    We are a family at 4 ..My wife and I are just above 58years. I am working fulltime at the farm and she is working as nurse in Odda. Have two children a boy and a girl. They are 29 and 31 years. They are living away from home ..having just got we are grandfarents…
    I have had help from students from many different countries during 30 years, but through another organisation. But would like to try out something new!

    I have to say that I have not been to clever answering ,most because I find it difficult to put it together with guests how just can stay some weeks,so I have been waiting fore someone that can stay longer (more than one month) and then filling in if needed with somewone that can stay if you just can stay some weeks you must email me before you want to come , and then we will se..
