SELF RELIANT LIVING ON A REMOTE ISLAND (full tour)
There’s a lot to be said about self-reliance and minds far greater than mine have already written extensively on the subject. But I think Gandhi summed it up nicely when he said, “Everyone wants to be strong and self-sufficient, but few are willing to put in the work necessary to achieve worthy goals”.
Soo damned true!
There’s tremendous freedom to be found in self-reliance, but it does require a lot of work. Which is why we admire those who are working hard towards it. And occasionally, we meet some truly inspiring characters who have indeed achieved worthy goals.
The Sheen family on the remote island of Nomuka are now among our faves. Dave, Tris and Dior have built a unique off-grid, animal-filled, and self-sustainable home. They are incredible sailors, explorers, nature lovers, and thankfully they are not camera shy.
Join us for a look into what life is like on the remote island of Nomuka in the South Pacific. Complete with climbing trees for food, swimming with horses, and cooling off with a cold coconut at the end of every day.
AND, Dior is a future award-winning chef!!! She has an Instagram page dedicated to her delectable, island-grown yummy bytes you will want to check out. That way you can say I discovered her in her early days, before she became famous.
Inspiration & Help Needed
As if the Sheen family wasn’t nice enough already, they have helped create the NICE Society (Nomuka Island Conservation Environment Society)
A community-run society created for the people and environment of Nomuka. They are undertaking huge projects to help tackle local issues like rubbish, animal welfare, and protecting the marine environment. You can learn more about the society and inquire about donating or volunteering on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/nomukaislandconservationenvironmentsociety/
The Comedic Extra’s
They may ask for a retraction but I am gonna share Tom and Cyril’s Instagram too. Because if you find yourself in Tonga anytime soon, you should bring them a bottle of rum in exchange for a few stories.
