  • Beschreibung



    I live in the mountains on my own, quite isolated in a very tranquil area surrounded by forest and a small river, the land has some fields where we grow vegetables for our own needs. There are two cats and two mules, they are the fellows I live with.


    My main porpouse is to tend to self-sustained way of liveing, growing organic almost everything I eat and try to do as much products as possible depending less and less from the supermarket. It must be said that I am on the way to self-sufiscientness, so slowely slowely I try it every day.
    As we are quite isolated we could say that we live off grid, however I still have internet connecting the phone on a computer which helps me to be one step more entangled


    There are two main purpose. The first of all is because I have so many things to do here (specially building a house), and would be nice some help, jejejeje
    The second and and not less important is because i would like people to know different ways of living in this world. I think we should live in a more sustainable and simple way. So if just some people get a bit inspired to live in the nature and with the nature, I will feel satisfied enough!!


    Just in the case, if you interest some information about me I was born in 1985 (currently 38 years old), interested in many things, among them I mostly like meditation, buddhism, simplicity and new ways of living and doing, self-sufficiency, growing and making things on my own, low ecologycal impact, come back to the origin, and the Art of living (which I do my best to improve it day by day).
    I love to learn and teach, share with people and enjoy nice talks.
    Playing board games are a big hobby as well.

    You are very welcome to come and see and let hope we have a nice meeting.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    The benfits of a cultural exchange depend on the background and interests of each individual, the same goes for what they can learn. But I tell you that if you have interest on seeing ways of liveing and learning how to build and managing a countryside/farm house here you have the chance to see and learn many things.

  • Arbeit


    Well, as I live in the mountain and i am making my own wood house, i need people who want to help me in many tasks, mostly on buliding the house dealing with cement, sand, heavy and dusty things, however there is also a garden to be watered and to take care of. Many things actually.
    Basically as a primary thing construction tasks (making concret, putting beams, builder work) plus some farm tasks , dealing with soil, plants and animals.


    Some cement and brigs construction work plus some things to be made in the vegetable garden and making a pond to collect water.

  • Unterkunft


    I live in a small part of the house, where there are two rooms of 20 square meters one on top of the other. So the first floor is the kitchen, and the second floor is my bedroom. You can sleep on my bedroom on mattress on the floor, or if you prefer some more privacy we can put a mattress in the kitchen, the kitchen though is a shared area so if anyone wakes up earlyer than you or goes to bed later than you it might be a bit disturbing. There is another option I have a big old camping tent, where there is enough space to put a double bed or three beds, plus a small table and some chairs and one can even stand without problem.

    Concerning the food, I almost don't eat meat nor fish, only if someone gives it to me.
    My meals are very simple based on rise, pasta, legums, eggs and vegetables from my garden and also some fruit (less often in summer as I dont have fridge), I live very simple and so I eat. I use to eat oats for breakfast and two meals more per day. I will provide with everything I eat, dont worry you will not suffer from hunger at all, but do not expect a lot of diversity nor any fancy food, not even cheese, creams, etc (basically anything that comes inside of a plastic container you will mostly not find it here). However in case you want something that I have not, you are welcome to bring anything you want for your own wish, no problem.

    I don't drink alcohol no problem if you make use of it with moderation, of course. I don't smoke, you can smoke outside not inside. If you smoke joints or use any other kind of drugs please better you leave them somewhere else before to come here and DON'T MAKE ANY USE OF IT WHILE YOU STAY HERE, thank youuuu.

    Was noch ...

    Well you can do whatever you want in your time of course, but we are bit far from "social activity". the house is few km far from the village, very small town 250 people, and 13km more from the next two cities (Banyoles and Olot) where you could find some activities. Without vehicle the option is to take a bus which work on demand, also there is always people coming and going from the small town to the cities, and we would find the way to move around, talking with friends, etc...

    BEFORE DECIDING TO COME TO HELP ON THIS PROJECT MAKE SURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL BE QUITE ISOLATED FOR LONG TIME AS YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE THE MEANS TO MOVE FREELY. IF YOU ARE NOT READY FOR THAT PLEASE RECONSIDER TO SEND A REQUEST, and if you do, make sure to write together with your first request which is your best breakfast meal, like this I know you have read this important part, thanks.
