Season #2 is live: 'Home from Home'

Jun 25, 2021

Listen now:

Turn the world’s bucket lists upside down, sift through the contents and you’ll find a handful of wishes that show up time and time again.

One of those is to uproot and move to a foreign land, maybe build a house, perhaps on a hill surrounded by trees, close to calm waters where one can live out life in peace.

It’s a heady ideal, to escape the rat race. It’s little more than a pipe dream for most of us.

But some people, despite the obstacles that plague us all ( lack of time, money, correct circumstance etc) trust in themselves enough to chase the dream. Scotty Braggins, today’s guest, is one of those.

Scotty will not allow you to describe him as exceptional. He sees himself as run-of-the-mill, unexceptional. But he is far from ordinary.

He is as grounded and earthy as the soil he turns to make way for the home he is building, by hand, in the beautiful Portuguese countryside for his partner, two dogs and their future idyllic life.

This is a special interview with a special, ‘ordinary’ man. When you listen, you’ll hear that it has not been easy. Far from it. Within Scotty’s hardships are lessons for us all.

Each step of his journey, although not visiting temples, churches or hallowed grounds, is every bit a pilgrimage, every bit a voyage of self-discovery. Scotty’s story is a blueprint for others who would like to do the same.

As ever, I hope you love this episode, and please take the time to share it with someone you think might benefit.

Until next time.

Lots of love.

Matt and the team x 😊🙏🏻🙏🏻
