In spring 2015, I ventured to Matavenero, a remote eco-village high up in the isolated mountainous region of North West Spain. The village was populated in 1989 by an international mix of strong, independently-minded people who wanted to live simply in harmony with nature. During my stay, I immersed in their lifestyle and getting to know them on a daily basis turned into a genuine coexistence, which allowed me to make a series of people whom I could call friends.

I couchsurfed and hitchhiked my way across the islands, finding doors opening to me everywhere I went.
