gesine und thorsten
Joined March 2019
Thorsten, 63 is a retired business man and Gesine,59, is the founder of Yayasan Cipta Mandiri - Education for underprivilegded children in Indonesia, Bogor. (www.ciptamandiri.net) which I still care for. Our adult children and their families live in Hamburg. We like to travel together or they might use the homeexchange opportunities too. Most of the last 40 years we lived in Indonesia and Thailand. We do love long travels like now (3 homeexchanges in South Africa) but we also look for interesting City trips in Europe. We became good friends with some homeexchange partners during the years.
We are a retired German expat couple enjoying living in Asia for more than 25 years. We actually have 2 homes : Hamburg and Bali. We love to travel, either the 2 of us or our son and family or daughter and family join. We are expereienced exchangers for more than 10 years and we love the concept of exchange. The new concept of homeexchange.com does not suit our idea of exchanges (baloons, points and other set-up).
For the time being we are NOT looking for exchanges with Australia or America. Otherwise we are open for proposals.
Our spacious propperty of 6000qm in Bali is paradise. Vila Lila Cita consists of a few beautiful bungalows in the lush, well maintained garden. Situated in a real balinese village we are still close to Ubud and Canggu/Seminyak area.
