About Me


on the road to Asia


Last four years I have been living off-grid in Estonian woods, hand-sculpting a straw-bale/cob house, opening up a eco hostel & retreat. Living more than a year without electricity, running water and such, having many volunteer to come and help with the projekt - Projekt Kodu. My mission has been growing food and foraging and love it, this is still one of my passions. Somewhere along the forest road, I found myself organizing and running permaculture and how to build your own PV-panel workshops, running pop-up restorant days..Time to get some air and hit the road is the now!


dream...because dreams actually come true
