OSLO

Because of national travelrestrictions due to the Coronavirus situation, we can only exchange within Norway this summer.

We are small family with 2 adults aged 47 and 51, a daughter aged 12 (born Dec 2007) and a boy born Oct 2015. We all love to travel and have done more than 30 succesfull homeexchanges so far (Paris twice, Nice, Sarasota -Florida, Brussel,Tilburg in The Netherlands, Copenhagen twice, Krakow twice, Barcelona, Gothenburg, Madrid, L'Escala (Spain), Vasterås (Sweden), Stjernsund (Sweden), Bristol, Sardinia, Amsterdam, Leuven, Viborg (Denmark), Halmstad (Sweden), Rennes (France), Reykjavik, Carlow (Ireland) and Donostia San Sebastian in Spain.

We have also had the pleasure in accomodating exchangers from California (twice), Montreal, Melbourne, Berlin and Spain.

Our home is a semidetached house (105 m2) in a small- house area in the southeastern Oslo - 12 km from the city centre. It's easy access to downtown Oslo - express buses or surburban trains run every 15 min at daytime (2 min walk from our house). A small supermarket is also a 2 min walk from the house. Green areas and playgrounds are within the area. Only a 20 min walk to the beach.
A Toyota Avensis stationwagon may be part of the exchange in summermonths. We prefer carexchange when going to rural places - or just anywhere which is not in the middle of a big city where parking opportunities are limited.

Oslo has lots to offer both summer and wintertime. See www.visitoslo.no for information & inspiration. In wintertime you can go alpine skiing within the citylimits (www.oslovinterpark.no) and there are miles and miles of crosscountry opportunities in the areas surrounding the cityarea. January 2020 they opened a brand new all-year-open indoor skiing arena (alpin and crosscountry) app. 25 min drive from our house - one of the biggest in the world www.snooslo.no
