    Program look under, read all if interested !!


    I'm traveling by inland river barge (boat) through Europe, especially France, Belgium and Holland. The barge is an original Dutch built péniche and made for the old French channels. I still transport cargo and I am the third generation of a shipper family from both sides of my parents. I live and work alone on the barge sometimes accompanied by my girlfriend and daughter.

    There is a simple separate -little- room for guests in the front of the barge which is not suite. (no sanitaire, but there is a chemical toilet and lavabo) Also a heating system, fridge/freezer and micro-wave. I live on the back of the barge in the skippers logement.

    The work to do depends on the person, maybe some cleaning, housekeeping work, shopping and cooking ? ? ? And serving the aperitif of the skipper of course at 18h00 exactly..LOL.

    My intention is to make contact with other people and have an exchange of cultures.

    Kind regards,


    Plans for 2019 :

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️Actually-right no (10 november) I just finishing buy a boat in NL. From 10 - to 17 november (??) in Rotterdam NL on the barge. After (?? 20 november to about 10 december ??) I wil go by car to French (100 km around Paris) to make the pleasure-boats ready for Winter.

    ** From 12 december to the end of the year I will be on the barge in Rotterdam. More a job for workawayers who want discover the Netherlands... Netherlands is little (so all close) and very good public transport so possibilities to discover easily by train. If you make a good job there will be free-train-cart available.

    General :

    ** I have to find and buy several pleasure-boats, do maintenance, cleaning and make the ready to navigate to French. So this past in Holland / Netherlands !!

    *️️️️*️️️️ Also I have to make à trip by car to Loire-Bassin (Nantes, Anger etc) pour discover. Also I have to go to GB to discover possibilities for to sell boats...and of cours have a good time to discover this beautiful country.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ So I travel –offen by car- to keep this 7 boats in NL (barge and buy boats), near Paris and Bourgogne (maintenance, clean and sell boats). Sometimes I bring a pleasure boat from NL to FR in this case I need help also.

    Notes :

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️Plans can suddenly completely change !!!!!!!! In fact plans change every day....So don't ask my what go happen in future : I really don't know (however I always can explain how to come/travel to the boat and I will pay the local ticket). One thing is sure : There happen always something ! It can be everywhere city, village or countryside...in the Netherlands, Belgium or French.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ After 30 years traveling on the barge I set up a new trade : I buy boats in Holland and sale the boats in French. It is interesting also, I see a lot of nice places and different people. The tasks for the "Workawayer" are a bit the same.

    ** For the question "minimal stay for workawayers"...complicated to explain : If it fit really well between us very long stay is possible and I prefer (this will be a mix in countries NL, BE, FR and UK) on the barge and pleasure boats. But shorter stays is of cours also possible. Feel free to contact my for short stays, sometimes I can use a workawayer to move a boat, but his will be always last-minute.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Sometimes workawayers don't show up on last moment so....feel free to contact my if available on last moment.
