Welcome to working guest´s world!
I am sitting in the train connecting Oslo and Roros and remember my family and friends in northen Norway, witch I left yesterday and I still cannot believe it. I can´t really imagine I will not go
to pig house every morning, I will not go to feed sheeps, I will not see beautiful blue ocean, snowy peaks and sun, whitch never sets. I will miss everything!
I spent nearly half year on Marisletta gard, small farm near big city- Tromso. I came
on begining of January, it was polar night and it was quite big shock for me- I am from Czech republick, from Prague and I was student before I came here. And then, I had to learn so much new things and I had to work on the farm. It wasn´t easy on begining,
of course, but then I fall in love with beautiful nature, polar lights, animals and my new norwegian family. And I wasn´t alone- there was another working guest with me- Lea from Germany (that´s she, who I am going to visit in Roros!),
we worked together, made lot of trips, snowboarding, skiing, shoping and enjoyed fun. It was very nice time! We became „Big farmers“, when our family went to holiday to Grant Canaria and we were two weeks at home alone!
I liked work,
it was so big experience for me- for girl from big city and I lernt so many new things- feed pigs, sheeps and horses, help with borning piglets and lambs, driving tractor, work with young horses, help with carpenting in new stabel and much more what is nessesery
to do at a farm. In my free time I loved go hiking, cycling, skiing, horseriding or go to the city.
Winter was long and we were looking forward to the spring. It came on begining of May and it was beautiful! Sun was up all day and night, never
set! Amazing! We were going to many trips watch midnight sun and going to night hiking, it was so perfect! Absolutely different between dark, cold winter!
My new adoptive family was always very nice and polite to me. I felt like I am fit there. I had
two little sisters- Mie and Siss, we were playing and laughing together, baking cakes or watching tv, June was like my big friend and half mum, we worked with horses together, made a trips and enjoyed so much fun! Anders was the best workmate I ever had, he
was smiling all the time, and I was always sure I could ask him about everything and he will help me and make some joke. They always took me to family meeting or visiting friends, I felt like real part of family! I will miss them so much.
I am at home again and I feel a bit strange. There is real night, no pigs or sheeps and no ocean. I miss my room, my norweigan friends and I am sad. I met my old friends, it´s nice to see them after half year, but I would like to go back to Norway!
See the most beautiful landscape I ever saw and eat diner with my norweigan family!
