    You could learn part of the local history, the way of life, and few traditions of the area .Meet artists that travel and exchange ideas and knowledge on diferent subjects.Socializing in the group of volunteers or with visitors if you prefer and having a good time,it is a way to get to know stories and exchange valuable information about traveling,traditions etc.Our ambition is to make the place self sufficient so getting to know how and participating in the process is beneficial aswell.
