    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It is mainly up to you :-) I am used with people of various backgrounds and cultures as i was active hosting travelers (coachsurfing) and traveld quite a bit my self. You can learn norwegian if you wish and I can happily share with you my experience with moving to and living in Norway, as well as my travel stories, if you are interested. Bente is also very interesting to talk to as well as having great interest in other coultures.
    There are abundant opportunities for hiking, skiing and fishing right out the door.

    Help

    I need mainly help with the pigies, as I am allergic to their fur, and some cooking. In winter, I would ask you to move the snow, if it is necessery and in sommer to move the lawn (once a month). When I am traveling I would like you to take care of the house and animals (including the dog), so you need to be an animal lover.
    Bente needs help mainly in the not-winter period - different tasks on her property.
    You don't need any special skills but a big heart for the animals and people around you.

    I am living in the town close to everything, but still in a very quaiet area, close to the shore. You will have your own bedroom and share the rest of the house with me.
    Bente lives outside Narvik in the mountains, at the end of a valey called Råndalen. Very beutifull place 45 min drive from Narvik. When you wish to stay some days in the woods with Bente, you will have your own room and bathroom. We will provide you with transport.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I have great experience as a coachsurfing host, so I am used to metting new people and having them in my house.
    When I came two Norway I was staying 1,5 year with a Norwegian family as aupair, so I also know it from that side.
    I would like you to stay at least three months, but if it works for both of us you can stay as long as you wish.
    If you are two that want to travel toghether, probably we can arrange for that.
    No smoking at home.
    Just ask if you have any questions.
