  • Description

    Description

    I am born in Germany and a kind of nomad. I love the Scandinavian countries and immigrated to the North of Norway after after my studies. I spend most of my life time in Sweden, but recently I worked and lived abroad in 11 years. I love to meet all kind of people, work, live and learn together as I did the last years in International Schools. I just returned to my little house in a village in the South of Sweden, because my daughters and grand children live near by. I love to meet them as often as possible for small adventures and dinners.
    You find three university cities near by: Lund, Malmö and Copenhagen, but you even find beautiful nature around: Nationalpark 800 m away, naturereserve 100 m, lakes in bicykel distance, outdoor bath 250 m, great sandy beaches around, 24 km to 65 km distance. I want to start a collective living here, just now it is only me and sometimes a student, renting a room.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a teacher, worked with language and literature all my life, but even as a teacher in sustainable tourism and tour operator. My interests are to live a suistainable life, recykling, permaculture. I lived in Scandinavia about half part of my life, 30 years, and can tell you a lot about both nature and culture: customs, history, landskapes, food, touristic attractions. Besides this I am a certified mountain guide in Sweden and love to use food from nature to prepare delcious vegetarian food.

    Simple, but charmig: private sleepingroom, shared bathroom or in summer time: room in garden house with WC and shower inside the main house. I provide you of course with food, a or two vegetarian/vegan warm meals a day (I even worked as a cook and my food is international cooking, mostly asian style).

    What else ...

    The village has the oldest stone church in the South of Sweden, I have bicykles, there is public transport in form of buses from the village to the town and train 1station, 10 km far away in Lund. As mentioned above, there are countless possibilities for events and adventures in nature and culture here. I even live beside an ecovillage that is interesting to get to know. I am just retired, hope to restart my writing soon. During my life time I have mostly lived with people and I feel it natural to share living with all kind of people. The last decade I lived with much younger people with meant a mutal exchange: they teach me about their country and history, help me with IT, I share my life experience and knowledge with them.
