House and Garden in Algarve Before and After

Imagination and sensitivity enabling to feel the genius loci of the place may get you from the non interesting looking patch of land and an small old house to creating a paradise on Earth. What does it take to get you from there to today? What has the power of igniting it? Who whispers the solutions?
Whoever and whatever it is, I love the result.

Just have a look by yourself. The old photos were taken 15 years ago. In the parallel world of yours, what were you doing at that time?

I made my homework. I remember what I was doing in 1999. Being in Warsaw, I’ve met for the first time Danuta – a friend of mine that in April invited me over there. Life is plotting it’s scenarios in surprising ways. Imagine. The awareness that at the same time somebody else 4,000 km away was making important decisions, buying the land in Algarve (Portugal), starting rebuilding and construction work, laying out a garden, so I could spend important time here, doesn’t show that there is a greater plan for us?

I read so many great things about the Algrave area. I seriously thought it might be a great place to retire to. Jack

Jack, that would be one of the best ideas ever :)

How could that happen in that short time?
