Hej hej, from Stockholm city and its Archipelago islands. Our header photo is from an exchange in Font Romeu, Pyrenees.
We are a family of four: Åke (pronounced almost like okey), wife Mette and two children. Klara 15 years go to school.
Our cover/header picture above is from our sucessful exchange, in Sud France in 2013, in the Pyrenees close to Font Romeau.. Our profile photo is recent from Koonz' cat at the Guggenheim museum, Bilbao.
Åke is a Stockholm university professor (sociology, work and management), Mette is an agronomist/biologist, working at the Swedish Environ mental Protection agency with biodiversity.
Klara likes jogging, theatre, and choir, and loves to write short stories. Klara plays the piano.There is a piano in the living room.
Mette comes from Denmark so we go there often for Christmas, and long weekends and in the summer we like to stay in our country house to swim and walk in the forests -- or travel abroad. Sometimes we stay in the archipelago house in winter too.
We have no pets, and we are non-smokers. And all of ous care for our appartment and house, and will do the same with yours.
We made already seven home exchanges via this site, and four times informal home exchanges, for 1-4 weeks, with families in France, Spain, Italy, the US. We are looking forward to learning and surprises and experiencing new places from the perspective of local residents.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Mette and Åke
December 29 — January 6, 2016 These dates are flexible
After Christmas we would like to go to Rome. Only the flat in the city will be available for exchange. Next Summer we are looking for Bretagne, France and Fårö-Gotland Sweden.
October 24 — November 1, 2015 These dates are flexible
For autumn school holiday we are thinking of exploring any interesting major EUROPEAN CITY with sights, music , art etc. 5-7 days roughly. Berlin is an example As only two of us will travel these days, Klara and Åke, our archipelago house will be avalable, but not the city apartment, will be available for simultaneous exchange. (City apt probably available for non-simultaneous).

En vecka i ovanstående period skulle vi vilja byta.
