    Description

    Before you read more: We would prefer a female volunteer, nothing personal male. NOW I AM LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEER FROM ENDING OF NOVEMBER AND UNTIL CHRISTMAS (I AM FLEXIBLE ABOUT CHRISTMASTIME). AFTER THAT I AM FREE FROM FEBRUARY AND I AM LOOKING FOR SOMEBODY WHO CAN STAY FOR A LONGER PERIOD MIN 3 MONTHS
    We are family living centralt in Akureyri (the Capital of North). We are Ragna Valdís and my four children; Blædís Björt (2002) 15 years old, Amanda Ösp (2006) 11 years old, Sebastían Smári (2011) almost 6 years old and Jónatan Blær (2013) almost 4 years old. I (Ragna) is an occupational therapist working flexible on daytime on the hospital on Akureyri.
    We enjoy being outdoors in the nature, dancing, listening to music etc. We also like to enjoy good food together as a family.
    There's never a quiet moment around us, so if you don't like action our home would not be there place. We are interested in meeting new people and so we would like to get to know a work awayer. We are flexible and solution oriented :)

    Help

    We need some assistance in our home to help with the children and basic household tasks such as cooking and other daily tasks of a large household. We need an extra set of hands around the house, I (Ragna V) is living alone with the kids and they are a couple of days each month hos their father. It would mostly be help with cleaning the house, cooking, shopping food and prepare dinner for evening and then in the afternoons/evenings getting the kids in some activite and getting them to bed time. But the work awayer would also have quite a bit of time for themselves. And I am very flexible and now we have good experience after having had many Work awayer from different land.

    What else ...

    Akureyri is a small town in the North of Iceland, very beautiful with a population of 18.000 people. Akureyri has several swimmingpools, nice restaurants, bars and shops. The bus runs for free all days. There is much to see in our area. There would also be the opportunity to get to know other work awayers and plenty of free time to explore the area.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The work awayer would get to experience the typical busy Icelandic family-life with lots of fun and action. We could help our work-awayer with their travel, advise them of interesting places to see in the area and try to make their journey as fun and exciting as we can.
