Hi Robert! Welcome to Permies!
You found the right book to start you on your permaculture journey!
And you definitely found the correct place to chat and learn from others who have started down that road ahead of you!
All sorts of information avalable at your fingertips here! Spend some time looking around... come back often.... there is always somebody here who is happy to talk!
Howdy Robert. Always good to meet a fellow backpacker. There is much useful info & many helpful people available on this site. I added this thread to the Europe regional forum. Hope that helps you reach your goals & learn the things specific to your area. Enjoy the journey!!!
Argue for your limitations and they are yours forever.
I'm thinking of eventually settling down in New England somewhere, or at least somewhere where there's a change of seasons. I have a long road ahead on my homesteading journey - it's nice to meet fellow travellers who are heading to a similar destination!

Hi Mandy. I absolutely love Europe, but as far as a permanent destination goes...It's strange but I feel drawn to settling down in America (and visiting Europe whenever I can, of course).
Despite all of the things that I don't like in regard to the sort of mainstream american culture and leadership etc, I feel like an american. I identify more with the early pioneers and settlers than with the whole American Empire of Freedom (fries) kind of thing, but still, I feel like North America is my home and I'd like to do my part to make it a better place.
But who knows, maybe I'll end my days as a reindeer herdsman in Lappland :)
Welcome to permies, Robert!! You've definitely come to the right place! I've never seen such an incredible, comprehensive place ALL things renewable, replicable, resourceful, and truly earth-friendly homestead oriented, as this site. Throw in the genuine helpfulness, kindness, and deep knowledge of the people here, and you'll see why it's really my favorite site on the web, hands down.
