    Hi beautiful people from everywhere.. :)

    UPDATE:
    WE ARE LEAVING FOR 7 MONTHS, END OF SEPTEMBER, AND THINKING IF WE SHOULD CLOSE OUR HOUSE OR LET SOMEONE EXPERIENCE LIFE IN AUTUM/WINTER HERE..
    THERE IS NOTHING TO DO, JUST BE..
    IF SOMEONE IS LOOKING FOR THIS LONG TERM STAYING, LET ME KNOW..
    HUGS!

    We are looking forward to meet you, and if is meant to be, get a deeper conection with you, and last.. some help :)

    We are some souls, Andra 31 years old from Romania,Richard 41 from Austria, our given children Leire 3 and Ara 1, and Skye, a dog, Schopenhauer,Sisi and Tigruța, the cats, Hades a rooster, Hera and Petra two chicks who are in the mood to have babies..

    We think we found a place like heaven on earth, and we are new to everything..

    We got books about permaculture forest gardening, about trees and flowers and plants, about self suficiency..

    We live.
    We learn.

    We are in a house, veery up on the Apuseni mountains, in the Metaliferi part more exactly.
    While im writeing this birds are singing, what a music!!!

    Life here is beautiful. Free of the city routine,you firget about wich day is literally; we lived in Viena,Austria till we came here volunteers for two beautiful human beeings, Iris and David, that live a bit more down than us..
    And we found a house for us, and there are a few more houses in the area,i think to restore and get back to life :) And much more on the hills around..

    There is a lot to do, but we are not in a hurry. We learn to live and just see life unfolding in a physical and SPIRITUAL way :) (what about our soul, what is more important in life, what is WORTH TO LIVE FOR, just questions i always had in my mind)


    Skills are welcome but not a must, we are creating a forest garden, we need to clear land around, and we have a lot of art ideas for the house and more to do..

    If you come, you could sleep in a tent,or in a hundreds years old house..

    Toilet is out,we still use the old toilet this people had, but words are not enough to say how nice is to go to toilet and look the nature!
    We plan to do inside bath room and compost toilet.

    But this are future dreams, with two small kids, im happy if i get to keep the kitchen clean and us feeded :))


    We enjoy food experiments.. And im discovering wild edibles, that make you feel wild man :))

    But you will be given the food you want for some hours of help. Or you can get yourself the food you prefer..

    We go shopping to the city still for some food, we are sourounded by Orastie and Deva, cities with a lot of history and traces of Dacian times..

    I send you, whoever reads this an invisible hug..

    A thank you and a "you are welcome" here to live your own thing, while giving a hand of help..
