About Our Family

We are a family of three people; Janneke (55), Lennard (21) who lives actually in Delft (almost finished Mechanical engineering) and Ireen (18) who is looking for a room in Amsterdam (she studies Law in Society).
We love to do both some shorter exchanges (in the Netherlands ,Belgium, Germany, Luxemburg, Switzerland or the north of France) during the year and exchanges for about 2-3 weeks during the summer. This year we are looking for a place where it is possible do go diving or snorkeling, so maybe Indonesia or Thailand.

Lifestyle

We like to vist beautiful places in cities and in nature, like to meet new people and also to have some days to relax after our sightseeing.
