Photos by hellinger-fotografie.deHi I am Melanie (the one on the right ;-), I am the dot connector of FLOWS. I moved to Landeira at the beginning of 2016 because I feel in love with Jens (the guy next to me in the photo  ;-), the community and the valley. I felt that even so I was going to take my computer with me at least I am at a place where the life I wanted to live is possible. The beauty of the valley and the variety of skilled and lovely people in and around it amazed me and got me to work on this project and I feel very grateful for this.  I live with my partner Jens and my daughter Lisa (8) in a small house build out of what once used to be a goat stable with some extensions in wood. The closest dip into the river spot is 30 m from my bedroom door and it’s generally our private beach :-)
