    Description

    Hello we are Mieszko and Tiffany, we live together with our Dog Soki on the countryside of Albinyana in a small house with 5 ha land. 3 ha of this land are forest, with a lot of rosemary and thyme. There are also olive trees, nut trees, cherry trees, almond trees, carob trees and grapes.

    We still need one responsible and trustful person who stays at our place to take care of our dog and the land from the 28 of August until the beginning of October. The main work will be to walk 3 times a day with Soki, feed him and fill up his water. There will be also some other small work to do the time of your stay.

    We will be already travelling when you arrive but there will be people the first week to show you how all works :)

    We share our place with Nico, a friend of us from Argentina who works in the village. He is really friendly, loves to laugh, juggle and plays music. Nico works a lot so you will see him just at some moments of the day :)

    Albinyana is 10 kms from El Vendrell, this is the nearest town with a Train station. From Albinyana there goes a bus about 3 times a day if you feel like sometimes to move. Our place is just 2 kms by foot from the village.

    We live very minimalistic, this means that there is a compost toilette and a self-built shower outside the house.
    At the house, we have electricity from a solar panel.
    There is no water connection, so we pick up drinking water in the village every two weeks.
    We also collect rainwater in tanks and we take care to not waste it, it means that we don't take shower everyday and we are careful and conscious every time we use it.

    Most of all the things we build are built with recycling and secondhand materials, we do all by hand with manual tools.
    After seeing how much food is wasted and thrown away in our society, while 820 million of Human beings are suffering from hunger, we decided to buy as less food as possible and recycling vegetables and fruits from the market and supermarket around our village. 85% of the food we eat is recycled, still good and not even out off date but thrown away because of weird european standards. We would show you the places where we get the food.

    We are vegan, so it means that we don't buy and cook any animal products (meat, fish, milk, eggs, honey...). For us, every life is important so we do our best to not hurt or kill any animals.
    Our place is a drug free place, this means that nobody can consume any kinds of drugs at the place (that involves alcohol and tobacco).

    We live a very simple Life in Nature.

    The time you are at the place you will have your own room in the house for sleeping and you will share the kitchen and the living room with our friend Nico. We also let you bikes that you can use to move around.

    For us art, creativity and to have fun is very important. We have some instruments. We take the time to make music or play games together.

    Mieszko plays Didgeridoo and builds them. If somebody wants to learn how to play this beautiful instrument, I love to share my knowledge. I also juggle since 11 years. So I can teach you juggling if you like.
    Tiffany plays handpan, loves to create small things, cooking and spirituality.
    Mieszko is from Germany and Tiffany from France, at home we always speak English.

    If you are interested in what we propose you, put the word "flamingo" in your message, for us to know if you read until here before writing us :)

    If you feel like to be surrounded by Nature, you will feel very good at the place.

    See you soon :)

    Tiffany and Mieszko
