The safety is another big issue as crime rates are high. And safety is one of the major benefit of living in the countryside. Usually, rural areas are not as populated and all residents more or less know each other well. Therefore, possibility of theft or any other type of criminal act is slight. Aside from low safety risks, the quality of life is what makes countryside appeal to many. In the rural areas, skyscrapers and traffic jams are replaced with mountains, lakes, rivers, forests and other breathtaking landscapes. And without noise and daily stress, life in the countryside is more peaceful and ultimately healthier.
Curious about life in English countryside
Unlike life in countryside which is often considered to be simple and traditional, life in the city is modern and complicated. People, from different regions, move to the cities in the hope of having...
Life in countryside was better for the peasants. They had to work hard, but they generally had food and shelter. Taxes were reduced during the Han Dynasty and people who tilled the soil were often respected.We are a catalane couple who lives in the beautiful area of “The Pre-Pyrenees”, province of Lleida. We live in a quiet region surrounded by mountains.
We are in the center of Camarasa, and just 1 hour and half drive from Pyrenees, Barcelona, Tarragona and the beautiful area of the high mountains.
We like simple, quiet life in countryside, in a touristic area. We have a house and an olive trees grove.
We work as teachers but only in the afternoons. Pau is an amateur musician so he teaches traditional catalane music as well. Rosa makes a lot of traditional catalane and Mediterranean recipes. She loves cooking with whole ingredients and in a Mediterranean way. She makes jams and several types of traditional Spanish foods, and right now she can cook many recipes from over the world; many thanks to the friends of workaway for sharing your culture ! ;-).
We speak fluently Catalan and Spanish, English and a little French. We love chatting in front of a glass of wine or a cup of tea, or coffee!
If you like to play music, we play catalane instruments as “tarota” but also double bass, racorder, guitar... (Pau is the teacher and the rest of us students, but we like to play together).
At this time we are looking for a volunteer for the any period of the year to help Rosa mother with simple tasks such as general housekeeping and language practice. We have a vegetable garden and an orchard, so we need help with gardening as well, especially in winter time for picking up olives. BUT THIS YEAR WE DON'T HAVE OLIVES!
We hope meet you soon. Have a nice trip! Being born and grow up in the city, I say I prefer the city. This is where you can find almost everything. However, as I go to the university, and now living in the countryside, I found life here is not that bad as I imagined. The living expense here is low, the air is fresh, and life in countryside seems to be less busy than in the city. How about you? Do you prefer city or country?
