About Our Family

We are Martijn (46), Pauline (38), Stijn (6 in september 2018) and Hugo (4 years old in june 2018). We have swapped 7 times so far and love it. We have been to Belgium, Sweden, Norway, France, Germany, Holland, and Spain. When I was a teenager I joint my parents on swapping trips through Intervac to the UK. Loved it then, love it now. We truly enjoy welcoming others in our home, discovering new people and new places.
We have a live-in au pair but she usually doesn’t joins us on the swapping trips and we plan well so she is not home.
We don’t have pets.

Lifestyle

We enjoy simple things in live, a small bike tour, a cup of coffee, having a glass of wine with friends and family, and ofcourse discovering new places. Martijn lived in the USA for a few years and Pauline in France. We lived in Amsterdam before we went to Bussum and still enjoy the city, but also the nature and peace here.
