  • Description


    Hi all working travellers! Welcome to spend some time in our house in the North of Sweden!!

    I'm a single mum with 2 kids, 7 and 12. We live in a beautiful place next to a National Park, five minutes from the center of the closest town. You can ride a bike to get to the shop or walk. In the winter there is a slope just 15 minutes from the house. Nature is close everywhere. :)

    I'm looking for someone that can help me out inside and outside the house with different things. I have ADHD and I'm a single mum working more than full time: Not a good combination when it comes to organisation ... You will be helping 4-5 hours a day. Sometimes it can be to take care of the kids in the morning so I can get some sleep (I don't have time to sleep alot...), take the dog for a walk, feed the dog, the fishes and the cat, cut the lawn, cook or bake. It all depends on your skills as well. I would just be so thankful for any possible help you can provide around the house. You need to be able to wake up early (06:00) and you can by no means leave the kids alone!

    SUMMER: In the summer (from June 1 until the end of August) we will be staying at a camping in a small caravan next to a beautiful lake, so then we can only take one workawayer. You will get your bed on one of side of the caravan and there will not be too much room inside but normally we are just in the caravan to sleep. Less to clean. You need to love camping life and compact living!

    I love to read and write and my kids are the same. I'm trying to get them out of Internet so any creative ideas are welcome.

    You would of couse be as a member of our small family.

    Regarding the covid-19 situation, this is one a the communities in Swedish with the smallest amount of infected persons. I got my 3 shots already because of my work.

    I don't smoke and I prefer if you don't smoke but at least not in the house or in the caravan. If you need to smoke you need to do it outside.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Take in the beautiful nature, ride a bike, take a walk, relax in the garden and maybe go to pet the elks at the Elkfarm nearby (only open in the summer) or go skiing in the winter. You can also take a tent and camp somewhere in the outdoors... There is not any culture stuff to see here but LOTS and LOTS of nature. You can of course take the bus to Umeå for more culture, about 1 hour ride. You need to be a person that can feel peace without the sound of a buzy city.
