  • Description


    Independent, friendly and self going people with a sincere interest in culture and travelling are welcome here. See the beautiful area around Bodø while helping out in my house and garden.

    Bodø is the "capital" of the county of Nordland, with a central airport for the area, a university, concert hall, fantastic library etc. It is beautifully located on a peninsula overlooking the fjord and the surrounding mountains. The popular Lofoten Islands can be easily reached from Bodø with a direct ferry connection. It takes about 3 hours to get to the Moskenes Island where you'll find the beautiful and most photograped fishing village - Reine.

    Planned tasks in 2023:

    Outside: various things in the garden, such as renewing the lawn, planting, (re)moving trees and plants.

    Inside: general chores around the house.

    I want you to get the most out of your stay here. We discuss what to do and when together, and plan your time off so that you get the best possible stay according to weather and wishes. Why work on a sunny Monday if you know Saturday is going to be grey and wet? Then we swap instead. I love cooking and appreciate sharing ideas and making food together. His Majesty King Mingus, my wonderful cat, also lives here - so you have to be cool with cats.
