Living The Dream

Ever wondered if there’s more to life? Meet three young people who are ditching the 9-5 and taking the road less travelled to follow their dreams.

Ever wondered if there’s more to life? Meet three young people who are ditching the 9-5 and taking the road less travelled to follow their dreams. No rent, no office, no distractions and no pressure.

First up there’s Zeki Basan, a survival expert who describes the remote glens of the Scottish Highlands as both his playground and his office. Then there’s Brother John who is dedicating his life to God at a beautiful Benedictine monastery in Somerset. And finally, there’s illustrator Jess Wheeler, who lives off-grid on the banks of an estuary in Suffolk.

They’re just three members of a growing counter-culture movement in the UK that’s seeing more and more people adopt alternative lifestyles. So what happens when you flip the script on life? Find out with Zeki, Jess and John as they describe how it feels to take another path.
