In January 2020 after 16 years of living in the UK, I moved back to Hungary with two cats . I was longing after a garden and a more natural peaceful living. So I left the rat race and started a brand new chapter of my life in a picturesque village in the heart of Cserehat.
I live in a dead end village in a valley with a small dog and three cats. The village has 19 houses but only two are occupied full time. It is very peaceful and quiet, a perfect location for someone who likes nature, fresh air and bird songs :) . The nearest town where I mostly go shopping is Encs (20km). And the nearest big city is Miskolc, about an hour drive away.
I live in an old traditional rammed earth house, of which I am renovating by replastering with cob. Also planning to build a little cob house this summer, because this is what I want to teach people how to do themselves. I would like to show them that it is do-able and not as difficult as it sounds so they wouldn't have to pay years of mortgage, live in an unhealthy environment etc. Moreover, I would like them to pass on the knowledge of natural building techniques to the next generation. This is the main plan but I have mooore :) I would like to : build an online community, write a book on how to build a cob house in Hungarian, build a pizza oven, an outside shower, (I built a composting toilet this winter) I would like to organise courses to teach how to build a round hut for chicken, a pizza oven and basic plastering and willow weaving skills. Therefore, I need all sort of help with many skills for ongoing projects, which all based on natural, environmentally friendly approach.. I also have a huge vegetable and flower garden to work on and maintain. So this is it. I'm going with the flow and have faith that the universe will provide me with everything I need.
Sleeping is either in the house or in tents. Note that the house has an open plan, there are no separate bedrooms and the animals are sleeping in the house. I have a new bathroom, a functional kitchen, and an outside composting toilet. Internet. Washing machine.
Mainly vegetarian. We will manage from the garden and together.
