Last year we bought a rustic traditional farmhouse in Galicia, Spain. It is a time capsule. Energy is flowing back in and everything is coming back to live. We are perusing a blend of the time tested goodness with modern (eco) insights & technology.
We are located smack in the middle of vibrant nature that provides for awe inspiring walks. Located 30min from one of the most famous surf beaches in Europe: Pantin. it is a place on earth where you feel that the rain washes your worries away. 15minutes later life smiles on you with endless rainbows followed by a basking sun. Patiently it keeps on repeating this until you finally take notice ...and opens a new door in your heart.
About us: We strive to inspire each other each day with love, kindness and enjoying life. Taking in all impressions that life provides and thinking outside the box defines who we are. Beyond all gender roles. Gender fluid and clothing optional. We live with the principles of Jainism as our guide. Come celebrate life with us. Lets shed the gloom. Lets already enjoy some Moksha!
Due to our lifestyle it is not possible to say where we are and what we are doing more than 2 weeks out. Please take that into account when you look at our calendar or making travel arrangements. We can only commit for 100% for the next 14 days.

North of Santiago de Compostella, nature in Galicia Coruña is breathtaking (see www. turismo.gal or googlemaps), local ppl are really nice. It is all spacious and laid back. Beaches are jaw dropping to the point that you go: "Hey, Ultimate Creator, now you are really a show-off!!!"
Weather in Galicia can be compared to this wonderful phrase I heard about the weather in Ireland . "What, dont like the weather? Just wait 15minutes! (It cycles through rain, heat, sun, hail,etc all in 1 hour)". Truth is: rain has something divine here.
Please know we can hire local hands to help us our project. These people are really really nice and are very affordable. So why Workaway help? In the end local help needs to bring food on the table and provide money for their families. With all the love they bring, they need to keep the focus on the money. Workaway turns this around for workers and hosts. Were the work can be done with all the love and the best of Chi.
(TLDR: Dont come if you need a room and are willing to do some chores in exchange)

Shared vegetarian meals. Own produce were possible.
Depending on the weather the options increase. From (bad weather) shared indoor space to (good weather) outdoor barn, tent, hammock, starry-starry-night-sky. We have ample space when you come with a caravan or camper.
Electricity from the sun, water from our deep well, cooking/heating wood from our trees, plumbing (bathroom) is the outdoors. (Outdoor plumbing was even the norm in this part of Spain until the '80!! After one year we can say -to our surprise-: indoor plumbing is overrated.). Still coming in from the outside: ADSL Internet, 4G, ...laws & taxes.
Comfort foods and drinks: Coffee, tea, chips, chocolate, cake.... ready for your to take.
A train station is located 300m from our farmhouse. It is one of those cute trains that stops at every station and cuts straight through the local nature giving you a front row seat to amazing views.
Enough mosquitoes, flies & ticks ready to bother you when there is sun. To compensate for this there is rain. Which can hold on for days. No mosquitoes, flies & ticks at that time. In other words: It is always paradise.
At times we have horses on our grounds
We have high quality (unmetered ADSL) internet for work and research.
