Marek with Lojza preparing the dinner. Zlámaná, 7.11.2019. Marek and Lojza decided to leave their home cities and move to the mountains. They want to live in harmony with themselves as well as with nature. They take care of animals, old meadows and forests. It ´s some kind of way back to the "simple" life of farmers.

I live a beautiful life!

The sixth winter has passed since Marek and Lojza left their home towns. They moved to the old farm in Kysuce and decided to revive it. They began to renew the meadows, brought goats to them, repaired the house, and brought geese and chickens to the yard. They came here mainly to fulfill their ideals and their idea of a free life. In their world, respect for nature is the highest priority. They live their lives in solitude and in a very modest way, but they are neither lonely nor poor. They found happiness in the company of animals, in the silence of mountains as well as in everyday work.
