Nothing really set, it depends on you and your tourist project in Fribourg... Up to three nights would never be a problem, and that's about the time you need to do all the sights in the area. If you want to stay more, please explain me why, and if it's a good reason I'll try to convince my wife ;)

A guided tour, A dinner.

A comfortable couch with duvet and sheets of course, plus a tour of the area if I have the time. If I'm too busy to show you around, I can tell you where to go.

I can offer my hosts:

I can teach you various stuffs about science and engineering, teach you a language if you want to, just ask for what you want and I'll find something interesting for you to know. I really love to teach what I know - sometimes it can be boring, so beware ! ;)

The train station. I'll meet you there, I live 5 min away by foot.

House Rules:
No drugs.

Nothing too fancy: no drugs, no alcohol excess, smoke outside. Do not bring unknown people in my place ;)
