Kitty is married with Werend and active as a teacher on an educational institute for agri-business. Werend is a journalist. They have four children, who have left the house to build up an own life. Fond of travelling and always curious to the culture of people in other countries we know that is not always simple to find your way. But regardless if we were in Poland, Denmark, Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, South Africa, Mozambique and many other countries we have always enjoyed the great gift of hospitality and helpfulness. We like to give it back by trying to offer you more than just the tariffs are requesting.
Kitty studied history and specialized in the late medieval development from villages to cities. As Utrecht is built on a Roman castellum at the bank of the river Rhine our city is a fine example of this!
Welcoming you in Utrecht a smart saying would be: meet us locals live. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. We speak Nederlands, English, français, Deutsch.
