Instincto vacation at Iguana's
« on: April 19, 2016, 06:28:32 am »
So I'm back from a two week vacation at Iguana's place in Portugal  :)

I arrived on the 26th of March in the South of Portugal. François was there to meet me at the bus stop, with crates full of ripe mangoes and local cherimoyas. We drove to his place in the country side, and I had my first instincto meal. These two weeks we ate cherimoyas (which I was really into), mangoes, oranges, medlars, yacon, fish, dry-aged boar meat and marrow, physalis and green peas from the garden, eggs from the hens...The food tasted great, everything was fresh, ripe.

The weather was great (at least for a Belgian dude ;) ), minus a few windy days. People back home say I got a great tan, so that's that 8) François and I drove a couple of time to the sea. We foraged a few shells and seaweed on the rocks, sunbathed, and I went for short swims in the Atlantic a couple of times (not so warm at 60°F). The rest of the time I helped a bunch of instinctos who live nearby plant some fruit trees in François' property. They want to turn François' terrain into a tropical forest full of avocado trees, figs, grapes, peas and a whole bunch of edibles.
Portugal's soil is particularly rich compared to other European countries, because the locals have been using less chemicals. According to the instinctos, the food and fruits that grows here taste better thanks to that. Also, the good thing about this part of Portugal is that the countryside is very wild, and has very few mono-crops, so very low pollution and a prettier view IMO.

Thanks François for letting me stay at your place, and showing me the Raw-Paleo/instincto lifestyle hands-on!

You're welcome! It was great to meet you and have you here helping to plant trees on my land.  :)

I must find a source of cherimoyas/yacon and other exotic fruits here in Vienna. And I miss the wonderful rotting medlars I used to get in the UK. Anyway, sounds idyllic, you are both very fortunate.
