  • Description


    Hey, Tobias (45) and Amelie (14) are we, a father and daughter living in the beautiful Swedish countryside town of Vissefjärda.

    We always like to have guests and visitors around, and we could use some help around the house and garden, so we thought it would be fun to sign up on workaway. I, Tobias, am a pretty outgoing and extroverted guy who likes to talk to and learn from people of different backgrounds. I'm looking for people who are also extroverted and social, who are interested in interacting with me and my daughter, going to different events and activities together, etc. But I'm really not so inspired when it comes to the garden... it would be great to have people take some initiative in the garden and help me get started with vegetable beds, planting flowers, etc. We would also like to have more English spoken in the house so that my daughter can improve her English.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I would like to show travellers around this part of Småland, for example I think it would be fun to take workawayers to Kalmar, Öland, Karlskrona, etc. I want my workawayers to have a good time! That's what its mostly about for me, just hanging out and getting to know people from different backgrounds and sharing Swedish culture, events, cities, nature, etc. I like to play golf, and Amelie likes to go horseback riding, so that's something else workawayers could do as well. Here in Vissefjärda there are some beautiful lakes and forests, a pizzeria and chocolate shop/café, and a gym, and you would be welcome to borrow some bikes and go exploring, go fishing, etc.

  • Accommodation


    Workawayers get their own room with a bunk bed and a private toilet. Otherwise we share common spaces in the house like the kitchen, dining room, and bathroom (with shower). I live pretty centrally in the town of Vissefjärda, very close to a lake with some nice walking paths. My house is about 120 m2 and the garden is about 800 m2. We will eat our meals together and share cooking and cleaning chores. Sometimes I'm away working for a whole day, so then you'll be on your own.
