    Description

    Hi workawayers!

    We are Nynne, 49 years old and Soren, 66 years old.
    We live up in Northern Jutland in the beautifull Dronninglund Storskov.
    Our farm is Nynnes childhood home, which she took over, after her parents in 2010.
    We try very hard to live in harmony with our surroundings and could use a hand in doing so, therefore we joined workaway in April 2021. It has been a huge success up until now, w 18 wonderfull people staying here and helping out. They are now friends of the house, and luckely, some of them have already returned up to 4 times! - Need we say that workaway is definitely here to stay?
    We are sure that our succes is the fact that we have a facetime or skype w you, before you arrive. Then we all have a chance to see if the chemestry is flowing in both directions, so this is a big must for us!
    We have friends of all ages and religions around the world and always try to keep an opend mind to new things.
    We are fun-loving travelers with a good sence of humour. We enjoy life and are looking for new friends from around the world, who will come and stay with us and enjoy this beautifull place of ours. We both love music and good food.
    We have horses, cats and chickens.

    In 2024 we will need help in: ( this list is not complete, but just to give you an idea- maby have a look at the reviews left, they say it so well;-)

    BUT do you have special skills, PLEASE LET US KNOW! We absolutly love to get people w craftman skills here, and we always have something that needs to be done/fixed/replace by an expert!

    Nynne was an exchangestudent in Utah in 1991 through Rotary, and has had a BIG soft spot for exchange programs ever since! She has always traveled as much as possible since childhood, first with her parents, since then alone/with friends and now with Soren. Some of her favorite countries to visit is: ( just to name a few!) Marocco, Mexico, USA and The Faroe islands. She works as a dental highdentist monday-wensday. Is a hugh animal lover and has no kids.
    She has worked as a photographer and as a chef so she is a creativ spirit who loves being outside in her garden or horseback riding in the forest. Would love to do more yoga, but dosent have the time... She`s a dinosour when it comes to computers! But she loves to play Backgammon and going to concerts for a good live show.
    She belives that the shortes distance between two people is a smile and her favorit time is at the bonfire w friends on a summernight and maby... a cold Heineken.... She`s currently learning how to make willowtree baskets...

    Soren is retiered as a policeman, but has a job in Aalborg on saturdays, selling danish design furnitures. Danish design is a big passion for him. But his biggest passion is burgundy wine and loves to read and learn about wine and of course travel to France to visit the winemakers and the winyards.
    He also loves music and going to big concerts here and abroad.
    Soren loves the countryliving with all there is to be done here at our wonderfull farm and think it is paradise on earth.
    Soren has 3 kids, 2 living in Copenhagen and one living in Brussel.

    This is a great possibility to try living on a farm out in the most amazing forrest in North Jutland. Dronninglund Storskov is a 911 hkt forrest.
    We have 3 icelandic horses so if you are an experienced horseback rider, its possible to come along on a ride in the evening and in the weekends. We live in an area, where almost everybody has icelandic horses.
    You can learn about gardening, growing tomatoes and chillies in a greenhouse. Learn the basic skills in pruning appeltrees, cooking- we really enjoy a good meal in the evening! Its the highligt of the day, when we sit down together and talk over a good meal. We eat mainly vegan, but also lam or chicken can be on the daily menu, so you can learn some tricks, and we are both very interested in your home kitchen- if you care to share!
    We have both done a lot of traveling, so talks about the world and places to visit is always high on the list here!
    If you are a nature lover, its a wonderfull place to go for a walk, run or ride a bike. Taking in the nature and watching the birds and deers ect, listen to the wind in the pinetrees. Maby a nap in the hammock? - Always good! Maby you wanna bring books?
    We sometimes need some time for ourself, so some evenings you will need to entertain yourself.
    The big cities Aalborg and Frederikshavn are both 30 min away. Its possible to go there with us, when we go to work. The top of Denmark, Skagen, can be reached from Frederikshavn, its a 45 min trainride.

    Since we are out in the countryside public transportation is very limeted. The public bus comes by once an hour, out by the highway We only have one car, but will of course try to help in any way we can. We have bicyckles.
    Soren works in Aalborg every saturday for four hours and Nynne works in Frederikshavn monday -wensday 8 am until 4 pm. So if you wish to come along on a day off, its possible. We are very flexible and will work it out together.
    We very much like to have people staying with us, have had exchange students here for shorter periods. But this is an old farm build in 1876 so we take care of the place and expect visitores will do the same.
    If its a dry summer, we can have less wather, so bear that in mind, if you like your daily shower, maby this isent your lifestyle! We take care of the limited recources in the world and off course collect rainwather for the garden.
    We eat mainly vegetarian and try to be as self-sufficient as possible. If you can give us inspiration how to become better at this, just jump right in!
