  • Description


    Hans is nomadic shepherd, singer and songwriter, living an alternative life-style with his partner Mingo and their children Louis, 6, and Rosa, 4 years old. We do home-schooling in our wooden caravans and at the sheep flock, which we herd everyday to new pastures, maintaining rare biotopes with endangered species.
    We like to sing and make music together, to discuss and paint and cook collect wild veggies and herbs.
