What can we do while we still waiting for our group members arrive? We managed the cleaning a kitchen mostly tidied up the unused fridges. Looks easy job but is not. Dirty, long time not used. We use just natural product- water, cleaning solution( alcohol, vinegar, orange and lemon peel)from Samadhi. Even we have no hot water make things more difficult.
In the kitchen we have a useless rocket stove and Maja-s rocket stove, no electricity and water. Even we have no proper walls so it is cold and windy. The original plan was make a wall from fridge and use as a storage place which we need a lot. Because rats coming in the night we have to store everything in the fridges. We have no table and chairs, have to make.
This place going to be our living room and kitchen. At the moment I feel it is so far…
We was waiting for our journey companions Ludka Mateusz and Jana
Just two days before they arrival to Dziadowo I’ve discovered water ingress in our motorhome and after stripping down the wall cover firstly I felt sad and angry because it was so close to our dream journey and the damage was quite bad. I show it to Maja and she said don’t worry is still timie to fix it I’ve started to rebuild it; that day I’ve worked all night using just simple tools like kife and scraper. The next day I was rebuilding frame and then I’ve used expanding foam to fill gaps after that with a help from Maja brother Michal we fixted nice piece of polyvinyl sheet , I was suprised how good it was looked so the days without sleep payed off and camper was ready for new inhabitants. Mateusz and his family arrived to Dziadowo quite late I think it was around 3 at morrning on 8th of March so we just unpacked their belongings from Mateusz father’s car and I gave them keys to they luxry apartment 🙂 Next day I was still doing some bits and pieces in camper with big help form our new firends. Mateusz he pulled out his equipment I was very impressed and became movie star with grinder ( movie to come out soon). In just few hours of working thogether I’ve felt well connected with him so we would have great times togehter. After 3 days in Maja home we finnaly packed oursefls and around 4pm we’ve stared our dream journey. Just after 90km we decided to do it brake and from it was almost 3 hours 😀 . the plam was to meet with Brio in Berlin and we did it just before midnight and then was trip via Germany as usualy Autobahn so easy peasy 🙂 In France i’ve decided to avoid motorways but after few km I changed my mind (U have to paid for you comfort) and we set up Our second destination AvingnonMore to come soon …..
It was a long time to wait for Maja, Ludka. Gabi, Jana, Mateusz and Michael arrive but finally they did. But soon in the next they we started to realized how many things to do as soon as possible:a lot!!! It is overwhelming: the meetings, talking, understanding how things work, prioritized thing and start a work straight . No tome for observation just lets do it. The kitchen: make a table, benches, rocket stove, make a wall, deconstructed the walls. Cooking together, get kitchen equipment, washing mashine, sheeps and guinea pig food start a vegetable garden and fix many things.. A of course make a video, picture, write down a design. And buy food, tools, make list what do we need for everythings but keep low the budget.
The feeling was shocked, confused, overwhelming and really dont know how slow down. Started from Saturday and still on it.
The weather not help-maybe the local people happy because need rain here- but for us make thing more difficult we have no close, warm place when getting cold, raining (not big one just shower). But hard the stay all the time outside especial in the evening. We manage to use a library and a caravan as well for meetings but noting else. I quite fine with this weather Rosa struggling with this. Looks continue a week so we have to be strong.
The solar shower broke down but in this cold not have hot water. Finally today we have a few hours sun and I had a nice shower!
The kitchen is a mess, tried organize our food and thing for cooking but is difficult b. the guys build there.
We are going to be fine but need time, patient, and make time for relax not stressed out. And it is not easy.
…When Jose arrived he gave us the chance to buy some products at the local market (in Italy we call it (km market) and I bought a lot of vegetables and after a while we finally arrived at our destination: the finca, the 8th life community.
I had three exceptionally vivid dreams recently. I am usually rather careful with interpreting dreams, most of them just come from my thoughts, wishes, fears, memories etc. But sometimes so it happens, that I wake up very sure that this dream was something more. Sometimes a lot more, sometimes just a little bit.
