    Hello traveller - and welcome to Fyn, near Svendborg :-)

    We've had wonderful Workawayers this Spring, but could use a little help in August weeding the garden and paiting a fence. One week of easy work :-)

    We are a female, funny, friendly, well travelled and easy going couple: Ninna (accountant + musician) and Bente (sculptor + designer) and our three darling, social cats.

    We'are inviting one, preferably two travellers to our lovely old cottage in a lively village (Vester Skerninge) right between Svendborg and Faaborg.

    For 5 hours work a day we offer:

    - mutual social and cultural exchange
    - great vegetarian, homemade food
    - good company (Ninna is usually off for work - Bente also works from home)
    - free wi-fi and access to computer
    - a great daybed in our newly decorated guestroom with private balcony
    - or stay in "your own" spacious, clean and fairly new campervan in the garden
    - quality bicycles
    - 5 km. beautiful countryride to the sea
    - 4 km. beautiful countryride to the forest
    - 10 km. to Svendborg and Faaborg
    - lots of wonderful sceneries and places to visit in the area.
    - busstop to Svendborg and Faaborg just 1 min. away.

    We prefer traveller/s used to work with their hands, are driven by great self motivation and independency. You also need to show an outgoing, serious but also fun attitude :-) We prefer travellers who speak a fairly good English and can communicate openly.

    Looking forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you to our paradise :-)

    Have a safe and fun journey whereever you're going.

    Ninna & Bente

    PS. We can of course pick you up and drop you off again. Smoking is ok outdoors :-) Ask if any questions. Thanks.
