  • Description

    Description

    We are a young couple from Croatia (Maja is 34 and Goran is 36), living in a small village in the northeast of the country (Istrian peninsula). We've been traveling around the world for the last 10 years and have so far visited different countries in Europe, Asia and South America. We are both travel writers and have published a couple of travelogues. Maja is a poet, with 4 books of traveling poetry published so far, while Goran is primarily a walker - he published a book on his 3300 kms long journey on foot from Jordan to Croatia.

    This summer, however, we've decided to stay at home and welcome travelers who are willing to help us in making a longtime dream come true…

    We want to open a small eco/robinson camp in the almond garden behind our house. With time, the camp would also be used as an artists' residence. The camp would be small, with a maximum of 10 pitches for the beginning and it would focus on cyclists, walkers and backpackers (not auto camp with trailers or cars).

    We would like to welcome a male person or a couple. Since we live in the village that is 7 kms away from the closest town, we thought it would be a good idea to welcome a couple who can really enjoy their free and quiet time in this village. We don’t have a TV, but we have internet and a lot of books. There are many trails and forest paths to walk around, and the beach is 1,5 kms away. At your disposal you would also have 2 bicycles.

    We offer a private room in our shared house. We'd be sharing a kitchen, living room and bathroom facilities.
    We offer accommodation and food (breakfast + one additional meal, lunch or dinner, depending on your preferences). We mostly eat healthy food from our village – most of the villagers are our family so we share whatever we grow here: fruits, vegetables, eggs etc. Goran is a vegetarian, so if you are a vegetarian as well, it is no problem whatsoever, since we mostly prepare vegetarian food. It is no problem if you are a vegan either. Maja is not a vegetarian so if your wish is to prepare meat from time to time, feel free to do it.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Maja is a freelance writer and a literary translator so she mostly works from home. If you also work from home we can arrange a small home office for you! We love to read and listen to the music so we might say that the general atmosphere is artistic and relaxed. If you do yoga or jogging, we can do it together, there are many forest trails for runners around.

    We are now in the process of initial preparations. We have cleaned the forest and the bushes around the area, and flattened the ground for the camp. Now we’d like to continue with preparing the pitches, constructing small wooden sheds, compost toilets, rain water tanks, tents, garden decorations... The camp would also be an artists’ residence one day so all of your creative ideas are most welcome!! Within the garden there is a small olive yard so we would need to cut these olives as well (part of spring care for the olives). We’d also like to make a little vegetable garden for ourselves, the workawayers and the guest so we'd also be planting vegetables and taking care of them (watering, weeding)… Both the garden and the camp are based on permaculture design.

    Both men and women can work in the garden since there are a lot of nice things to be done out in the open air this time of the year… In case of a couple coming together, the girl would also spend some time working in the house and helping Maja out. Some things that need to be done around the house: paint the room (2 rooms need to be painted), washing windows, general house cleaning, decorating the little garden in front of the house, taking care of house plants…

    We would appreciate if you could help us out by working 5 hours a day, 5 days a week (2 days off, whichever days you like). The best option would be if you could stay with us for about 2 weeks in total, but this is not a strict timeline, it can be further prolonged or shortened, as you wish.
