About Us

Hello and welcome! It’s so nice to have you join us on our journey. We’re Didier and Lisette, a couple who, in 2021, decided to trade the hustle and bustle of life in the Netherlands for the serene landscapes of Norway. After renting for two years, we finally put down our roots by purchasing a house in 2023. We’ve embarked on a unique adventure to live life as self-sufficiently as possible, and we’re thrilled to share our experiences with you.

Our life in Norway revolves around connecting deeply with nature. We grow, catch, forage, and make as much of our food as we can. This lifestyle choice began as a fun experiment, a shift from the norm, but it soon evolved into a passion fueled by the incredible health benefits we noticed.

The Netherlands will always have a special place in our hearts. It was where we studied, worked, and experienced life to its fullest. However, the yearning for a more natural existence, a life interwoven with the rhythm of nature, led us to our haven here in Norway.

We understand that our choices may not align with everyone’s lifestyle or preferences. This life, surrounded by sprawling forests and quiet mountains, may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But we believe in the power of sharing stories. We share our experiences because we’ve found that many people yearn for a change, seeking the tranquility and fulfillment that a life closer to nature can bring.

Our hope is that through our journey, you’ll find the inspiration you’re looking for, whether it leads you to the frost-kissed wilderness of the north or the sun-drenched beaches of the south. There’s a place in this world for all of us to call home, to live authentically and joyfully.

Join us on this journey of self-sufficiency and natural living. We may be a bit crazy at times, but it’s all part of the fun!
