Bergen, The Netherlands
Joined January 2019
We are Marlijn and Reinier, an energetic 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 our lovely cat Zazi who lives in the house and garden (catflap).
February 2015 we started exchanging on another platform and since we swapt and swapt... a live 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, cd's and dvd's in Dutch, English and French in our house.
We are open to exchange propositions, mainly in Europe because of Reinier's health; no stairs if possible. In PLU we hope to find what we lost in our former platform; sharing, trust, generosity, respect, communication, equality, cooperation, honesty, hospitality, friendship and flexibility.
As we no longer have children at home our house is not equipped for their needs and we prefer to exchange with adult couples only.
We speak English, French and Dutch
