  • Description


    I'm a 33 year-old guy living on an island just off the Swedish west coast. I fish and do some foraging and gardening. Freetime is paddling, trailrunning, freediving, yoga... all things active and creative.

    I'd love some help around the house, washing the outside walls, change a plank or two. Water some berry bushes. Go out pulling crab cages. A lot of little things that hopefully don't feel like work. I'm all about enjoying the time and this place.

    Come and have a good time!

    We'll go fishing in traditional ways. I'll show you a local plant and mushroom or two. We'll pick seaweed. I've read many books, I love music, I like to walk barefoot. You can use one of my kayaks.

  • Help


    General work around the house, some fishing and foraging. You won't find any slave drivers here. Physically active, fun-loving people are welcome. People who like to sit on their behinds all day not doing much are not as welcome. :)

  • Accommodation


    Private bedroom in a house on an island just a couple of minutes from the town of Strömstad. Possibly private bathroom, maybe shared but that won't be with many people.

    I eat healthy food. Lots of local meat and fish, organic veggies, berries, etc. You can eat with me or not, up to you.

    What else ...

    Only transport to town is a boat, but it's just a two minute ride across the water. You'll enjoy beautiful sunsets. Go swimming, kayaking, running, see the marine national park up close, explore islands. If you like nature and the sea, you'll have a good time.
