  • Descripción


    My name is Dick. I am a male, 65 years. I live in the beautiful town Arnhem, in the middle of the Netherlands. My house is a small and cosy house with a nice garden.
    I love to DIY, and there's always something to be done in and around the house.
    I worked as an engineer at the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat). Now I am retired.
    What people fascinates and why people do what they do interesses me so much that I started a aducation for coaching and counselling people. I did a three year course which i finniest in juni 2022 . It is a combination of NLP, T.A, emotional body works and family constellations.
    Walking in nature is a nice way to recreate. Where I live I can enjoy these walks pretty well, as I live very close to Veluwezoom, a protected nature surroundings. The centre of Arnhem can be reached easily with the typical trolleybus. It has cosy shopping streets and good pubs and restaurants. A visit to my favourite pub is one thing definitively to be done.
    The modern trainstation in Arnhem has direct connections with Amsterdam and Utrecht.

A bridge had been present at this location since the 1600’s, and German forces rebuilt it to allow movement of their troops during WW2.
