    My Name is Bettina, I am a 53 year old women who stays alone with her 2 teenager girls in the South of Norway. I work as a midwife in Arendal and Nissedal. I teached Yoga, but right now I have a little break. My girls visit the Steinerschool in Arendal. We are an open little family with the glance of humor. We like our animals in- and outdoor. The garden is a wonderfull spell for our soul. Little bit romantic style where our friends like to dream away.

    I am Bettina, 53 years old and living in the South of Norway in Arendal with my daugthers. We have a wonderful old house with a big garden ( seven appletrees , greenhouse,veggies and plenty of flowers). The person who wants to give me hand in the garden does not need to be a gardener. We are living quiet on a hill and can offer a nice rom with a view over the town. The sun is on our area all the day. One of my daughter is 17 years old and the younger one 15. They went on a Steinarschool. All of us can talk english, german and norwegian. We are able to show you the seeside and the norwegian countrystyle up in the mountains. If you want you get vegitarian food wich I will prepare by my own, so is this possible. I use all I get from the garden and need to bye some Things in from the store. We are aware to eat healthy and ecological food. To our familly belongs 4 cat and somtimes our dog Aristoteles. The country has its own charme with a lot of different spectecular landscapes. We like you to welcome in our house and looking forward to meet you with open arms.
