In 2013, the authors Nilmini & Steven left the security of their home and jobs to volunteer and travel through numerous communities in Europe, in search of answers to the questions that they had been asking about collaborative and sustainable living solutions. They finished the year in Sri Lanka, visiting a couple of eco-villages and spending time with family.
It was an incredible year of spontaneous living, of forging new friendships, of learning the meaning of collaborative living and taking another step toward figuring out their own solution! They were amazed at the transition already happening in so many villages and cities in Europe and hope that a transition to a low carbon future will be a global reality one day.
I am an Australian artist and engineer, passionate about travel, writing and photography. While I grew up in Sri Lanka, I spent 9 years in California and a year teaching English in South Korea before migrating to Australia in 1998. I now share a home in a northern suburb of Sydney with my partner where I wake up each day to the sounds and sights of the Australian bush. I am inspired by the natural world around me and by the sense of freedom and adventure in the people I meet while travelling. I have always had a 'spiritual' connection to nature and prefer to travel close to the ground so I can better connect with the local culture, people and the natural environment around me. I hope that these photographs will inspire you to discover, pursue and fulfill your own dreams.
