Quiet family living in Swedens second largest city

Welcome to Göteborg, the second largest city in Sweden, situated on the west coast! Göteborg offers shopping, historical sites, fine dining, music, theatre, and closeness to great nature and wild life, both in land and on the coast. Our city is also conveniently situated in between Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen (you can reach any one of them in 3-4 hours, by train).

We are a family of four: Anders (web developer), Anna (speech therapist and researcher) and our children Harry (born 2009) and Kajsa (born 2011). We live in a townhouse (150 square meters) in a quiet, but easily accessible area. On the first floor you find kitchen, sitting room and guest toilet. The second floor consists of three bedrooms, a small study and a bathroom. All in all we have one dubble bed (180 cm) and two single beds upstairs. In our basement we have a large hobby room where we enjoy movie nights, play video games or board games or do crafts. We also have a sofa bed there.

We have excellent wifi that you are welcome to use, and if you are in to board games we have a lot to choose from!

Outside, there is a south facing patio with a nice sitting area for out door meals.

You'll find a lovely bakery and shops for groceries within comfortable walking distance and the town center is a 15 minute bus ride away. We don't have a car of our own since we manage fine with bikes and public transportation in every day life. We have two regular bikes as well as bikes suiting our children. We also have a kids bike seat and can possibly arrange for additional bikes if needed.

Anna is allergic to cats and we can therefor not change homes with cat owners. Other pets are fine!

Intervac has so far taken us to Copenhagen, Berlin (twice), Antwerp, Stockholm and Paris. We really want to keep exploring new places as well as welcoming new friends to our home.

Till alla svenska hembytare: vi är intresserade av kortare byten inom Sverige. Kom hit en helg och gå på Liseberg, utforska skärgården eller besök filmfestivalen så åker vi och upptäcker er hemort. Det enda som är viktigt är att vi inte är beroende av bil för att kunna bo i ert hem (eftersom vi inte har någon bil...)

About Our Family

In our family we enjoy pretty simple pleasures: a free saturday with good books, board games or lego constructions, a bike ride or a cup of coffe/tea with a piece of cake. When on vacation we like to experience the local area, explore what's on the shelves in the grocery stores and try out the play grounds. When we look for exchange homes we value a location that does not require us to have access to a car, but other then that, we are open to suggestions.
