Let’s be honest. You’re not here because you want to know about me, you actually want to know what this site is all about. And whether it’s going to interest you. Well, my name is Jane, and The Compact Cook is my take on: travel; photography; blogging; health and wellbeing; decluttering; and yes, plenty of kitchen stuff too.
Everything I write about here is either stuff I find useful or things that really interest me, and I hope some of it will interest you too. I guess you could sum it all up as a ‘travel and lifestyle’ blog. But not the kind where I post endless pics of myself doing star jumps in designer gear on the top of mountains …. more tips and tricks I have picked up travelling several months of the year, plus the things I do to regroup when I am back home in Nottingham.
PLUS … and this is an even bigger problem … actually organising and keeping track of the thousands of photos you end up taking is a modern day problem that I am gradually getting better at. Photography used to be so expensive and so it was a much more contained hobby. In the digital age organising your photos is an issue that has to be solved if you want to make any sense of them when you look back.
But I’m not just going to talk about healthy lifestyles. When you spend weeks on the road in a motorhome, you quickly learn what you really need … and what you don’t. I absolutely love the freedom of living with very little. Less clutter means more time to be, think and do. Seriously. So when I come home I want to retain that feeling of living light. I am a bit of a minimalist. Living well with less means having good systems for budgeting, organising, cleaning. Useful life hacks. Then getting on with the things that are important. Simplify your life and live more.
