For those who would like to do their own thing, the project has 2 further pieces of land, not close to those described above, but approx 250 km away, up in the north-west of Bulgaria, on the south bank of the River Danube, about 8 km west of the town of Lom in the region of Montana.
Maps to follow soon.

Clearly, so far away from headquarters, an outpost there would only receive occasional visits from the management.

About 15 minutes walk from each other, the plots are:

- 23 dka (2,3 ha / 5,75 acres) good agricultural land, recently cultivated, currently mainly grass, with a section, c 3 dka (0,3 ha / 0,75 acre) of young fruit trees: apricot and peach. The plot slopes gently towards the north so there are extensive views of the Danube which is less than 200 m away, and beyond to Romania.
You can comfortably walk down to the river in 10 minutes, and the land between this plot and the river belongs to the local municipality, so expect no development there,

- 28 dka (2,8 ha / 7 acres) oak forest with walnuts, less than 100 m from the river, there is one open space in this of 4 dka (0,4 ha / 1 acre) where you could set up your camp.

Both these plots are between the asphalt road and the river, so very quiet, and you do not have to cross any roads to get from one plot to the other, or from either plot to the river.

There are currently no buildings nor any water on these 2 plots.
There is a powerful roadside spring a few km away, this could easily be reached by donkey and cart, or mountain bike and trailer.

Those interested could live in the forest in whatever type of dwelling they prefer, and work the land close by - walk to work in 15 minutes and after work go fishing or swimming in the Danube.
It should be easy to make a good living from such a large plot of fertile land. There will be one condition, though: that any colony there is called Danubia - partly after the Danube, and partly after your manager who is Danish.

Exchanges or rotations could be made between base camp and this outpost, so those interested could live in one environment one season or year, and then move to the other, and then maybe back again - there are many possibilities.
