Hi, I am Gerbrand, 61 years old. I live in a small fishermen's house in the harbour village Oudeschild on Texel, the Netherlands.
From March to October 2019, I am looking for people to help me with maintenance work on my boat and my house.
In return, I can serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and lots of stories. Of course there will be ample time to discover my beautiful island. I know some very special must-sees.
Please feel free to react, to see if we can get along and make an arrangement.
Cooking / shopping
Help with Computers / internet
I can show you lots of interesting places on Texel, and tell you lots of stories about me, my travels and my island.
For the boat, it is mainly steel- and woodwork and a lot of painting. For the house, It is only sanding and painting.
Dutch, English, Gerbrand, French
All basics are present. I have two spare beds on the second floor of my house
