The Roots

Welcome to our trials and tribulations as we leave for the next chapter. We are swapping careers and moving from house to 4 wheels as we set off for the Highlands. The plan is to become nomadic working in the UK for the summer and then much like the birds heading as far south as possible in the summer.
