  • Description


    Danish- German bilingual family looking for a hand here and there. We live on the lovely island of Bogø with our three children, two dogs, three sheep, 5 rabbits, and chicken and ducks. We live close to the water and the woods and yet are close to a bus route, a school, a shop and a very good cafe. We speak German and Danish at home and are interested in language exchange. We also speak English and a bit Italian.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Bogø is a brilliant place. There's a thriving and friendly local community and lots of beautiful Danish countryside all around you. Our animals are very friendly, there's much to eat in the garden and if you choose to give us a hand with the guest flat ie be there with us you could probably get a bit of diy experience, get language exchange, and sail on the Ida ferry ( my husband works there).

    We' d love someone to give John a hand with the guest apartment and do bits and bobs around the place. I'm also always doing housework so if you happen to feel like hoovering please do. But essentially I guess we would like to meet someone who wants to be here when we're not. We'd like to meet you and show you the ropes and introduce you to the animals and then we'd like to leave you to enjoy our wonderful island while we are away.
