  • Description


    Hello workawayers
    My name is Anja. I'm 54 years old. I live in a house in the countryside in a small village in the North of Belgium.
    I love to meet people from all over the world. Being a single woman I prefer to receive women as my guests.

    I am an open and flexible person. I have a soft personality but a strong character. A life such as many lead here seems to me an exceptional and interesting life. I have been a grandmother since September 2020. Until my grandchildren go to school, I babysit them every Friday. That means that traveling is put on hold for me for a few years.
    But by opening myself up to receive people living this wonderful life, traveling this way, I feel like I'm a little bit part of that dream life.

    Exchanging experiences and services for each other creates a wealth for both sides that we cannot pay with money. That's what I believe.

    I would like to meet women who know how to get things done in the garden and in the household.
    You are welcome for a period of 3 days to 3 weeks. One condition is that you get to Belgium without me having to sign documents for the embassy.

    Respect is very important to me. That means: no discrimination, no racism. Smokers are welcome but smoking is not allowed in the house. I'm sorry for the doglovers, it's not my thing so I can't accept dogs or other pets in the house.

    I work in two part-time jobs. I am a social assistant in a refugee center. And I have my practice as a psychotherapist to guide people who are going through a difficult period.
    In the summer it is quiet in my practice which means I can spend more time in the garden and go for a walk.

    In my spare time I like walking and painting. If you like to paint or draw, we can do this together. I can also teach you to paint if you want. But I'm sure we can learn many things from each other.
    During your stay we can cook together or learn from each other to try out new recipes.

    If you want to visit a city, that's a little bit difficult at my place. The busstation is a half hour walking from my house. For big city's you need to take the bus first and after you need to take the train.
    In a weekend I can bring you to the busstation, during the week I'm working so than you have to plan it by your own.
