    Description

    I have a house and some cabins that I rent out to tourists, where I get much help from workawayers.

    If you come from a "red country" I can write a letter saying that you will be staying here in the 10 day quarantine period. I think I have enough people for January and february, unless you are a very skilled person.
    I could also need someone who are good with graphic design/video/photography in the spring/summer, so let me know if you think you are a good candidate =)

    I am waiting for some answers from the municipality about what we will be allowed to do, so at the moment I am not sure when I will need more workawayers than I already have, but hopefully in Jan/Feb I will know more, and anyway for the spring/summer I will probably need help.

    Next things planned: Digging and making parking space, put stones around the house, make terrasse/veranda from wood we got for free, some painting, moving/making firewood, maybe plant some seeds/flowers in the spring and other things that come up.

    Winter 2020: most workawayers stay in the house, and some stay in a cabin. For the summer more workawayers will be staying in a cabin, and maybe some in my campercar.
    Food: There is enough food, but I buy most of the food at half price because of the expiration date. So it can be several days with similar meals. To be able to have many workawayers I need to keep the costs down, and if you have "special needs" that is not on discount, you might have to buy that yourself. We can cook vegetarian meals, and have meat/fish on the side.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In Kristiansand, there are many forests, never more than a short walk away. Near the town center are the areas Baneheia and Odderøya, perfect for walking recreation or winter activities at winter time.

    Swimming: Do not forget your swimwear, swimming possibilities are many, outdoors and indoors, in saltwater or freshwater, swimmingpools, beaches (among them the Town Beach and Hamresanden) and rocks.

    The beautiful archipelago off Kristiansand (Skjærgården) consists of amazing landscapes, a paradise of islands, skerries, and rocks. In the summer time, you can reach it by sight-seeing-boats from the town centre. The archipelago and the surrounding fjords is also a perfect setting for sailing and fishing

    Fishing: The are many possibilities. The sea is full of fish and is free. There are many good lakes in Baneheia, just a short walk from the town or if you fish in the rivers in the area, you must purchase a fishing license. The rivers are rich in fish like salmon and seatrout.
