We are a small family of three, soon to be four; Ken (32), Una (25), our daughter Ria (2,5) and a baby boy who joins the family in September. Oh, and our little furry friend Aura, the Persian cat.
Last year we moved from the capital to Vágur, Suðuroy, in search of a quieter life and to have more time enjoying the first precious years of childhood with our kid/s. So we bought a small house in need of renovating, which we will work on the next few years.
Our day to day life is very much centered around Ria, where we try to have a fun and stress free life, with Una as a stay at home mom with a webshop on the side, and Ken working full time as a construction painter.
The work tasks for any potential guests would depend on the individuals themselves. You like gardening? Then great, you can do that! Or maybe you're a handyman of some sorts? Fantastic, we have a lot stuff in need of repairing and to build around the house!
We could also use a helping hand in the kitchen and with daily chores in general. Especially now with a baby on the way!
Ria also loves to meet new people, even people who don't speak her language. So we would gladly welcome guests into our home to join us in our everyday life!
We are very laid back and open minded people who tend to welcome the idea of a different way of doing things, thus we stumbled upon this exciting concept of WorkAway. No real expectations, let's just see where it takes us 🙂
If this sounds interesting to you or you want to hear more about us, please don't hesitate to contact us! It would be our pleasure to host you.
Oh and of course, we are surrounded by a breathtakingly beautiful nature, which you absolutely must experience for yourselves. We would gladly help you in any way to ensure you have a great time whilst here in the Faroe Islands.
