Some time ago I spent a weekend at my brother's countryside house. He's living where my grandparents used to have the animals and a small house with a little swimming pool (all built by my granduncle). It's located in a quiet place where there are not motorways, just ground roads. It's relative near from the city, but far enough for being in complete silence at night. Just with the crickets song, if you like it as I do you'd love it as I do.
He's really skillful, so he built many things to make the place more comfortable and useful as well as safe for their son. Little by little he has been growing up a vegetable garden, which has been getting bigger lately. I love the fact I can pick my dessert up from the bush. And, as he has got some chickens he's growing some corn to feed them.
