  • Description


    Dear travellers, my name is Geert. I used to be a primary school teacher but now I'm reconstructing my house. I'm doïng this alone for the moment. I can use a little help and some nice company. It's a nice house in nice town. You can walk right into nature from the garden. The litte but beautiful city of Dendermonde is also on a walking distance. And the trainstation is on a 10 minute walk from the house. Trains will take you to Gent, Antwerp and Brussels easily and quikly. You don't need any experience to help me. People who can paint (artisticly) are also very welcome. We can have fun: cook something nice, take a walk. You don't have to work all the time of course!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I've travelled a lot myself and I will go again (when this house is finished). I like to tell annekdotes about simple aspects of my culture (food, history, folklore...) and I always like to learn from others. I can show you around in my city. I know a lot about nature here (especially birds and plants). We can go to a bar or to see a show. It will be a nice way to see a lot of Belgian life. I also work as a travelguide.

    This is the perfect spot to explore Belgium. It's in the middle of the triangle Antwerp, Brussels and Ghent. It's also nice to go walking or biking. (I can lend you a bike.) Lots of tourist come here to bike near the Schelde. You can find some tranquility here too if you like.
