Live how you want to.
27 October 2018
The fact I’ve bought the second book by Daniel is testament to this book. A man’s desire to lead a simpler life without a mortgage and associated expenses, to live in the countryside and enjoy a solitude which he, and many of us, are clearly comfortable with despite being mis-understood, is commendable.
It also provides a story-like grounding into narrow boat life, interwoven into the narrative. No, it’s not cold on a narrow boat, even in Winter. In fact, it can be too hot. The logistics of even obtaining firewood, and getting to work are challenges many of us don’t have to consider.
As with travelling, living in a van, being a writer – these are all different dreams many of us strive to follow but never chase because of the ‘risks’ of failure associated with them. In fact, with persistence, those goals can not only be reached, but obtained and the result is a far more rewarding and meaningful life.
Well done Daniel.
