About

8020living is all about ‘living life to the full,’ something that probably most of us would like to do but somehow don’t always achieve.

My name is Tina and I live, along with my husband Tim and our dog Mutt, in Nicaragua. We decided to move here just over a year ago to fulfil our desire to lead a simpler life and engage more fully in the voluntary work we enjoy.  Roughly every three months we return to U.K. to visit family and friends and to work as Complementary Health Practitioners.

Many friends and clients ask us about our life here, so this Blog will be partly about that – we are also regularly asked what do we do to maintain our own health given that we are travelling a lot and in many respects are living in a third world country with the health challenges that creates, so in this Blog we will also be sharing recipe ideas, things that we have found that work and also the supplements that we take.

      Thank you for popping by. Sadly our time in Nicaragua has been cut short again. Maybe you are there at the moment, I hope you are having a wonderful time – I’m missing it already! Tina
