  • Description


    Hallo! We are a small family of tree. Father Niclas, 35 years, forest and nature technician (forest worker), mother Nanna, 31 years, middle school teacher and Asbjørn, 1½ year, who is in nursery. We are down to earth and have a good (Danish!) sense of humour. Niclas like to be out in nature, go for hikes etc. Nanna is often in the kitchen, cooking and baking or doing handwork, knitting etc. Asbjørn is mostly playing around, and like to be outside aswell.
    This winter we bought our dream house, which is a 106-year-old farm, a little south from Aarhus. The house is places in a very small village, but there is public transportation to Odder connecting to Aarhus.
