They go out to sea in their own boat in most weather from a lighthouse located on a small island in the arctic part of Norway.

After the chores are out of the way, he will teach his new cook/housekeeper and handyperson how to sail. In the evening, watch the sunset, have a drink and get to know the community.

Still, you could learn a lot here about construction, boat maintenance, carpentry, electricity, welding, fibreglass, and much more.
* Come help us repair our sailing ship and learn about boat-building in Actium, Greece - Consider this as a kind of internship in boat building, say Austrian-Swiss couple Ralph and Julia, and come away with some practical skills to use on your own home or campervan.
