Hello from the heart of Scandinavia!
Dear friends of Homeexchange,
We are a family of four. My husband works at the University of Gothenburg and I for the City of Gothenburg. We have two sweet and well behaved boys.
We enjoy dinners with family and friends, music and movies, antiqueing and flea markets, the beach, walks in the forests... We prefer exchanges with people who like us are fairly down to earth, but still conscentiuos of their home as well of others'.
We are a nonsmoking family and both our homes in the city of Gothenburg as well as the cottage in Dalsland resp. are allergyfriendly.
We do have a small fish aquarium in the city, but otherwise pet free.
We really enjoy the homeexchange way of travelling since it takes us off the ordinary tourist trail and let us meet wonderful people and special places. Our exchanges have taken us all over the world with great success and we are looking forward to the opportunity of visiting your country next!
Karolina & Mats
PLEASE NOTE that due to asthmatic allergies in our family we can only exchange with cat/dog- and smokefree homes. However, we are former pet owners (cats/dogs/birds/rabbits) and are willing and able to look after your loved ones - living outside the main building. :)
Lovely apartment in a beautiful neighborhood, a pleasant stroll from an open-air market and convenient to transportation. Gothenburg is a wonderful, vibrant European city, often overlooked by Americans who only know about Stockholm. Karolina and Mats were wonderful home exchangers in our home, and we recommend them very highly.
Wonderful cottage in an enchanted location! We truly enjoyed the beautiful interior decor of the house and the garden dressed in autumn colors. Sharon, CT is a wonderful starting point for exploring the rolling hills and serene beauty of Litchfield and beyond. Driving around in the countryside you will also come across antiques shops, art galleries, beautiful homes and farmers markets. For food do not miss "When Pigs Fly" in Sharon which serves southern BBQ as well as "Harney & Sons" tea room in Millerton, New York. James and David were always ready to answer our questions and we were also looked after by the sweetest aunt living nearby. On their part our home was returned in an imacculate state and we highly recomend our american hosts as exchange partners.
We stayed in Karolina and Mats' wonderful home in the summer of 2013. We came to a nice, clean flat in the very centre of Gothenburg. It was beautifully decorated and had a warm atmosphere. We felt we stayed in a hotel suite! -with tasteful bed linen and towels, as well as delicious biscuits with tea and coffee galore.We enjoyed the tips on what to do and see as well as the great toys. Our youngest now wants a room of his own! Coming home to our own house was a wonderful thing too - as Karolina and Mats had cleaned it thoroughly and even left a present for us. We very much recommend this home exchange opportunity. Katinka - Denmark
Tommerup is a great starting point for exploring the rolling hills and fairy tale beauty of Fyn! The house itself has got nice views of the fields and pastures in the back. And plenty of room in the extended garden for kids to run around! The interior decor of the house feels fresh and very welcoming! We had the privilige of inviting our friends along on this trip and the eight of us were all very comfortable in the house. We were all provided with linnens and towels and there were plenty of room for all of us. The children truly enjoyed helping out feeding the hens, rabbits and cats and the adults the vegetable and herbs garden. Katinka and I (Karolina) had some e-mail correspondence previous to the exchange so we could make sure we were on the same page concerning the swap. It all went very smoothly! Returning back from our visit we found our home in an imacculate state and we highly recomend our Danish host family as exchange partners! What a wonderful family and lovely location for an exchange!
