Julia’s Journey: From Germany to Portugal and Bitcoin to Homesteading30. January 2023
• Julia is originally from Germany and moved to Portugal when she was 19.
• She has since built a homestead and started a local Bitcoin meetup.
• Julia talks about the parallels between the high upfront investment needed to understand and work on Bitcoin and homesteading, and the need for low time preference in both endeavors.
Julia grew up in Germany, but when she was 19, she decided to travel and look for work opportunities. She found a job in Portugal and ended up settling there, with her parents and brothers joining her shortly after. Julia has been back to Germany a few times to visit family, but she now considers Portugal her home.
Julia has since built a homestead and started a Bitcoin meetup in her local community. She has noticed many similarities between the work needed to understand and work on Bitcoin or a farm, such as the high upfront investment and low time preference required in both endeavors.
Julia has been able to witness the growth of the Bitcoin meetup in her local community, and the meetups have become a platform for her to share her knowledge and experience with Bitcoin. She has also been able to use the meetups to bring people together and create a local network of Bitcoin enthusiasts.
Julia has also been able to use her homestead to feed her family, and she enjoys the challenge of running a successful homestead. The work and effort needed to run a homestead is high, and it requires a great deal of patience and dedication.
Julia’s experience in Portugal has been incredibly rewarding, and she has been able to use both Bitcoin and her homestead to build a strong and supportive community. She has been able to learn and grow, while also helping others to do the same. Julia’s story is an inspiring example of how one can make a life for themselves in a new country, while also embracing new technologies and using them to make a positive impact in their community.
