    Descripción

    I moved to this village from Stockholm 10 years ago, built a house and took over the convenient store in the village to make a living. I love the calm and quiet life up here, and if you’re a restless person used to have lots of people around you as in a city life this is probably not the place for you.
    My parents moved up with me, and they live in the village opposite my store, so they help out with all my projects, and they are a great companionship as a helping hand in my store.

    I live on my own with my cat and dog. I walk 3 km to my store with my dog where we spend all days all year around besides Sundays when it’s closed. I would definitely enjoy the company, and I always have projects either around my home or the association involving villages around. I also own a village house where we have activities, where I rent out rooms and have a digital hub.

    In the winter my dog and I often visit a musher where we go dog sledding since my Daisy is a Siberian husky.
    We love to spend our free time in the forest or in my yard. I like to experiment with plants and try to grow vegetables.

    I seldom use my car but if I do I go for a ride to Finland or to a village nearby. I often walk, ski or use my bike or even snow shoes in the winter.

    I stay in shape and practice yoga and meditate, read books, use internet but seldom watch tv. I love to sit in my conservatory watching the view, lighting the fireplace and just enjoy the quietness.

    Besides running my business I run the village house with an association trying to create some activities for the elderly around here. I live close to the border to Finland where the village of Muonio is, and a few 1000 people live there compared to this village with only 50 people.

    Nature is fabulous with some cultural things to see and to explore in its surroundings. Here we have far to everything like 100-200 km to hospitals, banks, veterinary etc if we don’t count in Finland which is 13 km away. In other words we use more of another country’s services than our own. This could definitely be a new experience for someone who is used to have everything close by.

    The school is closed from far back so unfortunately not much activities involving kids since the village don’t have kids or younger people at all, so an odd situation for city folks for sure.

    In a small place like this you know everybody and you learn to get along with the people you have around you.
    The culture here is to use what the forest gives you, and a great benefit could be to see how we take advantage of that. All seasons have something to bring. In the winter you have the ice fishing and most people are busy feeding the birds, in the spring you work with gathering the fire wood for the winter, in the summer you go blueberry picking, cloudberry picking etc and you go fishing. In the fall you have the hunting season.

    I have very little time to take care of my own home and the village house (used by the association) which would be a great help. I own the store and the building that goes with it, so I have plenty just with that. Volunteers won't be asked to help with the business.

    Next to my house is an old house which is now hosted for some time. It also needs some attention once a week when the workers that rent it go home.
    Simple things like help to clean the houses, yard work, some renovation and care for my cat and dog, but mostly I would enjoy the company, and since I am the store owner I know people all around, so things to do always turn up.

    I prefer someone from age 30, and also because there are no young people in this area.

    I have both Swedish and Finnish customers in my store, so those languages come in handy as English, but even tourists pass by, so I would love to practice my French and German. I even had 4 years of Spanish in school.

    Interest in nature is the key since we have it all around, so just to go out for a barbeque is a relaxing thing, a walk with the dog or to check out things to see in our surroundings. Skiing, walk with snow shoes, dog sledding or going for a ride with the snow mobile/4-wheeler in the summer.

    Transportation around here is none, so you have to rely on someone with a car, but I do try to go to Finland to shop once a week, and to Pajala 110 km away every now and then.
