About Our Family

We are both retired reverends (protestant pastors) and after our working life we are living in an apartment in Houten, centrally located in the Netherlands which makes it easier for us to visit our family and friends which live scattered around the country. We have four children and eight grandchildren. Our eldest daughter lives with her husband and sons in Groningen. Our sons are living with their families in a little village Kockengen and in Amsterdam. Our youngest daughter is living in Nijmegen with husband and two children (Intervac NL 0381 )

Lifestyle

For many years (since 1986!) we have spent our holidays - first with our children and later without them - in houses of other Intervac-families: in France, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, often in Italy, in several regions, and last years in Denmark and Germany too. We like culture, nature, the climate and the friendly people in other countries! We like to make trips and to visit old cities, museums, cultural interesting places... But also we like to drink coffee or a glass of wine on a terrace or to read a book on a balcony or terrace with a view! Where shall be our next home-exchange ?
