  2. Andalusia, land of flamenco and oranges. Along the Way of St. James close to Castilblanco de los Arroyos we happend to find a little paradise called "Los Portales".
    Meryl, who is the goatgirl, teacher, cook, gardener and budget controller on the organic farm and community, first came to the place in south-west spain when she was around 15 years old. A big change after growing up in Brussels. She tells us what it takes to join the community; about the beauty of nature and her goat-dreams.

  5. When Mats arrived in Southern Spain, he came with nothing. He build a house with everything he could find and started planting fruit trees and vegetables. He created his home on the slope of the mountain and now lives an easy life with his sixteen cats, he even got a little lawn in the shade, which he calls his priceless possession.

    And the best thing about the place; there's no rent to pay. Mats: 'Rent is one of the big evils of this world, because it forces everyone to go to work.. and for what.. Just for a space on the earth'.

In a Europe that is increasingly in the clutches of a financial crisis, where hope has given way to fear …we are looking for alternatives. Alternative ways to live, a different way of living together in tune with the environment.

Our journey will take us to various Eco-villages, Intentional Communities and other forms of mini societies.
Places that are often founded on an idealistic idea, attempting to create a form of “heaven on earth” and that sometimes function as a self-sufficient entity separate from the rest of society.

We want to find out what life is like in these places, how they are organised and what drives the people who live there. That is why we look forward to starting this journey, an exploration of new ways of life that will take us across South-West Europe in 2.5 months.

As we don’t want to keep this experience and our findings to ourselves, we intent to keep a video diary of the places we visit, which we will post on this blog (provided that we get their consent of course).
