On November 16 2019, Dave and I ventured to Portugal to experience life off the grid in relative isolation, unaware that in a few short months that isolation would no longer be quite so voluntary. We recently released a mini episode of The Psychedelic Suitcase podcast and YouTube video documenting our 37 hour journey from Odeceixe to Lisbon, through Frankfurt and London and finally arriving in Toronto.
The podcast starts of with a conversation we had while on a walk with with Jason Collier, Camilla Begotto and their 3 dogs. Jason and Camilla are two long term residents of the off grid animal rescue where we stayed, who became not only friends but family. We discuss life there, why they are choosing to live a psychedelic life and why they were drawn to live unconventionally.
The episode ends with Dave taking you on our journey from COVID lockdown at Batequim to our eventual return home to Canada, a mandatory 14 day quarantine and a return to the new normal.
