    Short Update 19.August 2018:
    We would love to find somebody as soon as possible, someone 'strong', enthusiastic, who can help us fix up a house, somebody who doesn't mind hard work!! :)
    Hi there friends of the sun.
    if you want a shower, first you have to make a fire. possible with walnut shells.
    you will hear more donkey and horse wagons driving pass our house than cars.
    you hear summing of bees and singing of birds here, sometimes a chainsaw somewhere, but not much else. (and like in every bulgarian village there is dogs barking!!)
    we just recently bought a little house with a decent amount of land about 100km west of Varna, about 600m high, surrounded by hills.
    We include permaculture principles and ethics in our descision making process, but don't strictly follow any system.
    Danie is bulgarien, Nathalie from Germany, we speak English together.
    We have a little toddler who also enjoys gardening. Like every child he wants to explore all day long, so we are trying to help him doing this, as much as we can.
    For sure, watching the baby is a task for us, as well as for you if you feel comfortable about it. (it takes a village to raise a child ;) ) there is also two very happy and friendly dogs living with us.
    We love to live a simple lifestyle.
    Our diet is mostly plant based, but we also like cheese and milk, hopefully soon we make our own!
    There is lots of work to do in the garden, building and maintaining, but also there has to be times to explore, create and get inspired.
    Also experimenting with food, new recipies and so on is a part of our interests.
    We love to share ideas and dreams and philosophies about the world and sharing our past travel adventures. We think that not everything should be work, but if its work, its much nicer to share and be done earlier so we can sit together with a cup of tea or coffee, hang out in the hammock or make marmalade.
    ''work is love expressed.''

    There is so many secret and public beautys in the area such as Madara, some forgotten stone monasterys, lakes and of course the life of a non touristic, authentic village.
    Also the black sea is close enough for a day trip.
