We are a danish couple who have made many succesful exchanges. We have met a lot of wonderful people, and think a personal meeting adds a little extra to the trip. We are also a part of the programme: "Dine with the Danes", where visitors to Copenhagen, can have a dinner with us in our private home. Is a lot of fun, and we have met many great people.
Exchange does not have to be simultaneous, because we can always stay in our countryhouse, while you visit wonderful Copenhagen.

Bjarne and Marias appartment is bright and spacious. It is located in a very interesting area of Copenhagen. It is a new part of the city directly at the harbour with narrow canals and appartment buildings that give a dutch feeling to the neighbourhood.
There is very easy access to the city centre either by bus or the harbour-bus.
Within 50 minutes on foot through the green area of Amager Fælled and the trendy Islands Brygge you can also reach the city centre.
There are plenty of cafes and grocery stores right around the corner.
The view from the appartment is magnificent and the area is without noise from traffic.
It is the perfect starting point for your Copenhagen adventure.
Communication with Bjarne and Maria was swift and efficient and they are very welcoming.
We can highly recommend exchanging with them.
Dorte and Peter.
Loved these new friends. Bjarne and Maria exemplify what’s great about PLU, giving more than they receive and showing their appreciation for every kindness offered. Perfect guests! We don’t know when we’ll make it to Denmark, but seeing them and enjoying their part of the world is something to look forward to.
An absolutely perfect exchange. From start to finish the dialogue has been excellent, and we were lucky to meet Jim and Vicki several times during our stay. They had prepared various events we could attend, and we are now really looking forward to pay pack their great hospitality, when they come to our home in Copenhagen.
Their house is wonderful. Located on a hillside just above the river Naches, and overlooking the opposite hillside. We enjoyed sitting on the porch listnining to the sounds of the river.
The house has all the comfort you could wish for, and we had a great week in Naches.
Yakima is an agricultural area, and if you want fresh fruit, wineries and a lot of trails - this is a destination for you.
Thanks again for this exchange possibility.
We made new friends after a great visit with Bjarne and Maria. We really accepted this exchange because they are PLU even though we had no current plants to go to Europe. After spending time with this exceptional couple, Denmark is on our list again. They exemplify the exchangers Drew has sought for his program.
Dorte and Peters home is a great choice if you want to visit Vejle.
Do not hesitate to make an exchange if you have the possibility.
The home is in a great location. Right at the harbourfront. And in walking distance to the city center of Vejle.Since the apartment is located on the 5th floor, you have amazing views of the harbour, town and even the forest. The apartment is tasteful decorated "Scandinavian style", with a lot of great art, and the home is immaculately clean. We tried a couple of restaurants recommended by Dorte, and was not disapointed. Also a must see, is the "Fjordenhus" An iconic building just 100 meters from the front door.
Book a guided tour for the best experience.
The communication with Dorte has been excellent, and we really enjoyed our days in Vejle.
All in all a perfect exchange. Returning to our home, we could not see that there had been any visitors. It looked excactly the same as when we left for our exchange in Vejle.Hopefully we can agree a new exchange sometime in the future..
