I am from the Netherlands, the last 19 years living in Norway. In 2015 I took my PDC at Panya in Thailand. The last 8 years I have been looking around the world to find the place where I feel better, can use permaculture and become old. Last winter I tried once more to find a place in the south of Europe and went to Crete, Greece. I immediately felt at home there and started looking around for land. But that was not easy, a lot is sold 'illegally'. In April I went again and in May I asked my lawyer to start checking everything. This process is still going on, but in July I hope to go again and put my signature under the contract. So it did not became the Caribean. In the mean time I am reading and watching everything I find to prepare myself for moving from zone 8 to zone 10B, to a dry subtropical Mediterranean climate. In Norway I have experience from apricots, grapes to cherries and plums, some permaculture, etc. Now I am looking forward to take care of the 10 olive trees and dive into figs, carob, mesquite, passion fruit, jujubi, pomegranate, mulberry, dade palm, citrus, etc. Coming winter I want to take my 2 Ginko biloba trees of 3 yr old with me, as well as my 4 yr old pink grapefruit from the Philippines grown from seed; in my backpack, on the plane, cut down, without dirt. The first two years I will only be there for 6 months each year, observing everything, planning etc. Today I started a new blog, Permaculture on Crete. http://permaculturetertsa.blogspot.com/ Here I present the land for you, 2 km from the sea, on a slope, the upper part pretty steep (10%?) and the top even steeper. On my blog I wrote some of the questions I have. I am looking forward to get input about what to do with the 'cut down' in the land.
