  • Description


    Room immediately available!
    Hi dear workaway, my name is Marijke and I recently moved to the city of Sint-Niklaas, located between Ghent and Antwerp. I work as a translator (currently on sick leave), I'm 47 years old. I am divorced (since August 2017) but live together with a new partner called Wim, 47 years old. He is an independant industrial engineer. We got married November 30th 2018!

    I have a 20 year old daughter Joline from my first marriage who studies in Ghent to become a nurse and lives in Ghent as well. We live in a semi-detached house with a large terrace and a small garden. Public transport (bus) is right across the street.

    We would like to welcome a workaway (aged between 18 and 25), preferably for 1 month or even longer. Due to knee joint transplants in the past, I also need help with cooking, general cleaning, grocery shopping, , ...). So we're especially looking for someone who is more or less skilled in those tasks.

    Our guest can learn about our culture, participate in daily life in Sint-Niklaas, visit sights during the weekends, have fun with the family and the domestic animals we own. She/he can learn our language, or one of the languages we speak and we could learn from the guest. It would be great to have a nice and helpful person staying with us! Looking forward to meeting you!!!!

    Marijke, Wim and Joline
