Bergen, The Netherlands
Member Since January 2019
We are Marlijn and Reinier, a couple in our sixties, positive thinkers. Reinier is retired (financial manager in cultural institutions like theaters), Marlijn is a visual artist / filmmaker. We have 2 adult sons living elsewhere, and 2 lovely cats (brother and sister) who live in the house (not in the sleeping rooms) and garden (catflap).
February 2015 we started exchanging on another platform and since we swapt and swapt... a life changing experience. Best way to see another country is to live there some time in 'a real house' in stead of a holiday resort, meeting interesting people, making new friends. Always curious to broaden our horizon!
We are interested in art, fashion design, history, music, literature, cooking and nature. On these subjects you will find books in Dutch, English and French in our house.
PLEASE READ THIS At the moment our exchanging future is very insecure...because of Reinier's bad lungs and very weak health.
As we no longer have children at home our house is not equipped for their needs and we prefer to exchange with other couples only.
We speak English, French, a bit of Spanish and German and of course Dutch
