    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In our surrounding neighborhood is beautiful nature. For example we look out our dining room window and see a glacier. From the living room window we see the ocean. Down the street is a kayak rental. Traveling with bus is possible from our town but we will most likely offer to drive around and show the person interesting sites of our country.
