    Description

    Hi,

    Edit: From around August 2021 we are looking for a workawayer that would like to come and stay with us, preferably more than 2 weeks. This due to odd working hours and the need that we have of having somebody to be at home with the children when we are at work. It is a plus if you have a drivers license since they have activities some days a week a few kilometers away from home. If you are a student at Gothenburg University this could be an opertunity for you. If you have experience from waitering in restaurants we can show you where some of our previous workawayers have found jobs in Gothenburg (requiers a working viza).

    Since we will let you spend some time alone with our children, we prefer having a female workawayer, or if you are a couple.

    Presentation:

    We live in a family house situated 25 km and minutes outside of Gothenburg. We are a family of two adults and two children and a lazy cat. ;-)

    We have a garden where we summertime grow some vegstables, for ie potatoes, cucumber, broccoli and sallad.

    We would like help with some harvesting and gardening work, but mainly with household work, cooking, cleaning and help around the children for ie help them wash up, accomompany them while playing outdoors, or with writing and reading practice. Also if you have a drivers license we could use some help with taking them to some of their activities.

    If there would be time over, and if you are interested in wood work there might be some small projects of that which you could help us out with, for ie building a tool shed, a bicycle shed, a pathway, some painting and perhaps a chicken coop. :)

    You don't need to help us out with all of these things, only with those things you are interested in and believe you have skills in.

    We can offer you your own bedroom furnished with a bed, desk and a bureau to keep your clothes in and a wardrobe. Our house has five bedrooms and our family uses three on the first floor. On the first floor there is also one bathroom (a second bathroom with sauna in the basement), a kithcen and a living room. On the second floor we have two bedrooms and one more living room. One of theese bedrooms on the second floor will be yours to use, and the other one is used by the children as a playing room.

    From our house you have a 10 minute walk to the train station from where you can catch the train to Gothenburg when you like. In our family we have two train passes which you can use for free when we don't use them, like in evenings or in weekends. Every wednesday my husband is also free from work so then you can have his train pass all day long. :)

    Next to the train station there is also a lovely lake. It takes aprox 1 hour to walk around the lake. And on the other side of the lake there is a castle with wonderful surroundings, horses, boats, fishing etc.

    Unfortunately we don't accept smokers due to allergies. And because of the same reason we also don't want you to wear any perfumes.

    Also good to know is that we try to live life with a smallest possible carbon footprint. Greta Thunberg makes us proud of being Swedes. Google her! :) That means we no longer use Aircraft and would be thrilled if you can consider traveling to Sweden also without Aircraft. Within Europe travel with train and buses are real easy. Google InterRail and Flixbus for example. :)

    Our internet access is fine, but sometimes it takes me a while to answer your emails due to that I want to speak with my husband about them before I answer, and we don't see eachother so often because we sometimes both work odd hours.

    We live close to Gothenburg. Only 25 minutes with the train. There are lots of things to do. Around here there is a lot of untouched nature which is beautiful to walk around in. There is also a beautiful lake nearby where you can take a swim or fish.
