Why did I set up a co working / co living space in Siwa Egypt and Blackpool UK? I get asked this question all the time. It’s a long story see my book called Somewhere Different. My family and I were wiped out by the Tsunami in Sri Lanka in 2004 and so set up Somewhere Different – somewhere different. Not in Sri Lank but in Siwa Egypt because we bought half a kilometer of lake front here before going to Sir Lanka. For ten years the Siwa Villa offered up market family tours as you can see from our Trip Advisor listing.

One revolution and divorce later we shut down. I spent several years working and traveling as a Digital Nomad until 2019 when I reopened in Egypt and bought a  Victorian Town House in Blackpool to add to the mix in the UK as it’s my home country and liked the idea of having a coworking / coliving space there too. The plan is to be open in the UK for the 2020 summer season.
