  • Description


    My name is Nadja (40) and together with my daughter Fleur (3), we have been traveling around South-East Asia for 8 months. We returned back home to the Netherlands in May 2019 and have already welcomed some 'work-awayers' and we absolutely love the experience!

    My husband passed away shortly after Fleur was born, while life hasn't been easy I have been determined to honor my husband’s life by making the best of ours and lead it by example for our daughter.

    The decision to take Fleur traveling was the best one I have made in a long time, it strengthened our bond and I feel much stronger for it. It also feels that I have made up for lost time with Fleur.

    I am half Dutch/half German but have lived abroad for more than 20 years, 12 of those in London. Since our travels, Fleur is also fluent in English and having 'work-awayers' with us now really helps to keep up this skill. I also speak some basic French and Spanish.

    I have taken up my studies again and could really do with some help around the house, someone to keep Fleur entertained while I can get on with things. Fleur is a fun loving little girl who will declare you her best friend within 5 minutes of meeting you. She's getting the hang of cycling and would love to show you the horses at the end of our road.

    We live in Overdinkel, a small town close to the German border, you can cycle to Germany within a few minutes. It's a quiet area yet well connected to get to Enschede or Losser. We live in a semi-detached house and you would have your own bedroom (single bed) on the first floor and would share the bathroom with us.

    I would say we are pretty easy going and like the cultural exchange as much as you do

    Please get in touch if you are interested.

    You would be immersed into the Dutch culture with a German twist being so close to the border.

    I could really need your help with looking after my daughter Fleur. Fleur is into all sorts of arts and crafts (especially play doh), likes to dance and being outdoors. Just before we left home in September 2018 she stared cycling, so I am sure she is keen to develop this skill and take her bike to the playground at the end of our street, or visit the horses on the fields behind us. Fleur is my absolute everything and our bond has strengthened so much since we have been traveling together. She is a bright little girl, really easy going, very friendly and social. She will surely declare you as her new best friend within 5 minutes of meeting you.

    We are looking for someone who is responsible and has a positive attitude towards life, with a zest for life, and has a can-do attitude!
