We are open for all kinds of swaps in different periods during the weekends or holidays. Please ask for more information! At this moment we would like to travel to Norway (near Oslo), Sweden (South) or Denmark. Otherwise we like to change in The Netherlands if there are strict rules again. Still it also depends of the government and Covid.

In our region there are lots of flowers to see in the countryside. Keukenhof is the international and independent showcase for the Dutch floricultural sector, with a special emphasis on flower bulbs.

In more than 20 flower shows, 500 flower growers present an enormous variety of cut flowers and pot plants.
We live in a nice small town called Sassenheim (municipality Teylingen) in the region of the flowerfields, the beach, the lakes (Kagerplassen) and near the four biggest places of the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Den Haag, Rotterdam en Utrecht).
