Hi there,

I’m a 35 year-old woman. I was born and raised in France, then I lived abroad from age 20 to 32 (UK, SE Asia, Australia, USA, Canada and Ireland) and since 2015 I’ve been back in France … working 9 to 5 , paying a mortgage, etc. This is absolutely not the kind of life I want to live. My whole life I’ve had two dreams, one is finding my soulmate and marrying him and the other one is living a simple life in harmony with nature. It’s definitely time to make my dreams happen! :)

For now I’m just preparing myself, like I’m educating myself about self-sufficient living,  looking for land, etc., and I’m hoping to make a move within the next couple of years. I’m pretty flexible about location, could pretty much settle anywhere in the world but wouldn’t mind staying in France. No wilderness here but there is still some quite remote and affordable land.

Ideally I would like to do this with a partner so thought I’d reach out here. ;-) If you’re a male, 30 to 45, tall (I’m 5’11 and only interested in taller men) and on the same wavelengths as me as far as living a simple life and all, feel free to get in touch. Would love to get to know about you and see if we could click.

hi. tania, I am not your Mr right neither,  since I am married, I just want to tell you that me too just started my permaculture project in a 7 hectares property,  already build myself a dome cabin in that property, and currently building a dome home in another property, so my advice would be look for semi desertic land if you dont have already one, that way is more challenging, to turn a degraded land into a forrest,  and also cheaper to buy, hahaha,  I am just starting to rehydrate the land using a keyline design, ponds  and swales, that is the first thing to do.  once that is done. the rest should be easier,  according to sepp holzer that is the more important thing to do. (the water) second step, is to follow geoff lawton and bill morrison principles, third step is to use the fukuoka method.  to spread seeds. just like sepp holzer do  too. well. at least that is what I am trying to do. but I just started,  well , now, a little bit about me.  like you. I have been moving around  a lot. lived  in the us and canada for a few years,   also in england for  a year, now I am back in mexico and ready to settle. if you have any question, please let  me know. I speak english and spanish, and I am trying to improve my french,  so maybe we could  exchange permaculture ideas and tips. or even you could help me improve  my french hahahah.
so  salut. et au revoir.
