Hi, I am Gerbrand, 63 years old. I live in a small fishermen's house in the harbour village Oudeschild on the island Texel, the Netherlands.
In the past years, I have hosted many Workawayers and Couchsurfers. For my guests, the stay on Texel was a great experience, meeting the rich nature and interesting culture. For me, every time was an experience that broadened my world, and filled my heart with sympathy. Some of my guests became close friends.
I am looking for people to help me with maintenance work on my boat and my house. There are always useful things to do. Besides that, my dog Sky really loves Workawayers!
In return, I can serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, two comfortable beds and lots of stories. Of course there will be ample time to discover my beautiful island. I know some very special must-sees.
Please feel free to react, to see if we can get along and set up a plan to build memories.
Looking forward to your message,

I can show you lots of interesting places on Texel, and tell you lots of stories about me, my travels and my island.
For the boat, it is mainly steel- and woodwork and a lot of painting. For the house, It is only sanding and painting.
