Whether you are a day dreamer or living the dream, this website is for people curious about emigrating to the tropics!

I, Ray Talbot, have given up my job in the UK to pursue a life of self-sustainability in the rainforests of Ecuador. I have to learn about farming in the tropics, whilst working with the complex ecosystems here. At first I will be traveling to different farms around Ecuador to learn these skills and to see which type of rainforest I would like to settle in. I would also like to have a “shipwrecked” start, to produce the tools I’ll need for survival and comfort by hand so am learning from the indigenous people on how to do so. I have also had the fortune of experts in different fields contributing articles in all manor of subjects of interest to a garden variety gringo.
