Julia is a German who moved to Southern Portugal when she was 19, and has since set down roots in the area. Through hard work and dedication, she has built a homestead that feeds her family and is a thriving part of the local community. In addition to homesteading, Julia is also part of a growing Bitcoin meetup in the area, and is passionate about both topics.

When asked about her backstory, Julia told me about her initial decision to move to Portugal. She had wanted to travel, and found a job opportunity in the area for three months. However, after the job offer was extended to a full-time position, she decided to resettle there. Her parents and brothers soon followed, and she hasn’t been back to Germany since 15 years ago.

Now that she is living in Portugal, Julia is a part of a close-knit local community. She is also part of the growing Bitcoin meetup in the area, and has found many parallels between how she talks about Bitcoin and homesteading. In her conversations, she talks about how both Bitcoin and homesteading require high upfront investment and low time preference.

Julia is passionate about both Bitcoin and homesteading, and loves the lifestyle that she has created in Southern Portugal. She is a great example of someone who has taken the plunge and moved to a new place, and found success in the process. It’s inspiring to see how Julia has built a homestead and a Bitcoin community in the same place, and it’s a testament to her hard work and dedication.
