Our trip started in 2010 when we decided to quit our jobs, home and daily life in Barcelona to travel around the world for two years. We traveled to dozens of different countries, discovering different cultures and sharing experiences with lots of people, both locals and travelers. We were eager to see the world, to get out of our comfort zone and seek new adventures. On our way back we decided to stop in the Canary islands where we opened a guesthouse and retreat center to keep travelling through people this time, constantly exchanging experiences. Now we decided to come back to Barcelona to start this new project focused in what we like most.
PHILOSOPHY OF THE PLACE
Located in the forest close to Barcelona it is an ideal spot to disconnect of your daily routine and reconnect with yourself - relaxing, enjoying nature, eating well, enjoying yourself and learning new stuff by working together with different people.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
We can't tell you what you are going to learn, but we can recommend you to read our reviews and check what others have learned while staying with us in our previous project in the Canary Islands. this is a living lab, an unlimited beta school for creative knowmads, so we are always on a "work in progress" mode, learning from each other, not only skills but the life lessons you get when you share with people from different cultures (all we are international). We also need to add what you gain when listen from within yourself when you are in a special place, with a quiet environment, into nature....and you have the chance to practice yoga, meditation, develop your own ideas, etc.
There is three main dedications if you are an artist, knowmad, creative soul:
1. To work on your talent/skill to transform it into a workshop, project or event.
2. To teamwork and contribute in other volunteer’s talent, workshop, project or event.
3. To help to run nicely the place and the community.
If you are one of our long term volunteers, you will became temporary as part of the core team, hence:
1. You will have to help to organization: front line, back-office, maintenance…
2. You will have to support some of the workshops, projects or events.
