    Description

    come and experience THY-LEJREN WITH Us
    Thy-lejren is a place established in 1970, started out as a danish version of Woodstock festival, or inspired by it at least; for the last almost 50 years the place has turned into a kind of free alternative society.
    We are one of the small families living here.

    In our little home, We are a family of four, there is Hector who is a Jack of all trades, an outgoing, friendly and very helpful young man.
    He has studied both carpentry and economy, and is at the moment fully engaged in building our own little earthship'ish house, in the small alternative village we live.
    Hector is married to Lucy who is a professional singer, and styduing to become a primary school teacher and who also loves to make food and every other form for creativity, she is a mild and kind woman.
    Together they have two girls, Àsta from march 2013 and Alva from april 2015

    Also we have a sweet dog <3

    Thy-lejren Lies close to cold hawaii, where you can go surf,
    there is a lot of beautiful nature around,

    Magnificent animal life, and birdwatching oppotuneties
    Cultural experiences in the nearby towns
    We have our own little shop, creative house, cafè and bar
    A lot of small children
    Animals

    It is hard getting here by public transportation, there is one bus coming and one leaving once a day, exept weekends and hollydays, where there is nothing.
    But it is easy to catch a ride, or hichhike
    And we have a car, so we might be able to give you a lift, and show you around
