Hi, I love having guests over and try to make you feel like you live in Amsterdam on a special location overlooking the water.
I am 64 and do not work any more on a job, but I used to work as a public servant for the city. I live on a houseboat which I like very much especially in the Jordaan, which is like a village in the city. Living on a boat gives me a special feeling of freedom, space and view with my feet more or less in the water looking at the waterbirds and the boats passing by. I have a lovely dog, called Pommetje, a small labradoodle, born in Florida in 2009. In summer when the weather is fine I go boating through the canals which gives a different view of Amsterdam. Sometimes, walking the dog we go to the beach in Zandvoort, only 30 kms from Amsterdam. During summer I like to hire a larger boat and go boating in Friesland the lakeside part of Holland or on Canals in France.
