Kyle Babikian, also known as the Bridgeman, was a lifelong resident of Dublin, the vibrant capital city of Ireland. Born and raised amidst the hustle and bustle of urban life, he lived there until he turned 30. Then, in a bold move that surprised many, he decided to leave everything he knew behind to embrace a new way of life – homesteading. Kyle traded the city’s skyscrapers for the verdant green expanses of rural Ireland, a landscape that was as alien to him as it was beautiful. With no familiar faces, no personal vehicle save for a bicycle, no modern amenities like running water or electricity, and an internet connection that was at best unreliable, he ventured into this unknown territory with nothing more than the clothes on his back and €300 left in his pocket.
The journey Kyle undertook was far from easy. As he gradually worked to build his homestead from the ground up, he had to learn to survive on a shoestring budget and acquire new skills that were completely foreign to him. Despite starting out with little to no experience, he persevered, driven by an indomitable spirit and a determination to live life on his own terms. His choice to live ‘life on hard mode’, as he calls it, is not just about creating a sustainable way of life for himself but also serves as a testament to his resilience and an inspiration to others. Through his experiences, he aims to show others that if they genuinely want to transition to homesteading, there should be little to no excuses for not doing so. His story is a testament to the fact that with determination, resilience, and a bit of grit, anyone can overcome obstacles to live a life more attuned to nature.
