Who doesn’t know a kid that dreams high?
Well I was that kid!! I dreamt of becoming a civil engineer, have a farmhouse, horses, a pool and a family with adopted kids.
I grew up and the dream fell into oblivion; society did its best to get me out of my path doubting about such future, away from building education. I then changed my life and the dream awoke!! I start to travel and my hopes reborn, I grew independent and more confident, assured about myself and what I really want, facing the challenges of nomadic life seeking for answers within and without. One by one the answers came (and still come), in a wide variety of forms with deep intense lessons for life.
I then rediscover the passion for building houses and again I dream of having a farmhouse, with horses and a family; this time not to become a civil engineer but a Natural Builder!!
This fund-raising aims to help me paying my studies, plus living costs, flight ticket and visa:
- 5000€ the course
- 700€ (at least) for flying ticket
- 160€ for visa
- Living costs for 6 months in USA
as well to spread not only the SIMPLE building process, but as well the living concept of Natural Building. Therefore, I bumped into a technique called: SuperAdobe or EarthBags!
Bellow you have FREE information about how it works and how you can Do It Yourself:
That's when CalEarth comes on the way. What it seems to be the ground to develop such learning among like minded people charged with practical knowledge. On their website you will find all information about the course I want to study (Long Term Apprenticeship) and its costs: www.calearth.org
I don't intend to stop moving, to stop travelling, BUT YES at the same time to develop a Tool to bring the change to others, like me, who seek for answers and cant find them! I hope to volunteer, help refugees, provide shelters, teach, inspire, give workshops, build my own house and Promote Community Living in a world where we grow more apart from each other, ourselves and Nature.
In the progress of my donations I will update you with pictures and some of my travelling stories and my learnings. How easy is to travel spending less and still get richer, how I got in “prison” in Iran, how did I got lost with -30° in the forests of Sweden, how I hitched from Europe to India in 1 year, how I slept in a 4* hotel for free, even how I end up in Father Ted house (one of the most famous sitcom shows in Ireland); how is the life of truck driver, a drug dealer, a fisherman, the reality of the people who work in construction sites. What is Love and what is Happiness!!
