Hey Esmee,

My wife and I are both from The Netherlands and just returned after living in Thailand for nearly a decade.

Although we had a great time there we felt enough was enough and we wanted to move closer to family and live in a place without visa issues and other bs. Especially since we have kids this felt like a good idea.

We are now preparing to scout Portugal and Spain with a camper van and are set to leave in about 6 weeks.

Drop me a line if you are interested in sparring some ideas. It seems like we are on the same page.

We also have a blog and youtube chanel called "Healthy Roots and Strong Wings"
To document our adventures and entertain friends and family

Greetings,

Ties

At the moment I am at the panyaproject.org and over here we often use a low quality type of lime to make plaster. My natural building teacher/guru Lola Byron aka "the queen of cob" always told me: "mix the dry stuff first"

Quess otherwise you might risk getting lumps of one type or the otheror the mix not becoming completely consistent I guess. Must say that we mix everything by hand and don't have cement mixers or the like

I'm no expert but I am learned that is is always good to mix the dry stuff first before adding water. Sounds like a sound plan

Hey Permies,

My family and I have the plan to explore Portugal and Spain in a campervan to try and volunteer/intern/wooff in interesting permaculture projects, eco villages, communities organic farms and the like. Besides getting new experiences and adventures we also want to scout these countries to eventually settle somewhere.

We realise this will be quite a mission as we have 2 young kids but we don't want to let our kids be a reason not to follow our dreams. Are there any people with experience in doing these kinds of things with kids? Do you know cool projects or farms where kids are welcome or have any other awesome ideas we haven't thought of yet?

At the moment we are just in the orientating phase of our plan so we won't be driving of into the sunset just yet

Thanks for any input,

Ties
