Experience life in a Danish family in the countryside not so far from the City of Copenhagen
Hello everyone. We are a Danish Family consisting of 5 members, 3 children at the age of 6, 10 and 16. The father Mikael works as a nurse and the mother Benedikte as an anthropologist. We moved to the countryside a year ago from Copenhagen and enjoys the rural life. We have a big house so there is plenty of space for you to stay and enjoy some time in Denmark. We like to meet people from other countries and to get new friends.
We are only looking for volunteers, who really like children and also enjoy playing with them. Our children are raised in a democratic way, so at times they are noisy and naughty, so you need to be able to accept and enjoy wild kids....However, mostly they are really adorable and quite well-behaved.
We need a little help in the daily life in the house, with cleaning and in the garden with organic culturing and our ducks and chicken. If you are interested in shamanic experiences, you might also get it here. Our place is occassionally a gathering place for various kinds of shamanic practices and rituals related to the shamanic practices of the indigenous people of Mongolia, Siberia and North America. Benedikte lived in Mongolia for many years and Mikael lived in Greenland for many years.
We live 1 hour away from Copenhagen, so when you stay at our place you both have the rural experience and it is easy to get to the Capital Copenhegen by train.
We usually do not host guests less than three weeks, because it takes time to get to know each other and as we see time as crucial to ensure that you and we get thhe best from the exchange.
Important note: We expect that you beside working 4-5 hours a day, participate in everyday family life and chores, such as help with preparing meals and cleaning up after the meals and sometimes play with the children. We do not consider this as part of the working hours, but crucial for you and us getting involved in each other's life and making it a real cultural exchange.
We are rather busy during weekdays, so getting involved in the family and getting to know each other, it is important that you are open to participate in cooking etc, which is a good time for conversations
