  • Description

    Description

    We are an international family of 4. Dad German. Mum Danish. We have been expats for over a decade and have now returned to my home country Denmark but we miss the international interaction and inspiration. Our children, twins that are both 10 yrs. old are forgetting their English and we would love to welcome an international spirit into our home and hearts that could speak English with us and help us out in our busy every day. And if you want to learn Danish, we could totally help you with that as well.
    We are early birds so our day starts early around 06:00 am with kids getting up and ready for school/work, even though we do not expect you to get up with us that early. You can get up whenever you want.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have lived all around the world so we can share our inputs from different kind of places. Næstved where we live, is a typical Danish suburb with 50.000 people. Næstved is an hour away from Copenhagen by train. We are a relaxed but busy family so structure and order is necessary. We love to play boardgames/cardgames and be outside. We care about our health and love to exercise. I am a hypnotherapist and my husband a CFO. We both work from home so always someone to enjoy lunch with.
    Feel free to contact me if you want me to send you videos from previous volenteers on how they found their stay with us (I can't share any videos here).

  • Help

    Help

    We mostly need help in the house with cleaning, cooking, washing, ironing and garden but we would require someone who are open to ad hoc projects as there are ALWAYS something to do. Don't be afraid if you don't know how to do all the tasks. We don't expect you to and we can teach you everything.
    We prefer a non-smoker and only one workaway at a time.

    We are neighbour to a golf course so if you are into golfing then you can walk there and play. We also live within walking distance from the water and a forest. My husband and I bathe - all year around. There is a bigger beach just 5 km. away. In your sparetime you could explore the surrounding area. It is great for cycling, running. You could also see the rest of Denmark. In 4 hours maksimum you will reach a border or the water. Copenhagen - the Capital is an hour away with train.

    You can sit in your own room or in the living room space with a view to the sea. But as you will be sharing the livingroom with my husband who is mostly on the phone, you will need to have ear phones so you don't get disturbed by his calls.

    Can possibly accept pets

    We have a dog ourselves so as long as your pet is ok with her then it will be fine. She is ok with other dogs but she will let them know that she is the boss around here. However, we only want to welcome your pet if it is housetrained and does not ruin stuff around the house.
