Riki Buckingham is a man of many interests, hobbies and passions.
He started traveling a few years ago with his partner at the time Kathrin Atkinson, after nearly dying in Peru at an Ayahushca ceremony (Its true!) we came back to Europe and begun traveling with big bags and lots of weight, living in a tent every night which soon became a way of life and every year we wanted to get away when we could feel the winter chill coming on.
I would say that there was a definet reason for getting out into the wild rather than it being just running away, on a spiritual level the energy and inspiration of nature would remind and connect us again to what truly matters and rekindle the connection to our soul. This to us was a healthy way of living far removed from the mundane and stagnant energy of modern living!
so we started our wild camping travels around England
Wild camping around Cornwall, UK September 2014
Southampton, Hastings, Cheltenham UK Test Run July 2015
The folowing photos are from when we met will from York, England. I began to busk at this time in Girona 2015 and it was going fairly well for a begginer!
I think it was around this time we had gotten fed up of getting bitten in the day and at night in our tent, we decided to make for north west spain!
2015, Spain, Mino & A Coruna
We then got suckered in to getting a van, it was a great van! we put HOURS of work into it! definetly worth checking the writeup if you are wanting to convert a van
On crete we did some amazing healing work on one of the nights which will stay with me forever!
My phone got water damage in the Azores so we lost lots of photo’s!
In 2018 we settled in a static caravan in Dorset in order to put plans together and for me to record an album! looking back im not sure if this was the best idea as we got caught in England and with debts to pay!
In 2019 our relationship ended abruptly and we went our seperate ways, I decided that instead of let the eleven year relationships ending break me that I would get out there and start busking on the streets and travel in my tent solo!
