  • Description


    We are a young family of three living in Norway: a Swede, a Canadian, and 2 kids who aren't sure which side they're on yet :)

    Our home consists of two floors, a balcony, patio, and garden. The top floor is one open and light space, with the kitchen and living room combined. The guest room where any workawayers would be staying is downstairs inside our home.

    We keep a vegetable garden and chickens for the time being. Our home is located very close to downtown Oslo, yet has a vast forest and trail network right behind our house. Beaches aplenty within walking distance as well.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will be very close to the Norwegian capital of Oslo where there is plenty of cultural events and sights - the neighbourhood we live in is also an interesting cultural hotspot, being an alternative mecca of sorts in Norway with the highest concentration in the country of artists, PhD educated, green party voters etc...

  • Help


    We have several projects that need help around the house, such as: painting and cooking in particular.

    We also could use help with ordinary household tasks in between such as: cleaning, grocery shopping, entertaining our kids etc.

    Finally, if you have any special talents or interests, we would love for you to share this with our children through a workshop that you design.
