We, Michel and Brenda, live near the town Arvika in Värmland, Sweden. Originally we come from the Netherlands. In 2006 we moved together with our two kids to Sweden, where we bought a former school building. For two years we spent all our time renovating the stately old school by the beach at Lake Glafsfjorden into a guesthouse
We love traveling ourselves and in our free time we like to explore the neighboring nature reserves by bike or canoe. Who also camp a lot or spend a few days in the wild, cooking meals on an open fire.
