Looking for independent, friendly and self going people with a sincere interest in culture and travelling. 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. It takes about 3 hours to get to the Moskenes Island where you'll find the beautiful and most photograped fishing village - Reine.

I want you to get the most out of your stay here. We plan what to do and when together, and plan the days 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 apreciate sharing ideas and making food together. Mr. Mingus, my wonderful and majestic cat, also lives here, so you have to be ok with cats.
