    Beschreibung

    - My house has room enough to offer you a nice place to stay and to work for a while. I think you will meet a nice person here and I hope to meet a nice person too. I like to hear about your country and culture, I can tell you about ours.
    - I am a 69 year old man, but still feeling young, doing severel things as a volunteer and for fun (as I don't have to work anymore). I like walking, biking, meeting friends, preparing meals, reading, learning languages, gardening, listening music, doing some yoga and so on. I like to do things in my own way, but I consider myself a social person. I don't smoke, eat vegetarian and organic if possible. I do speak Dutch, English, German, French and some Portuguese and Spanish.
    - Since my both sons left home I am living alone (almost, i do have a cat called Yang) in Assen, Drenthe, Netherlands (northern part). My house is situated nearby the woods and the fields around Assen, but also nearby the (center of) the city, where you can find a railwaystation, a museum, parks, a library and of course shops.
    - From Assen it is easy to go almost anywhere in the Netherlands by train. In the surroundings of Assen you can walk, bike, see dolmen and nice villages. If you like Dutch nature you can enjoy yourself here.

    I suggest to work for about 20 hours during a week. Four hours a day for example, except the weekend. (in consultation we can decide otherwise)

    I prefer to exchange services instead of money.

    What I ask from you:
    - 15 -20 hours of help a week
    - accepting and respecting houserules
    - cleaning your own room,
    - no smoking, no drugs
    - buying your own (special) drinks
    - respecting my sons and friends when here
    - some privacy in living together in the same house

    What I offer you:
    - a bedroom and a good bed
    - some privacy in living together in the same house
    - daily healthy vegetarian meals when in the house
    - free use of towels
    - free coffee and tea
    - free wifi
    - the use of a bike
    - some trips in the neighbourhood, some sightseeing together

    i prepare a warm vegetarian meal (almost) every day. So, for me it is no problem to be your cook. But, if you like, we can prepare meals together or alternately.

    - You can stay here for free, having a bedroom including good meals. If you like doing things together I can show you the surroundings of Assen, or even more. I have a car. I can lend you a bike.
    - What you can find here; natureparks, dolmen ( called hunebedden in Dutch), burial mounds, museums, old villages. When you are interested in (Dutch) archeology and the history of this area there are many locations to visit and to see.
    - In the city of Assen you will find all kinds of shops, a theater and a cinema, a museum, parks, a recreationcenter, sportschools and so on.
    - The city of Groningen is nearby (by train, bus and even by bike if you want to) and offers almost everything you expect from a 'big town'.

    - The northern part of the Netherlands is an interesting area to explore (depending on what you like or prefer of course). Drenthe is known as a pittoresque and rather quiet part of the Netherlands because of its nature, history and archeology.
    - Drenthe is best explored walking or biking. And it is very easy to find your way because there is quite a smart system along the roads to make different tours. There are no hills here to climb.
    - You can visit several villages, cities, natureparks and dolmen. And you can even visit the northern islands. On a distance of about 70-100 km you 'll find the 'waddeneilanden', nice islands to go to by boat for a daytrip or longer. In Friesland (distance from 50-100 km) you will find many lakes and quite a few historical cities.
    - You can even visit the borderarea of Germany. The historical city of Groningen is nearby Assen (25 km, by bus or by train).
    - If you like to see 'Holland' (the old Dutch cities for example), you can get there by train within two or three hours. To be honest: travelling by train is not that cheap, but i can help you to find some special offers for interesting daytrips for lower costs.

    If you would like to have more information, please let me know.
