My ideal or Utopia is a place where I can be connected to nature, be in a community, work together to make the lives of everyone better and ideally surf everyday. I’ve found something similar in Schloss Tempelhof. I want to see for myself, how people consciously choose to live, how they are organised, what hurdles they face.
