- Ype trainingdevelopment at city government (40)
- marrije teacher primary school (38)
Hello from a sparkling Amsterdam!!
We are a Dutch family of four: Ype -39 years old- (trainingdevelopment for the city government of Amsterdam), Marrije -36 years old- (teacher in primary school). We live in Amsterdam with our two daughters Estella (15 years old) and Ivana (9 years old). We both work fulltime, but when we have time of we like to spend it with our family. We love cooking and good food. We love the city and we are fond of exploring other city's and their possibilities. We like to take familytrips to museums, sailing/taking a boat trip or just hanging out in the park with a good book while our kids are skating, swimming or playing. We are a creative family; Ype does photography and drawing. Our daughters both do mangadrawings and they love to paint. Marrije has restyled and decorated our house and all the fourniture.
August 9 — August 9, 2014 These dates are flexible
We are looking for an exchange in the period from 20 juli - 9 august 2014.
We love to hang around with good food and a lovely view.
We had the most wonderful time in Amsterdam in the beautiful and authentic home of Marrije and Ype and their girls, who made us feel at home at once, thanks to their thorough guidance, preparations and generousity. Their place is situated in the very middle of the city, where everything was easy to get and to reach, also thanks to the bikes that we could borrow. They are such a wonderful family, and made our stay so memorable, like staying over at friends. Exchange of photos by Whatsapp, and comments and tips of what to do during the week kept us in touch every day in a very nice way. Even taking care of their little cat was a plus, as we could enjoy the company of a pet for a whole week, something we can not do at home! We nearly thought we lived there ourselves, and almost wished we did! Thank you so very much!
