    Program look under, read all well if interested !!

    Hello,

    I'm traveling by inland river barge (boat) through Europe, especially Holland, Belgium and France. The barge is an original Dutch built péniche and made for the old French channels. I still transport sometimes cargo and I am the third generation of a shipper family from both sides of my parents. I live and work alone on the barge sometimes accompanied by my girlfriend and daughter.

    There is a simple separate -little- room for guests in the front of the barge which is not suite. (no sanitaire, but there is a chemical toilet and lavabo) Also a heating system, fridge/freezer and micro-wave. I live on the back of the barge in the skippers logement.

    The tasks to do depends on the person, cleaning, housekeeping, shopping and preparing meals? ? ? And serving the aperitif of the skipper of course at 18h00 exactly..LOL.

    My intention is to make contact with other people and have an exchange of cultures.

    Kind regards,

    William

    Plans for 2021 :

    *** Right no I'm French - near Paris working on the boats, in (mid) JUIN I will go back to Netherlands. About 7 JULY back to French for some days.

    The barge is actually mooring up in town Geertruidenberg (Netherlands, near city Breda) but I will move the barge again in JUIN to Rotterdam. Geertruidenberg is a little but nice old Dutch town. City Breda is close end we have the beautiful natural parc "de Biesbosch" very close. :-).

    With periodes I go also by car to French for maintenance on the boats mooring up on different places in French. My pleasure boats are mooring up 20 km south of Paris on river Seine, Marne and Bourgogne.

    Notes :

    * Plans can suddenly completely change !!!!!!!! In fact plans change every day....So don't ask my what go happen in future : I really don't know (however I always can explain how to come/travel to the boat and I will pay the local ticket). One thing is sure : There happen always something ! It can be everywhere in the city, town, village or countryside...in the Netherlands, Belgium or French.

    * After 30 years traveling and transport on the barge I set up a second activity : I buy boats in Holland and sell the boats in French. It is interesting also, I see a lot of nice places and different people. The tasks for the "Workawayer" are a bit the same. This is the best way of the skippers-life of the '80 : Time to visit, meet nice people and profit of life.

    * For the question "minimal stay for Workawayers"...complicated to explain : If it fit really well between us a long stay is possible (this will be happen in a mix of countries NL, BE, FR) on the barge and/or pleasure boats. But shorter stays is also possible. Feel free to contact my for short stays, sometimes I can use a Workawayer immediately to move a boat, but this will be always last-minute.

    * Sometimes "Workers" don't show up on last moment so....feel free to contact my if available on last moment.

    The tasks to do depends on the person but cleaning (boats), housekeeping and shopping. For good engineers/sailors there are maintenance projects, in this case no house chores to do.

    Alojamiento

    There is a simple separate -little- room for guests in the front of the barge which is not suite. (no sanitaire, but there is a chemical toilet and lavabo) Also a heating system, fridge/freezer and micro-wave. (the situation on the pleasure boats is a bit the same as on the barge between very good up to very basic, it depends of the boat). Note: From Mars 2021 there will be a WC and shower also in the "Worker-room" but sometimes we are on pleasure boats and you have to accept more basic conditions.
