Ever since stumbling onto a posting on the MudGirls website of a cob workshop I have been committed to go, and I am happy to say that I will be attending a two week workshop with them in July on Salt Spring Island!!!
I have done no travelling before and have definitely never travelled by myself, but I am ready for whatever this adventure/learning experience has in store. I will be flying for the first time to Victoria, B.C., then taking a ferry to the island, where I will camp on Funky Revolution Farm and learn to build a cob oven and a cob store for farmers. I am beyond excited to just get to put my hands and feet in tons of dirt with fellow mud lovers. This opportunity is such a blessing, I feel ready to walk into the unknown realm of travelling alone to new places with just a backpack and a tent.
Woohoo to taking chances and following your dreams! Money smells, but let’s try to do what we can everyday and never fall under its spell, or become enslaved to it.
