We are an international family - my husband is Norwegian and I'm Lithuanian.
My husband works with in health sector and I'm a home staying mom so far - crazy about good food and books.
I'm typical Lithuanian, he's typical Norwegian and together we're quite a crazy mix :)
We have 5 kids and two cats that live with us and 3 other kids that are living away from us.
So we kinda expect you to be not allergic to kids and cats.
We live in a beautiful country side in Lunde, 5 km away from dow town.
Lunde is an spectacular place right at the heart of Telemark and it's amazing channel. So it's definitely perfect for a nature lovers. Bigger towns around offers some other opportunities as well as Lunde - like finding a seasonal or temporary job. (Bø is a student place, with some bars and café around, and a university there, Skien is 45 km away - bigger place, shopping centres and more action.)
Summertime is loaded with tourists around and winter is perfect for winter sports in this area.
The one willing to come here must be aware of staying long away from city and its noise - the life here goes pretty slowly.
So if you are in live with spectacular nature and mountains - this place is just perfect for you - runaway from big city stress.

We are offering an experience of multicultural family - sharing our differences and our traditions, showing around the area a little.
As my man is working a lot, it's mostly me who needs an extra help. Basically some help with childcare and house chores. We might ask to deliver or to pick up kids sometimes so it's great to have a driving licence.
English, Norwegian, Lithuanian.
We offered a separate room at the lift. It's heated with an fire place. So u gonna have your private space although bathroom and kitchen is shared.
Really good option for a couple - we have double bed in the room.
The whole Telemark is full of spectacular mountains. So it is a perfect place for hiking and winter sports. Summer time offers even more - swimming, fishing, boats over the whole Telemark Channel.
A town next to us - Bø - is famous for it's enormous water amusement park - Sommarland. Also it's know as a students town - so ibe can find there bars and cafès and bookshops.
Skien is 45 km away and it's famous for it's China. That's a city full of cafes, bars and a little bit more of a city life.
