  • Description


    We are a couple (35/38 years old) We would like to meet new people and learn about other cultures and languages.
    We prefer hosting couples or friends, independent people that are at least 25 years old, and non vegetarians, because we like to eat meat!
    Geir is a big strong funny man with a big beard and a big heart. He just finished his education as a construction engineer and his big passion is fishing. I am a tall curly half african nurse and I work part time in the Ambulance while I take a master to be a midwife. My big passion is to travel but at the moment I have to stay at home so I would like the world to come to me . I also like to be creative and make things. I really enjoy playing backgammon, knitting and sewing (which I can teach if you would like to learn). Our dream is to live by the coast, on a hill, by a river, close to the forest with lots of sun, animals and family….:)
    (And we had a lot of fun making this add).

    We have a 4 year old son named Atlas and a girl born in january 2018 - Alfa , we are very much in love. I am staying at home with Alfa and Atlas is in the kindergarten.

    We love to teast food from other countries, so bring some of your favourite recipes! We also ask that everyone that stays with us participates with household chores (dishes, meal plan, grocery shopping, etc.).

    From the 30 of october we need help with house work, babysitting and some help in the kitchen. Elisa have her last period of practical training in the hospital and Geir go to the university some day of the week.

    We are adding on to our house just outside Hamar, a town with 30,000 people.
    If you don't know much about building houses but are a little bit handy, this is the place you can learn how to do it. If you already know- perfect!
    We will need some help in the garden during the spring and summer.
    We ask that you volunteer for a 5 hours a day, 5 days a week, but we are very flexible and if you need to take a day off than we can work around it. There can be som loong and some short days,
    We would like to have flexible ,happy, outgoing people staying with us!

    In the winter the temperature is below zero between -5 and -15 and it is a great place for winter activities of all kinds. The spring will come in april and we will still have need of help:) We also live near nature where it is nice to go hiking. We have public transportation close to our house.

    We are flexible and hope you are to.
    We can offer guidance of the city, recommendations for hiking trips, great meals, and a relaxing environment.

    When you send us a request, please keep it simple and not too long.
