The Experience

Some days we have a lot of guests in the restaurant, especially the month of December. A lot of dishes for the buffet have to be made and that asks for a lot of hands. And when everything flows... it's a joy to be part of it!

Without any doubt, one of my favourite things was meet amazing people from around the world.
Also, the landscape is wonderful and there are many activities outdoors to do.
Working with Roswitha in the kitchen is so comfortable because she has many patience when she's explaining the job. I liked when I spent more time with her and I felt that she relied on my decisions and responsability.
Unfortunately, I didn't spend so much time with Fridus working, but we could have nice conversations during dinner with all the team. He always have something wise to say.
Personally, I'd like to return

Couldn't ask for a better place for my first worldpacker experience! Fridus and Roswitha are such nice and lovely hosts and they made me feel very welcome in their home. I've shared good moments with them and their adorable dogs, as well as with the other volunteers. The work is well organized and not hard and you get time to relax and explore the surroundings; if you are looking for a relaxing and quiet place you have to go to Tolvsbo.

Thank you very much Fridus and Roswitha for this experience, I'll never forget you and my time at your place!

It’s a beautiful place, I really enjoyed lakes and forest, as well like walks with the dogs. At the time there are many volunteers the environment is so good, we used to share time together every night. The tasks were fine until there were many customers at the restaurant, at that moment under pressure Roswhita may be kind of impolite as she becomes very stressed. At the end I think she didn’t feel good acting that way. Overall it has been a nice experience.

I really liked the place. All the volunteers were nice, we played a lot of games and Fridus and Roswitha really stimulated this community feeling among the volunteers. I do have to add that Roswitha can be impolite sometimes in the kitchen when she is stressed, which I didn't like. Obviously no one is perfect, but I should give an honest review. I hold no grudges, and I also think Roswitha herself probably, in retrospect, didn't like the way she reacted in certain situations. All in all, would recommend!

My first Worldpacker-experience and it was great. Good amount of work and the work was fun. I helped out in the kitchen and served food in the restaurant. Friendly atmposhere, we had dinner and played games together every night. You really are like a family. Nice surroundings for walks, biking and swimming in the lake.
