Welcome to Düsseldorf the capital of North Rhine Westphalia
Mirko and I are parents of a male cat (Franz 11), a daughter and two boys. Mirko also has an older son (Fyn15) and daughter (Zoe17) who often join us for the holidays. We love skiing (!!!) as well as watersports (specially the kids) and exploring, discovering local beauty spots and great places to eat. We are very easy going, open people, always delighted to meet new friends and eager to learn new things.
...as well as experiencing other cultures, people and food!
Mini and Mirko's home was really lovely, so warm and inviting. They couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Having all the bikes at our disposal was great. We were so close to the Rhine and all the cycle tracks which ran along it to the city centre and the Old Town, Kaiserwerth. In fact we cycled everywhere we went which really made the holiday for us. The whole area had a really rural feel to it despite the proximity to the airport and the city. Really relaxing holiday. Mini had so much information available to us that we had very little research to do except chose from her folder of information. I would recommend this home to anyone.
From Athenry we explored CO Galway and were fascinated by the beauty of its nature and the friendliness of its people. The Mayocks' home invites to have a wonderful family time or to just relax and enjoy the solitude, ease and comfort. Not only the kids enjoyed all the paying equipment to be used on the courtyard -we had a great time! Thanks again for making this so easy and having such a positive first home exchange experience!
A very nice swap ! Mini gave us lots of information about the region. Their house is very spacious and beautiful. Frank the cat is very friendly !
Alix and her family have been excellent guests! Our home was left perfectly and also Franz our cat seemed very relaxed and happy having had their company.
