We have been married since 1980, and have raised 3 well grounded children who are adults now and live elsewhere in New Zealand. Mariet is a part-time practicing midwife and Jan has been involved in the Arts (art dealer and gallery owner), however is now semi-retired. We enjoy good conversation, world music and the arts. We are immigrants to New Zealand coming from the Netherlands, since 1987. We both have traveled extensively and we still travel whenever we can. The adventure of going to new places and meeting people from different countries has enriched our lives and still does! We have recently joined the world of Airbnb and look forward hosting and meeting guest. Welcome to our home!
