    Description

    Hi
    I am a single mother of 2, a 5 year old boy and soon to be 18year old girl. My daughter is currently living in a hostel in the nearby town where she’s going to school.
    I am originally from Kenya in Africa but have lived in Norway for the past 15years in a small village called Karasjok Norway which lies in the arctic circle. The village has a population of about 2700 people mainly the Sami aboriginals and have the Sami language as their first language, but Norwegian and English are languages that most people use.
    If you are interested in learning about other peoples cultures, this is definitely a place to be and will be humbled to host anyone with interest.

    I’m interested in hosting one person at a time preferably a lady over 22yrs of age and must like children. I’d also like the person to be open in terms of allergies food or otherwise and also say from the beginning what one doesn’t eat.

    Take contact if interested.

    Regards Anne
