    Description

    Looking volunteer from middle of September 2017 forwards!

    If you like peace and the tranquility of the countryside, you are able to experience it with me (middle-aged woman), my foster son 17 (German, foster cared by me) and some animals. I understand German language (My foster son's native language), but me myself prefer to communicate in English (Or Finnish ;)! ) At home we speak mostly "FinGelisch ;)!

    We are living at the small, simple house in the small farm. We have five donkeys, horse and three dogs at the moment.

    If you are interested, please take contact so I will tell more by mail!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can experience Finnish clean and pure nature...silence, fresh air. The place, where the birds still are singing :)!
    Take a shooting swim after sauna in a clean water. Fishing at the fish-rich, clean lake. When winter and the lake is frozen, try some ice fishing too :)!
    Besides these, we here by ourselves already are two different nationalities and from a bit different cultures (Finnish, German). We have met many different nationalities through the years -easy to see we humans are similar everywhere, -only cultures and manners are different. Don't let it be distressing and rigorous -take this an experience.
