Julia is a German expat who moved to Portugal when she was 19 years old. She has been living there ever since and has created a homestead in Southern Portugal that helps to feed her family. In addition to this, Julia has also been involved in the local Bitcoin meetup and has been passionate about the potential of cryptocurrency.
Julia joined me from her home in Southern Portugal to chat about her homestead, local community and Bitcoin. We talked about her backstory and how she ended up in Portugal, the growth of the Bitcoin meetup in her local community and what it takes to operate a homestead that feeds her family.
Julia talked about how she first set foot on Portuguese terrain when she was 19, and found an opportunity to work there for three months. However, she ended up staying when she was offered a full-time job. Her parents also decided to move over with her brothers shortly after her. She has been back to Germany a few times to visit some family, but her close family is now in Portugal.
We also discussed the local community and meetups that she has been involved in. Julia said that the Bitcoin meetup has been growing over the years and is now quite popular. She has been passionate about the potential of cryptocurrency and believes that it can be a powerful tool for individuals to gain financial freedom. She also shared her thoughts on how the homesteading lifestyle has many similarities to Bitcoin in terms of the high upfront investment and low time preference.
Julia has also been encouraging more people to get involved in the local community and to start their own homesteads. She believes that it is important for people to have an understanding of where their food is coming from and the importance of sustainability. Through her conversations with other homesteaders, she has been able to learn more about the different methods and techniques that can be used to help create a sustainable and eco-friendly environment.
Overall, it was a great conversation and I was inspired by Julia’s passion for both Bitcoin and homesteading. She is an inspiration to many and her story shows how anyone can achieve their dreams if they put in the hard work and dedication.
