  • Description


    We live in Sweden close to a wonderful lake and close to the forest. Our town has beautiful nature to offer. Many forests! Our family consists of 2 children. 3 years and 1 year old right now. I speak German and Swedish/Englisch and my husband Swedish and fluent English.

    Karlskoga as a middle seized town has many nature reserves.
    The place called Björkborn in Karlskoga is the manor house, Alfred Nobel's residence on the property of the Bofors iron works. There you can go on a museum visit to see how Alfred Nobel was living. Karlskoga i close to another big city called Örebro /30 min by car. Örebro offers great shopping possibilties, art and a beautiful castle. Close by, 20 min away with car is another town called Kristinehamn with tourist sightseeing possibilities.

    Karlskog is best for free air activities. You can swim in the lakes, tent whereever you want and have barbeques in the summertime.

    See Swedish family life and culture and go on family trips with us if u like. We care for each other and like to be active in the beautiful surrounding of the nature reserves.
    U will experience how daily life in Sweden with small children looks like.

    Sometimes we go on daytrips and of course you can join the family if u like, that would be nice.

    U will get a bike to discover the surrounding if u like and there are buststops close by to get to the bigger towns Örebro, Kristinehamn, Karlstad for example.

    If you have any questions please feel free to ask me.

  • Help


    Help is needed with the Children 3 years old and 1 years old and household of course. There is always something to clean! :-)

    We also have a garden totally not in shape which needs love and care so we would need help with that, too.

    In general I would like that you play with the kids and also play outside with them. Having fun!!:-) it would be a mixture of days including babysitting and other days garden work, organizing in the house as well and household maintenance.

    if you have any green fingers, means knowledge about planting that could be very nice but is not necessary.

    If you have knowledge about Yoga please teach me! ;) life with small children can be fun but also be restraining.
