Hello. I’m Gill, a downshifter. I used to introduce myself as a physiotherapist but gave that up 4 years ago to change my life before it was too late I.e. I wasn’t physically able. I have been running ski chalets in the French Alps since. In summer my partner and I have worked on horse ranches in Canada and cattle stations in Australia. We now do yacht deliveries. In my spare time I have started to write about our adventures. I couldn’t have imagined living like this but feel very fortunate to be able to live my dream in my 50s. I look forward to reading about your lives and experiences.
