    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Gotland provides a great cultural heritage. Visby, the biggest medieval town of Gotland, is only 30 minutes away by bus. I can show you around and visit places (depending on how long you're staying). In addition there is the opportunity to ride and drive (in a chariot) a horse, collect eggs, etc. Also, living in Gotland is a great opportunity to learn Swedish as in smaller parts of Gotland people speak intermediate English (though in Visby they speak perfect English.) I cook extraordinarily amazing good food (actual words of a workawayer). So you get to taste many traditional Swedish dish.

    Gotland erbjuder ett stort kulturellt arv. Dessutom finns möjlighet att rida och köra häst, plocka ägg etc.

  • Help


    We wish help for: feeding the animals, cleaning their pens, fixing stuff around the farm, repairing broken things maybe. Also help with cleaning the house, cooking & baking, doing the dishes etc. Also I would like our workawayers to be conversation partners! I like to learn about different cultures and ask questions.
    Depending on which season you come, the workload changes. In summer there is more work. We do lots of work outside. Things like: putting up a fence, working in the forest etc. In winter, it's almost like vacation: there is usually only 2-3 hours of work everyday, maximum. In the rest of the day we just chat.

    Vi önskar hjälp med t ex stängsling och andra på en gård förekommande uppgifter.
