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 our lovely cat Zazi who lives 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.
We are open to exchange propositions, sorry only in Europe because of Reinier's bad lungs we cannot do longer flights anymore; no stairs please.
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
