WE ARE BOTH seniors after 37 years of service in the Air Force. We started a company called Lill-Karin’s food and writing room and which is the basis for Daniel’s house in Skarsvåg. Our background in the Armed Forces can be divided into two. One domestic and one abroad. Abroad, both have served in Italy and Afghanistan. Lill-Karin has been an observer in the Middle East and has also worked at the UN headquarters in New York for two years. For the last 4 years before retirement, Espen has been Norway’s defense attaché in Turkey. Domestically, we have served on Andøya, Bodø, Stavern, Oslo, Kjevik and Honningsvåg.
We have long had a dream of starting something of our own in tourism and food. Here in Skarsvåg we bought the house of grandfather Daniel in 2005. We have refurbished it from top to toe, as well as demolished the old barn and built a new one called Daniel’s house. We want to let people meet in our restaurant around a good meal or a glass of wine. Telling stories and making friends is important to us.
