  • Description


    Hello Workawayers!
    We are a loving and creative family living in the danish countryside. Our family consists of Simon (dad), Hanne (mom) and our four lovely children Jack (22), Megan (19), Tom (16) and Ben (8). We are an international family as Simon originally comes from England. Therefore all the children speak well English. Our interests are school and learning, music, football, history, nature and art. we would like you to meet a unique small harbour town on the island Mors. The island has a rich and very varied landscape. Strolls on quiet beaches, fossil hunting in the exclusive moclay, forest walks etc. The island also provides a small cinema, restaurants and two theatres and lots more. We would like to meet your requirements and fx take you to meet local schools, businesses etc. using our local contacts there are lots of posibilties. There are a few busses per day to the major town Nykøbing but we might be able to lend you our car. There is only one family bathroom. But we will manage! We are trying Workaway out because we want to meet new people. To bring the world a bit closer and expand our awareness of other cultures. We like to welcome people and be good hosts. We have got plenty of room as we live in an old school. However we are also a very busy family and could therefore also need an extra helping hand in the house and at our local school where we work. Me (Hanne) and the children are also learning German so if you speak German it would be a good opportunity for us to improve.

  • Help


    We are a busy family and therefore just need a little extra help around the house. This includes cleaning, cooking and occasionally looking after our youngest - Ben. As Jack has moved to a bigger city to study, Megan is traveling and Tom at a boarding school we would like someone to join the family and help out as the big children can't. Furthermore Hanne is the school leader at our local school and works a lot. Here we would also require some extra help with practical things.
