  • Descripción


    I belong to an international family and we are used to communicate in English. I have lived in the US for 13 years. I am a single lady working at a waldorf school; am 60+; have a number of very creative children in the area who are into permaculture, forest gardens, eco building and arts. I am interested in nature, culture, arts, spirituality, education etc. I am a curious person and like to get to know other people, their background and culture. I live in a villa in a small village in Dalecarlia. The area is beautiful with many lakes and forests. There is a bathing place close to the house. There are hiking trails as well as mountainbike trails. In the winter you can ski downhill or crosscountry. You can go visit my children at the permaculture place if you are interested. There are multiple places of cultural interest in the region. There is also a waldorf school in the area.
