Program Details

I have traveled extensively around the world, I really like to explore different cultures, try the cuisine, exchange experiences with locals and fellow travelers - and through Worldpackers I can do that at home while travelers come to me for this exchange - how excellent isn't that! : )

As well as EXPERIENCING living in a Swedish home in a relatively small town (by European standards), you will get an opportunity to know the local area, the sights, nature gems and take part in different activities.
You will get an insight into how it is to run different businesses, and spend some time in my own personal paradise - the summer house.

It's of primary importance that you are interested in a healthy life-style and SELF-DEVELOPMENT, the opportunity for interesting talks, to join in YOGA and meditation with the goal to find a balance between your mind, body and soul.


Activities & Shift

It helps if you know a bit about everything, and/or are open to learn new skills.
Tasks will differ from day to day, we'll decide each day after breakfast.

You will some times work individually, at other times with me, in the town house (Helsingborg) or at the beach house located 200 m from a beach and 25 kms from Helsingborg.

Meals are co-created and give you a chance to taste something different, and for me to taste some of your favorites.

Let us know if you have special skills like decorating, painting, carpentry, plumbing or other handyman skills.
That would open up an for a longer stay.


Rules

Flexibility and dedication to the time invested on both sides is a must.
It's important to give people and places a chance before you judge them. That goes both ways. Hence the minimum of 3 weeks stay.

We both make a commitment in effort and time, the dates are blocked for you and it takes time to find a replacement. If you leave earlier than agreed you agree to pay a compensation of 50 Euro.

Depending on weather, and tasks completed,
days off are spent team building,
dedicating time to self-development,
chilling at the beach, hiking in a nearby nature reserve, or sight-seeing.

We do not welcome smokers, heavy drinkers or drug users, and the diet is mainly vegan,
complemented by egg, fish, seafood and occasionally chicken.
