I'm Eray.. I'm living with my partner Federica and our newborn baby Doğan Ateş, in a 1 hectare fruit garden, two km. away from the closest village on Ida Mountains (Kaz Dağları).. We're basicly living a very simple rural life but still we need help with several aspects of life.. Workawayers, volunteers and travellers are more than welcome to join us..
Baby-sitting / garde d’enfant
Entretien / Bricolage
Cuisine / courses
We're living at the piedmont of Ida mountains, two km. away from a village where locals provide most of their needs from this mighty mountain.. This is one thing I learned and still learning since I moved here 4 years ago..
Not only the local villagers, there are also many ''newvillagers'' like us in our area in the last 10-15 years.. Many people from different ages between 20-65 who can speak enough English to share their stories..
Me and Federica are living our lives with Rainbow culture for the last few years which is basicly about love and peace and music.. So be prepared for fullmoon gatherings around the bonfire, nights full of circles and music, lots of hugs and love..
Earthbag house building.. The biggest thing going on this year is the construction of our new house.. I started the job in the middle of March and depending on the help I may recieve, this construction will continue until the end of summer..
Besides that our farming life will go on and we'll need help for harvesting cherries and apples, processing apples for producing vinegar..
English, Turkish, Italian, Spanish
For now I can only provide the teepee (Indian American tent in the pictures) for workawayers.. Or if you prefer you can bring your own tent..
People who join us can use this teepee for sleeping.. And once we finish building the earthbag house and move in, workawayers will be able to stay in our 15 m2 wooden hut where we're living for the last four years..
There's a toilet and shower in our hut which we'll share with our guests.. Also we have a dry compost toilet close to the teepee.. Getting clean in the river just next to our land is the best option during the summer though..
When we connect, we prefer to consider the people we live together as our family..
So we decide with consensus.. We cook together, we eat together..
Of course we're not gonna be working everyday.. We're hippies after all!!.. During the summer we'll often visit the waterfalls on the mountain.. Seaside is not that far also.. We might escape for a couple of days of camping..
Besides these options if the workawayer wants to hang out alone I can help with info about several nice places around us and in Turkey as I travelled most of the country by bicycle..
