As many of you know, Btina and myself decided we wanted a change in our life. We left Switzerland and started our exploration of the South American continent, slow traveling with Paraguay in August 2014.
Our goal was and still is to find a piece of land of our own to start our own self-sufficient, cooperative / eco farm / hostel and co-working / co-living space / nature reserve / eco-tourism / reforestation build with the aid of the brilliant permaculture principles. We plan to build natural buildings with adobe, bamboo or whatever makes sense depending where we finally settle. We plan to work with locals as well as volunteers to build all of those future projects.

The more I see and learn the more it keeps on impressing me. Somehow it seems similar like the magical Moringa tree with all those healthy features. Nature keeps on amazing me – every day.
