Help around the house
Except from the working hours helping, you should be interested in family-activities. Like nearby trips with trekking, climbing (indoor/outdoor/bouldering), yoga, mountain biking, swimming, go to beach (in season), skiing (in season, both crosscountry and downhill), play music, photographic, PC-gaming, go to restaurant, hang out with friends. This is where the social and culture exchange should take part. This is also where we would love to guide you in the rounding to the places you want to explore.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
