10 December 2014. Molliets et Maa, France.We have been living in Portugal for three months, made friends, explored the countryside - and almost found a piece of land suitable for our purposes. We decided to travel to the Netherlands for Christmas, and return to Portugal early next year.

5 August, 2014. Udenhout, Netherlands.We have enjoyed our stay at the edge of a quiet national park in the south of the Low Countries - but (how often did we use this cliché?) it is time to move on. We will be in Lisbon next week, couchsurf, enjoy the city, and travel north to the Serra da Estrela region.
16. June 2014. Udenhout, Netherlands.We are finally preparing to live in a little house, somewhere in the green hills of Serra da Estrela, central Portugal - for a while. It seems to us that this is the right moment to do it. We will work on our writing and see to it that Miru is surrounded by the magic of the southern European countryside. Feel free to contact us if you are in the region.
20 April. Vila Flor, Portugal / Seoul, KoreaWe are still looking for a place to live in Spain or Portugal. While Yeon is currently visiting her family in South Korea, Kamiel is hitch-hiking in Portugal after a short stay with a wonderfully excentring philosopher in Ledesma near Salamanca, enjoying walks through its magical surroundings. He will visit ecovillages and communities in Portugal, before traveling north to Paris to attend the conference Ouisharefest on May 5-7th.
15. March, 2014, Madrid, Spain.
22 December. Udenhout, Netherlands.
2. October 2013. Berlin, Germany.couchsurfing. The preparations for our transition village in Spain are going well. We are organizing through a Facebook Group. To those who are curious about this - don't hesitate to write us. We want to create a large group of a few hundred people, and then organically evolve into a dozen wonderful village groups. Here is a German documentary about the transition movement in Spain (from minute 15 in the video).
August 17, 2013. Berlin, Germany.
June 6. Kuala Lumpur/Seoul, Malaysia/South Korea.What are the initiators of CT doing? Tomorrow, Yeon will be giving a talk at a University in Seoul about Charity Travel, while Kamiel is in Malaysia to travel, meet old friends, make new ones, and get in touch with sustainable living initiatives in the region. They will reunite mid July in Germany.
May 6th. Chungju, South Korea.Our daughter Miru is now 4 months old and a wonderful baby. Having the responsibility of an infant changes priorities, and in this month's post Kamiel sketches, with some revolutionary fervor, what we envision for the future: A modest piece of rural land to live responsibly, invite our fellow idealist travelers, and create a base to return to.
