About Me

BECAUSE OF THE GARDEN BEING RENOVATED + MY HEALTH ISSUES, THIS SUMMER i ONLY ACCEPT GUESTS, THAT
- HAVE STAYED BEFORE OR
- PEOPLE WHO WANTS TO USE THE GARDEN AS A QUIET RETREAT FOR 3-7 DAYS
- AND YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT MY NERVOUS AND SOMETIMES LOUD, BUT ELSE VERY SWEET AND HARMLESS DOG

The garden is an allotment garden, very simple and only for use in the summer, I have an apartment elsewhere, therefore i might not be there myself all time
Outdoor toilet and no shower available, but I do have a fully working kitchen and a solar for light and charging 1 mobile/Ipad pr day.

There are 2 houses, the guest hut (see photos) has 2 single beds.
I have both duvets and sleaping bags you can use, but if you do not bring cover for duvet and pillow + bed sheets or lining for a sleaping bag, you are requested to hand wash and hang to dry before leaving

The largest house is parted in two: kitchen/shed and my room

If you want us to eat/cook together please mention in request if you eat meat/eggs/dairy products

You get water from the tap on the grass outside the garden entrance - it is very clean and sweet.
In the kitchen corner there is a gas cooker, where you can heat water for coffee, tea or do your cooking.
Just make sure to shut off the gas on the adapter after use!

Also please feel free to eat anything from the garden - potatos, tomatos, salad, herbs for tea etc.
You can also eat anything you find in the kitchen - nutella, coffee, tea, pasta, canned veggie food etc.
Eat and pay it forward
In the shed there is a small black solar battery on the right wall. It can be used for charging mobile phones and Ipads.
You can also take the battery to the hut to have ligth.

Just feel at home and enjoy your stay! :)

PLEASE: if I do not answer your request within 24 hours or you need a last minute stay, text or call me on (0045) 2812 6868 - I do not have internet (or electricity) in the garden, only at home.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to share my garden with others.

Toby, my son has travelled a lot around the world, mostly as a couch surfer and now - with the extra space in the allotment garden - I can pay his good experiences forward :)

Interests

- Eco-friendly gardening. I bought the allotment garden i late april 2015, so have a lot of changing plans. and stuff to learn - it takes time, though, as both health and money sometimes changes plans ;)
- Social responsebility ( Example: I dumpster dive to help others who can´t themselves and who need food)
- I knit a lot, to be more precise, I design sock patterns and sell them for charity

I like to know all kind of various stuff, but I guess, that anything cultural/historical will grasp my interest, expecially on the common folks plan.
Psycology, groups dynamics and such interest me a lot.

Music, Movies, and Books

Ladyhawke is my favorite movie
Pay it Foreward and The Way (has the camino as "stage") is next.
Due to a little hearing disabillith, I do not listen to much music, but we can enjoy some 70-80 rock or folk music, if you like :)
Books? Should read more mindfood, but I am a sucker for well-written crimes with a cleaver plot and an attitude to society

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
