Emma Just Wants a Simple Life

Daily Mail interviews Oxford Graduate Emma Orbach, who has chosen a simple way of life in the Welsh hills.  David Wilkes reports for Daily Mail:

  • Emma Orbach, 58, has shunned society, living in a mudhut she built herself
  • The Oxford graduate named her home Tir Ysbrydol, which means ‘spirit land’ in Welsh, where she has banned technology
  • She fetches water from a stream and keeps three goats, seven chickens and two horses
Orbach explains, “I don’t miss anything at all about what is normally called reality. The quality of life, in my view, is decreasing and everything is speeding up and becoming  more stressful.”

She gets water from a nearby spring and uses candles to light her mud hut.
