We are a couple with a 15 year old son. Three years ago we moved to a dream spot on planet Earth, we live in a village south of Sápmi (better known as Lapland) where there is only 18 more people a part of us.
It is located in Asele Kommun, the place is surrounded by lakes, forests and wildlife. The tranquility is absolute.
We own a farm and there it is much work so we need some helping hands, a part of our house on the farm there is other outbuildings the largest one it is partly damaged but we still can save half of it, a sauna and a very cute small guest house.
We have two dogs and a cat.
In the village or we can say better "hamlet" there is not school neither shops or restaurants. For this we need to travel to Asele 26 km away from here.
We will need people with skills in construction and also in electricity and painting.
You will stay in the guest house, and will work 5 hours a day during 5 days a week.
I did loads of traveling backpacking and hitch hiking, sleeping in beaches, parks, train and bus stations, even in the street. So did Allen.
Met a lot of people, learned, and had fun, in fact i have never stopped moving, my life it is a continuous adventure.
We are vegetarians, we will not provide for other dietary needs.
We are going to start getting volunteers from june or july for a period of maximum 2 weeks, although it could be extended depending on how it is working out.
Me and Allen are very open minded, sociable, great sense of humor and hospitality, and love to meet people.
We like music and all sort of arts.
PS: The first and a half year was a difficult time, like all the beginnings when you move to a new place and to a new life, but now everything has fallen into place and we have an income and that means we can survive and we can also afford little by little the fixing of the house and outbuildings.
Hoping to meet you soon
Lourdes and Allen
