Vamvakou and the Revival project constitute a once-in-a-lifetime experience, beyond the ordinary. Just think how often you get the chance to start from the beginning; to build a new homeland with your bare hands.
The countryside has its own culture. It is arid land, unspoiled ground which offers the chance for unprecedented productivity that the city deprives you of. Stress, pollution, intense rhythm, competitive environment, long distances, unemployment, impersonal relationships on the one hand; on the other hand, tranquility, smooth daily life, no distances to cross, nature, quality working conditions, opportunities for creativity, meaningful communication, human standards of living.
You might feel unsettled, that you are starting from zero and that it will be impossible to get used to a new lifestyle. Still, even this period of adaptation has a wild beauty.
The only sure thing is that you will find out things about yourself that you have never imagined of. You will grow within a different reality, expand your horizons, test your limits, mature and, then, you will be ready – relieved from the burdens of urban hubs – to view life through a different perspective and spread your wings, away from your comfort zone.
