Hello! I'm Rebecca

European Wilderness Volunteer



Hello, and welcome to a wild blog.

I’m writing from Tamsweg, Austria where for the next 12 months I’ll be volunteering with the European Wilderness Society. I write content for the website and for publications, but this blog is a little corner of the internet to document the more personal aspects of volunteering life. Here you’ll read about my adventures in the mountains alongside office work and trips further afield.

I hope you’ll join me on my journey… let’s get wild!

And a little extra note…


I’m funded by the European Voluntary Service, through Erasmus+. If anything I say or do inspires you, they have projects all across Europe and I really encourage anyone aged between 18-30 to consider applying. Magic happens when you step out your comfort zone.
