Miriam Lancewood is a true wild woman. She and her partner Peter left civilisation behind in 2010 and went to live in the wilderness in New Zealand. She learned to hunt for their feed and experienced a complete lifestyle transformation as she adapted to a world away from technology, traffic, and convenience. In this episode, we talk all about her life in the wilderness, how she copes with isolation and boredom, her thoughts on the modern world, walking 2000 kilometres across Europe, the importance of a good night's sleep, and a whole lot more. Miriam is a fascinating woman who has chosen to live a life that many of us might dream of, but few will ever do.
If you're interested in learning more about Miriam, she wrote a book about her life in 2017, called Woman in the Wilderness.
