I am Edwina, Dutch Liberian and my Husband is Trygve a Norwegian. He works in the IT sector and I am in humanitarian and renewable energy sector. We have a 12 year old daughter and we can say with pride that she is an intelligent, decent young lady that we are very proud of, we also have occasionally my dog that visits Bingley, he is a scottish collie ( lassie like). In August, we opened up a store that sells African arts and crafts from All over Africa in Norway, promoting African artists and their work, that is my hobby and one of my passions. We are totally down to earth, easy going and honest people. We love life, good company and making good memories, we would like to create some with you.

By staying with us, we don\'t only share and experience each others culture and experience but here at Mjøndalen, we are very welcoming, down to earth and friendly, one could learn and experience the Nordic culture and hospitality, experience first hand the breathe taking land marks of Norway, and see how people are in Norway. I am from Holland and Trygve is from Norway and together we have a fun relaxed happy home stemming from our various backgrounds. We also have kayaks and bikes that you can use during your stay with us and the lake is very close to us.
We have a lovely big house in the South Eastern part of Norway, close to Drammen, spectacular view, nature and loads to see and do near and around us. We need help with taking care of the house as well as general maintenance and helping out in the store, distribute fliers, man the store etc.. Some light gardening work like raking grass and helping us with picking of various berries that we grow ( only in the summer time the garden aspect). We have opened a store selling art and crafts from Africa and will need help with marketing online on social media and help around the store. Of course we will work along side you, just need the extra pair of hands or two and some company :) We\'re also very close to the forest, lake and loads of hiking trails and waterfalls.\n\nStore is now Open so will need help with the daily running of it as well as some local marketing.
A Big house, we have a guest bedroom, and our guest are welcome to share our meal with us, I love to cook and there is always food around.
