstances and ultimately the problem that we’re facing of climate change is a systemic issue. But what I can do is let you know what I’m up to, the little changes that I’m making each day to show society where I want my money to be spent. After all, we do vote with our money; every extra pound that we spend buying a low waste deodorant instead of a version entirely made of plastic makes a difference.

Primarily, I am a writer. I studied English at university and love to write. Sharing what I learn and allowing others to learn themselves will always be a main priority and interest of mine. That’s why I’ve started this site. I want to share with you what I have taught myself, which will largely be to do with the natural environment or to do with my ethical views because they are the topics I enjoy learning. I am not here to tell you to do anything or force you to change your views. You have your ethics and I have mine, those will not be exactly the same; they may overlap in certain places, but it’s highly unlikely that they’re going to match 100%. But if there is something you would like to learn, then hopefully I can give you some information to help you teach yourself how to achieve your own goals and ethical viewpoints.
