  • Description


    Our family consists of me and my 6 yr young daughter.
    I am a positive minded person, who enjoys life and all it has to offer especially spending time with my daughter, my close friends and family. I have a passion for traveling, exploring the world and other cultures, music and dancing for fun. I live a healthy vegan lifestyle, on a daily basis I workout, meditate and practice yoga. Despite the pleasure I find in spending time with others, I value spending time alone by myself on a regular basis. I'm focused on self-discovery and personal growth.
    I have a full time job, own a business and do some occasional voluntary work.
    Workaway offers a beautiful way to share our home and all our city has to offer, meet people, have interesting encounters, and to receive some help on things that I want to do, but lack time to do it with full attention.

    Living with me and my daughter would offer you a warm and welcoming place to stay, which could show you about Dutch (small) family life. I cannot offer a full fridge or all the meals and snacks per day. The diner you would do grocery shopping for and cook for us, we can of course enjoy together and I will provide for.
    I offer a private room to stay, with use of internet. Shared spaces are the shower, kitchen and garden.

    It would be great if you could cook for me and my daughter (tasty, healthy, vegan food). After work, around 17:30-18:00 I sometimes lack energy to cook :$

    My main project now is painting the house indoors. Walls, wooden door- and window frames.

    Another project I have is arranging my attic. I have a big mess and I need to get it out of my house (after some proper selection by myself of what should stay and what should go).

    Our garden needs to be taken care of. It involves taking out weed, some pruning and cleaning the tiles and garden furniture which have become a bit green after autumn and winter weather.

    Other things I could use some help with is daily general housekeeping like doing the laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning.

  • Accommodation


    I live in a bright, clean and child friendly house at just 5 minutes walk from train station Groningen North, near green park and supermarket @200 mtrs, University and Zernike Campus at less then 2km. Nice back yard, also a small front yard. Parking in the street.
    The room you will use is a single bed bedroom and u can make use of the shared bathroom with shower and toilet, the open kitchen with dining area (the living room is connected to the kitchen but I prefer leaving that an exclusive space for me and my daughter), and the backyard/ garden. The backyard is big enough to enjoy some sun and from early in the morning you can enjoy your outdoor breakfast in the sun in spring and summer.
    You have access to my wireless internet. You can make use of our washing machine. I have a dish washer.

    What else ...

    Perfect location for discovering the city of Groningen, but also to travel from the Central Station by train or bus to other cities across Netherlands and even Germany.
    I like to discover new cultures and people, also I like to tell about my country and culture.
