I have been thinking a lot about the fire situation and your story in particular. I find it really upsetting. I Also been thinking about whether I could do it on my own i Portugal. I have already Done a project in Stockholm and I am on my third year. Renovating an old shed to a livingspace With outdoor kitschen and bathroom and Also slowly planting a foodforest. Doing that on my own has been a real test. Sometimes it feels like I have hardly done anything. But many things I have built twice or even Three Times', because I have been unhappy With the results or because better materials has been Found.
IT is just really hard to do everything on your own, even though I have friends and family close, They dont really understand what I am doing so I feel lonely. I guess IT is really important With permie neighbours at least. Or maybe IT is not worth doing on your own. ITs Nice and safe be able to make all decissions, but lonely! And more fun With other people to share with.
So anyway, I have been thinking about Portugal a lot, the fire scares me, but cant stop thinking about it anyway. I have only been to Portugal once as a child, so I guess I Will have to go check it out. I am a gardner so Work season is starting for me now, so no time to travel until november. I am probably going to india then but have some time before and after I guess if Portugal is still on My mind.
