  • Description

    I guess we are learning to see life more and more as an adventure. We aren't thrillseekers though but appreciate the simple life. Our 9 year old son Jobbe is traveling with us. He is homeschooled and discovering the wider world at his own pace.

    We like to explore,
    Make campfires,
    And then ponder about the meaning of it all,
    Cook and bake and then eating the results.
    We like music, trees, water, writing, books, building, making and mending stuff, people that are open, smoothness and of course each other....

  • What else ...

    We have been traveling and volunteering for almost two years. A great learning experience. First mainly in France and Germany and now we want to explore the southwest of England. We prefer longer stays and wouldn't mind growing roots in a place that suits us. We have a lot to offer and consider ourselves loving, warm and accepting.
