    Thank you for your interest.

    I am not taking any homestays at this time.

    But.

    I would be interested to meet you at a local coffee house and have a conversation.

    I am not a farm. I live in town in a 5 bedroom home, (15 minutes walk from Nelson centre).

    If you are interested in the life around Nelson, British Columbia, I might be ideal for you.

    My background is in Communication. I have been involved in the 60's creating video art. In the 70's I helped to establish community radio stations in Montreal and Vancouver. In Denmark, I managed a theatre. Back in Canada I traveled with a slide-show presentation of my travels in Nepal. I am full of stories and questions. I am enthusiastic to learn from you and share experiences.

    I have now lived in Nelson since 1988. In this time I have created a community newspaper.

    So, I am very interested in communication.

    I have also opened up a 50 seat performance venue theater.



    It works mainly for acoustic music and movies.

    In addition, we are also used by local comminty groups for their events.

    I live alone in my home, so having helpers and guests brings joy to me as I do like people.

    I have traveled around the world. I have gone west from Vancouver through Asia, lived in Nepal, lived in Denmark, and arrived back in British Columbia from the east.

    Ideally, you become part of my family. That means we eat dinners together. I am not a vegetarian, but I do eat veggies. You get a beautiful quiet room and all the food you can eat.

    You help around the home, much as you would do in your own home. It is good if you like cooking. I get to experience other foods, and dinner is the glue that binds us.

    I have three small gardens that could use your help.

    What else is there to do? That is up to you and your skills and interests. We can talk.

    What can I give you? I know English very well, so I can help you improve your language skills. But, you should already be able to have a conversation. Maybe you need help with your accent or proper use of expressions.

    I know the area very well including some hot springs in the woods. We can go on short day trips. Depending on your interest, we could go on short hikes. Or, I could suggest hikes for you.

    You will have time to explore on your own. Nelson is quite interesting. It has a strong arts and cultural scene.

    Key words - communication, danish, Scandinavia, newspapers, internet, peace, nonviolence, folk and jazz music, movies, photography, video making, philosophy, happiness, making a better world.

    No cigarettes smokers please. I eat veggies and meat, (chicken, fish, beef, not pork). I try to eat organic as much as possible. Two weeks stays at least, (maybe longer) Travelers only. I only take one person at a time as I don't have work for two. Please include a photo with your first email if you do not have one with your profile. Let me know you have read my profile by mentioning the Cafe or Denmark or something else unique about my profile. Good travelling to you.
