    Description

    Hey. We are a couple in our 30'ese. We have two adoreable children (...most of the time ;). A boy called Aron 10 years old and a girl called Miriam 5 years old. We also have a wonderful cavalier dog called Moses 2 year old. We're living in the Faroe Islands. We are very easy-going, loving new experiencing, traveling, music, singing and lots of other thing. We want to get to know people from around the world, and that's why we want to host workaway'ers.

    We live in a village called Skáli, that has about 600 inhabitants. The Island we live in is called Eysturoy. The surroundings are very peaceful and we live about 100 meters away from the sea.

    We are a christian family, and attend church almost every sunday.

    Magni works as a leader for a welfare work in the capital
    Helena works as a speech and language pathologist in a special centre
    Aron goes to school and Miriam is in kindergarden in daytime

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can offer you a great deal of insight to the faroese way of living.

    In our family have a lot of sheep, and if you come in october or june you can experience driving the sheep into the fold, and be a part of either shearing the sheep in june or sheep slaughtering.

    In late august we go fulmar hunting by boat.

    In november there is Hare-hunting. My brother is keen on that.

    We can also offer you guidance to what to see and where to be around the faroes :)

    We both love music and try to attend the festivals in the summer.

    Help

    We bought a big house 200 square meters i two floors with a big garden two years ago, and we need help fixing things, building, help us to renovate for example paintjobs and diy-projects.
    ---
    we mainly need help with our renovation projekt inside our house. We are therefore mostly interested in hosting workawayers that have some carpentry skills. These are some of our projects:
    - Moving the stairs
    - Building a conservatory
    - move some and tare some walls down
    - paint floor
    - install windows
    - and many more little stuff :)
    - renovate kitchen

    and so on....if you are able to help out og do some of this projects you are very welcome to write us.
    ---

    We have a couple of garden-project we need help with too.

    Of other things it's general maintenance in the house and help with the daily chores.

    If you have some other things in mind, or if you are particular good at some things you are very welcome to write us, and we will find something that suits you.

    The age of our WorkAwayer is important 22+ years

    If you smoke it will be outside, and as we both don't drink alcohol, we would prefer if this would be kept to a minimum.

    Accommodation

    You will get your own room on the second floor. Sharing the kitchen and bathroom. If you are more than one we will figure something out if you don't want to share the bedroom. We will provide the food, but as the schedule in our home is different from day to day we expect that you can accommodate yourself. We hope you can sometimes cook dinner, we love to try different foods.

    What else ...

    In your free-time you can do pretty much anything you want. We are very flexible and if you have a daytrip or something, you can work in the hours another day or in the evening. You can borrow all our equipment as long it's safe and legal. We have bicycles, fishing gear. If we don't have use for the car you can perhaps borrow it too.
