amory and fernando

Amory and Fernando. Before they turned 50 they decided not to wait till 65 to retire. They quit their “good jobs”, cut off all the strings holding them down, packed up everything they owned (which occurred to be 5 trucks full of stuff) and bought a piece of land on Chiloé Island. First they placed all their belongings in a big military tent, then they started to clear the land, piece by piece built up their new home. They reached the point that they were self efficient on their own land. But after 5 years they decided to do something else. They bought another piece of land and started their eco-friendly tourist site. Extremely gentle, adorable, positive persons.

If you want to spend some time close to the nature on a Chiloé Island you should contact them.

This post is a part of my miniproject “dreamers“.

  2. Hey.


    You a dreamer?


    Haven’t seen too many around lately. Things have been tough lately for dreamers. They say dreaming’s dead, that no one does it anymore. It’s not dead, it’s just been forgotten. Removed from our language. No one teaches it so no one knows it exists. The dreamer is banished to obscurity. Well I’m trying to change all that, and I hope you are too. By dreaming every day. Dreaming with our hands and dreaming with our minds. Our planet is facing the greatest problems it’s ever faced. Ever. So whatever you do, don’t be bored. This is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things are just starting.
