  • Description

    We met in 2007 on the dance floor (folk dancing). A few years later we married and bought (and refurbished) a house together (till that point, a bit standard).
    We don't have kids, we don't have a car, television or microwave. And in 2020 (returning from an eye-opening trip to Ecuador) we decided not to work full time any more in order to have time for all the important things of life.

    We have a fairly big garden which provides most of our veggies and a big portion of our fruit most of the year. Recycling and reusing items is our first choice when we (think we) need something. We set goodbye to our flush toilet and made ourselves a simple composting toilet!

    For the moment we live near a city, which is convenient, but we are more appealed to nature. We like birdwatching and long walks while enjoying nature and wildlife.
