    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There is a lot to keep you busy around here, there are lots of biking and walking trails, or just relaxing and swimming at the beautiful lake.
    In our spare time we enjoy, hiking, biking, yoga, swimming, skiing, playing piano and dancing.

    We are looking for a third arm in our family, someone speaking and practicing one of the above language with the girls and supervising them while we are at work etc. The Workaway-schedule during the week will be very flexible, weekends are off. We are not really routine people, often changing plans in the morning for what we are doing that day, so if you thrive on routine, this is probably not for you.

    Sleep: We are more night owls than early risers, with wake up between 7:30-9 most mornings, and breakfast around 10, and bedtime for the girls between 9-10 depending on the night and what we've been up to. If you're a super early bird, this is probably not the gig for you, although if you wanted morning time to yourself I'm sure we could work around it.

    Food: We love to try and taste new food from other countries.
