Beuningen (Gld), the Netherlands
Joined January 2019
Children are 9, 13 and 15 years of age.
We have 2 cats who will be staying home.
we are a family of 5, Folke and Hilde and 3 children, and have had our 1st, 2nd and 3rd exchange last year and we loved it. We hope many more will follow.
Our 2 cats are used to little children. They stay indoors (sleeping) most of the time, but when we are home they stroll the neighbourhood. When possible we like to leave them at home.
Our youngest attends the Montessori primary school and the oldest two attend a 'vrijeschool' (Waldorf school). This education uses many aspects of culture but most of all makes our children happy and open-minded.
Due to work, we came to this area of the country. It seems we will never leave again, although relatives are not close by. Lots to explore for all ages and interests.
We are sporty and creative and make things, for hobby or to make life easier. We explore. Lots of trails to walk or bicycle and the terrain is very diverse. Lots of museums that are child-friendly. Several castles from centuries ago.
We are proud owners of a Ford Transit van from 1982, which makes noisy road trips more adventures.
We are curious who likes to experience the Netherlands and hope we will get the chance to discover new places, preferably within 8 hours drive from our place.
You can communicate with us in Dutch, English and German. French will be a struggle, so Google translate is our friend.
