Just half way, cause we have moved, however, we’re going to look for something else. Why? Well… We started to feel desperate so we answered also room offers. We found one in Ishøj from polonia.dk website. The owner agreed for a dog and we went to see the place.
The room wasn’t big, but we could fit our staff. The kitchen, bathrooms and living room were very nicely decorated. The owner is living in a house, so she uses them as well. There were few more rooms and few more people in the house. We were told it’s not the only house she has for rent. During the conversation, she reminded herself that one room in Greve will be free from December. From there Jurek would have 10 minutes cycling to work, I would have 5 minutes walking to the train. We drove to see it.
This room was much smaller, the kitchen, bathrooms and living room not so nice as in Ishøj. On the other side, it was better situated (from the previous one there were several kilometers to the train) and without constant control of the owner. I mean, she seemed to be a nice person but we predicted she spends more of the time in the kitchen and comments on everything e.g. cooking. We decided to take the room in Greve, despite 18 people living in the house… There were two kitchens and two bathrooms and most of the tenants were guys working all the days, so it shouldn’t be that bad.
The moving day arrived. We were packing and cleaning from the morning. Finally, we drove loaded to the roof Transporter to Greve. We entered the house and… surprise! Few days before a guy with an allergy for dog hair has moved in. The solutions would be to keep the dog 24h (except the walks) in this tiny room, keep the guy in his room (except going to work) or find another room. The choice was simple. We called the owner. She was talking to one guy from another house in Greve the previous day. He wished to swap rooms with us. So we went there to meet him.
The room was bigger, the house nicer, with a terrace and situated 3 minutes walk from the sea. Just 32 inhabitants worried me a little… Problem solved itself when the boy called his girlfriend who didn’t want to move! Well, they should discuss it earlier…
We drove back. The guy with allergy gave us a phone number to Polish guy, who has a room available immediately, cause somebody has suddenly resigned. “Allergy guy” would take it himself, but the deposit was too high for him. Worth a try. The owner agreed for a dog and we took a room without even seeing it.
In the evening we arrived in Albertslund. The apartment was quite large, especially the living room and the kitchen, however… our room has just 7m²! The second identical room is empty now and there are three guys in the third, bigger one. They are working for the landlord in renovation business and they are leaving before Christmas.
We brought our stuff. We filled the empty room and half of the living room. We waited with unpacking til the next day. This one has already depleted our energy reserves…
