  • Description


    Hello to you who's reading these letters!

    My name is Al and I’m pleased to meet you!

    With my family - I am living in wonderful Montenegro in a lively town called ‘Plav’. It’s located in the mountains and rests at a gorgeous lakes. Halfway, near the top of the mountain you’ll find a cute little cabin that is ours - and yours to feel home at! Here, there is no WiFi connection, -only some area in need and emergency cases - yet there is a creek and water access, pine trees and ferns, possibility to do whatever you feel called to. And that’s what we here do! I have a number of projects running and am always working and building on something new. I’m a dreamer that loves to make my dreams come true - and if you feel called, I’d love to do that with you!

    For projects, here in the mountain , think of things such as building wooden bungalows,spots to relax,fire places for camp fire,tree houses..or any of your own projects , ideas that fits with it, gardening, caring for nature, art projects, or anything you come up with. I might need a helping hand with things at the time, but if your imput resonates with me/us, you are theoretically free to do what you want. Balance in work and relaxation is important for me and I am trustful we will find our way there.
    Downtown in the village we are setting up 3 things at the same time , hihi...
    first thing is an youth Hostel
    second is Art Gallery
    Third is Info Point for the Hiking and Biking visitors

    What to expect?

    In the mountain You will be sleeping in the lodge or in a tent. Depending on your desire regarding where to put energy and time for work into, you might be willing to stay at my other piece of land that is surrounded by apple trees. Here, we are working on projects too.
    In the downtown you stay at the Hostel that we are working still on it and its lets say ready to be opened.
    You’ll have access to water, warmth, a kitchen, room to make fire in- and outside, -in the mountain only - bed in the lodge or a tent outside. We will visit town, city, lake, or elsewhere frequently if you wish so! In town, there is a good internet connection and also WiFi to find in one of the many pubs.
    There is fresh fruit and veggies in town for a very reasonable price as well as several supermarket in different price ranges.We grow our own veggies as well...

    If It is hard to reach plav through public transport. Therefore, I’ll come to pick you up in Podgorica, or Bijelo Polje where your train arrives! I’m always ready to help you with what you need, and hope to receive back that you are able to give and share with this place!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Workawayers can do/learn lets say Whatever they want!! :-) We'll be more then happy to help them to explore our culture, heritage, language and gastronomy of the area.
    Plav is located in central part of Montenegro. This side of the country is still unexplored from natural beauty and culture of this people. For the projects downtown in and around the Gallery and Hostel (wich are actually inside the same building) our goals especially for the
    Gallerie's project is bringing back the spirit of culture. Being part of this project means helping a very beautiful cross-cultural experience, which sends a message to the whole world, the world is beautiful when we look each other through the eyes of art.
    Our guests would be able to see and feel on such a small territory five different languages and unique local warm hospitality.
    A small town between the high mountains with the hearth of the lake can give you a true connection of a man and a nature where you will see the power of mountains and water around you. You would be connected with National park of Prokletije Mountains.
