Hello, Im bob, 35 year old - living with my donkey in the south west corner of Portugal.
I Live here with my donkey, chickens and sometimes there is a friend or two staying here as well..
We do different things, depends on the season, but its mostly working with trees, plants, earth works, terrace building and recently also different kinds of art with olive wood.
In the free time here we play music, frisbee and go to the beach which is about 20km drive from here..

Cultural exchange - could pretty much be anything.
We play alot of music, and we are people from all over the world in the area.. so if culture is your cup of tea - there is alot of it around here.
The land is located on the rota Vicentina, and inside the natural park of the costa Vicentina. Unique nature and beautiful walking tracks.
A small garden-farm project with a donkey, chickens and some natural building projects going on.
The work depends on the season - sometimes its mostly gardening and sometimes mostly building with mud.
Donkey always likes attention and care

Have two caravans on the land.. one is near the house and has its own kitchen, hanged bucket shower and dry toilet.. the other one is on a top of a hill with a beautiful sea view - but not much more for now.
There is also a mud igloo we built here last year, super cozy..
About foods- we can decide together what works best for us - as for me normally during the summer i mostly eat fruit and my big meal would be only after sunset - so maybe it dosent work the same for anybody. Im a vegetarian - and as i dont have a problem if someone chooses to eat meat- if you are into bbq-ing every other meal - maybe better find another place.
The area is amazing with loads of nice things to do - there is alot of other projects around, there is the Mira river in a walking distance, beach is about 20km away, amazing tracks in the park and the rota Vicentina, and an amazingly authentic Portuguese village with nice friendly farmers :)
