    Hi,
    Who will be joining me in evening and weekend sailing trips on the Wadden Sea this summer? In between, there is a cosy house to live in, lots of things to do, a lovely dog and a beautiful island to explore. My sailing plans ; ask me for my website

    I am Gerbrand, 64 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 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 must-sees you will not find in the Lonely Planet ;-)
    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,
    Gerbrand
