How we got started

Welcome to The Rees Family Adventures where we hope to share with you our journey and explorations.

Our story, like many others, underwent a significant transformation a few years ago.

Our Journey To A Slower Paced Life

Well, a few years ago we were living very different lives, a life that felt like a never-ending race.

Full-time jobs, a rather expensive home, and the hustle and bustle of the everyday grind left us feeling exhausted and disconnected as a family. The children were attending school and we were living the standard life of being constantly busy, and the only time we spent as a family was when we were at our worst; when everyone was knackered and grumpy.

Add some physical and mental health issues to that mix and you get a pretty miserable existence. We didn’t realise how unhappy and unfulfilled our lives had become.

A Life Altering Shift

When Covid hit, it was a real eye-opener for us. The world came to a halt, and suddenly, we found ourselves having time—real time—to spend together as a family. We felt happier, healthier, and more connected than ever before.

It became clear that we couldn’t go back to our old way of life. 

Choosing A Different Path

As life gradually returned to normal, the stress, exhaustion, and the physical and mental health issues we had left behind came back in full force. It was a wake-up call. We realised that we couldn’t keep living that way. So, we made a bold decision.

We pulled our children out of school to embark on a home education journey, sold our house, opted for a simpler, lifestyle, and I (Stacey) left my job.
