  • Beschreibung

    We are family of 4, from a mixed Danish /Scottish household so one way or another we are Wildling's! All of us enjoy the outdoor life and the natural adventure that travelling and the wilderness provide and very much appreciate the simple life. We are a very social family who enjoy meeting new people, discovering new ways of life and helping where we can. Scotland has a vibrant history of music and dancing and its clear that has passed down to our children also taking the time to talk to your neighbours and the people you meet at the market is very normal there and we like that approach as do our kids.

    Mum and Dad have used couch surfer for years both as hosts and surfers across the globe and had so many great unique experiences that we are now keen to get our hands dirty on workwaway. We have spent a lot of our lifes one way or another living in the mountains, from Scotland to Canada to India and all feel a real connection to the earth when it starts to rise. The mountainous region of Northern Spain is stunningly beautiful and we are very excited to spend a good amount of time exploring the many different landscapes and cultural gems that it hides. We also have many Spanish friends who we have always felt very connected to and therefore feel a natural draw towards the country.

    We spent 6 months in our campervan last year around Eastern Europe and Morocco and loved it so much we're leaving Copenhagen again and hitting the road this summer. We also really enjoy having time together as a family and are now looking for some inspiration for the next chapter of our lives. Both mum and dad are avid travellers who met in central America. We all love sports and activities, especially high adrenaline, and really appreciate the amount of time we have been able to spend doing that together, especially on the ski slopes or mountain bikes. As a family we also enjoy relaxing with some yoga and board games.
    We have spent 7 years completing renovating our 100yr old own home by ourselves, we are a family who likes to be busy... Leo our 7yr is pretty good with a Jigsaw these days! All of the family love a challenge and we are hoping to find one we can be a part of and help along the way.
    We believe in reducing our impact wherever possible... Our 4 Yr old is always very proud if she finds a light on unnecessarily and turns it off with an ANNOUNCEMENT!
