  • Description


    We are a multicultural family of 6. Mum is Danish (adopted from Korea), dad from Senegal, and 3 girls, 15, 11 and 6 years old all at school and one boy 3 years old. Dad is often away so it's mostly mum and the kids at home. We speak English, French and Danish at home. We live in Vedbæk in a house with a large garden, 2 min from the beach, 2 min from the woods and 5 min walk to the station. 20 min with the train and you are in central Copenhagen. We are very social and love meeting new people from different cultures. We are a large family with many activites going on. Mum has lived 18 years in London, 5 years in Senegal and a couple of months in Japan and we love travelling and have friends all over the world.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a beautiful town Vedbæk, just 20 min north of Copenhagen. It is situated next to the beach, where we "swim" all year round. The woods are also next door and is a beautiful area. We have many bikes that you can borrow, and there are great opportunities to explore both the nature cycling, running and walking as well as cultural activites, We live close to Helsingør, (home of Hamlet) and 15 min with ferry and you are in Sweden. The station is a 5 minute walk away, and the train takes you to central copenhagen (as well as the airport) within 20 minutes. Copenhagen has everything to offer in terms of restaurants, bars, musuems, shops etc etc. We are a multicultural family that love to meet new people and are interested in different art and cultural activities. Occasionally we do smoke, but only outside in the garden.
