    Good Host
  • 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 lead a classic life myself because circumstances made it that way. Because of this, I have my responsibilities that I don't want to give up. But by opening myself up to receive people living this wonderful life, 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.

    Respect is very important to me. That means: no discrimination, no racism. Smokers are welcome but smoking is not allowed in the house.

    Since I have only just lived on my own, I still have to get used to all the tasks that have to be done. I don't have any big projects, maybe later. It only concerns small jobs in the garden or at home.

    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.
