Getting around

Our home is located in Blomsterdalen, Bergen - the second largest city in Norway with a unique combination of cultural offerings, and close to fjord and mountains . The house is located 20 minutes outside the city center (with car) and 5 minutes from the airport. Our home is 20 years, family home over 2 floors in a friendly neighbourhood. There is a litle outdoor area with seating area. 4 small bedrooms; 3 with double beds and 1 with single bed. A fully equipped charming kitchen (dishwasher). Bathroom with washer and dryer. Living room and dining area. It has a lounge sofa, leaning chair, TV and wood oven. Large dining table with place for 8 (1 children chair available). Free Parking right in front of the house. We have a new trampoline in front of the house to. We don't have a cleaner, we clean our own house before we go away, and the house we borrow before we leave. Then we expect the people we swap with to do the same. Close to Bergen center, easy access by bus, train (bybanen) or car. In the town center, you can experience Bryggen, the old wharf of Bergen, (Unescos world heritage). And you may want to take a straw along the fish marked, take the Fløibanen funicular, visit Bergen aquarium, VilVite Bergen Science Center, maybe visit one of the many museums (Norway's most famous composer Edvard Grieg’s Troldhaugen). The Fløibanen is a funicular railway in the Norwegian city of Bergen. It connects the city centre with the mountain of Fløyen, with its mountain walks and magnificent views of the city. It is one of Bergen's major tourist attractions and one of Norway's most visited attractions. Ulriksbanen is a passenger aerial tramway in Bergen. It connects the highest mountain in Bergen: Ulriken to the city, and is frequently used by tourists as well as locals. If you do not want to take the aerial tramway, you can walk up the beautiful scenery in newly constructed stairs. Or you can take the path one way and then go the other way. The Arboretum and Botanical Garden, Milde: Blondehuset Historical Garden In front of Blondehuset the historical garden with tall herbs, summerflowers and roses looks very well in the late part of the season. 5000 plant taxa from all over the World Norway's largest collection of Roses The largest Rhododendron collection in Scandinavia Heather Garden, Japanese Garden and Alpine Garden Displays of historical garden plants and traditions Accessible for disabled persons. FEEDBACK Most of the feedback I received from my exchange partners disappeared when HE got involved with GTG. The feedback is of great importance to my credibility in the exchange of housing, so I have emailed HE to try to get them back. But have little hope for that to happen. In most of the feedback it now says: exchange has not been rated yet :( These are left: Ragnhild was invited by Jorunn for 3 days on May 3, 2018 We changed house with Jorunn for a long weekend in May 2018. A nice house with short distance to the airport. Alt fungerte fint, og vi kan absolutt anbefale at bytte med Jorunn. Jana was invited by Jorunn for 3 days on March 1, 2018 We stayed at Jorunn's house for a prolonged weekend and we liked it a lot. Her house is very comfortable, modern and the cleanest I have ever seen. Bus stop is just behind the house, that was perfect. Bus comes very often, great connection to the train. She was very helpful with all information. Thank you for that. Bergen is a great city, it's worth to see. Bryggen, funicular... it's enough just walk around the city. We liked the fish soup at the market and great cafes. We enjoyed it a lot. When we lived in Sogndal we got this feedback: Lara was invited by Jorunn for 7 days on July 10, 2016 WONDERFUL WONDERFUL!!! Thank you Jorunn so much for giving us the opportunity to visit Norway. It is difficult to explain the sensations, the emotions we felt living and travelling trough Norway. Jorunn House was clean, confortable, big and with a beautiful view on a fjord. The nature that rules all around really enchanted us. Dera Jorunn, if you want to Exchange again I'll be very very pleased!let's keep in touch! lara Simon was invited by Jorunn for 6 days on March 30, 2015 We had a great exchange with Jorunn and her 2 sons in Sogndal, Norway. They were really friendly and very helpful before and during the exchange. Their house is very homely and comfortable with a lovely balcony overlooking the town and fjord and a wood burning stove. The house was spotless when we arrived and they left ours equally spotless. They left their car at Bergen Airport for us to drive the 4 hours to Sogndal, one of the most spectacular journeys we've driven, including a short ferry trip. Their house is just 10 minutes drive from a ski resort so we skiied for 4 days, went on a beautiful train journey from Flam and rib boat ride down the UNESCO Heritage Site fjord and spent the last day in Bergen. A brilliant week. Would like to go again but next time to see it in summer. Thanks Jorunn. Simon, Kate, Maddie and Josie

Member description
We are a quiet family of 3 members. Jorunn (is nurse and works every 3th weekend) and twins Jim and Pål on 21 years . We are an active family, so everyone in the family has one or more activities in their leisure time. Football , spinning , skiing, hiking is some of the things we do. Otherwise, the boys playing piano. On the photo (from 2014) is Jorunn on the highest mountain in Norway; Galdhøpiggen in Jotunheimen. You just have to experience it, it's beautiful. If you want to go to the mountain and spend the night in tent, I have a tent you can borrow. We have been a member of housing exchange since 2014, and have had 11 fantastic experiences around Europe. For summer we will travel to San Fransisco with HE and look forward to it. We have only had good experiences with home exchange and love it. When the boys go to college and are in the military, there may be others family members, or friends of Jorunn who join the tour. We will respect and treat your home as if it were our own. We will leave your home in the condition we come to it. And we expect the same for you too.
