I am a Belgian. Together with my dutch husband I live in the lively city centre of Amsterdam.
My husband and I love to travel. Since my parents live in Helsinki (FINL), my sister has studied and since then stayed in Edinburgh (SCOTL), and my younger brother still lives in Leuven (BE) we travel at least once a month. When we travel we like to stay in comfy homes rather than in a hotel. For us that was one of the reasons to check out AirBnB.
Besides travelling, my husband and I also love live music, dancing and good food!
For me food is good when it is home made with fresh ingredients, so I love going to the market on Saturday @Noordermarkt and Lindengracht. It is a lively market, just around the corner from our house, that sells nearly everything, think of fruit, vegetables, fresh herbs, fish, cheese, and many other amazing products.
Amsterdam is a capital city but in our neighbourhood everything is small scale. Small theatres, lively bars in hidden corners and shops where the vendor actually knows your name. Living in the Jordaan is like living in a village in the centre of town!
Our neighbours are relaxed people, who love to chat when they run into you and who enjoy all good things in life. I love hanging out in the litlle streets around our house, seeying a movie at a local theatre (the movies) or enjoying a piano concert (pianola).
I`d love to open my house to other couples who pick Amsterdam for a spring or summer get away. I love having friends over and I see AirBnB as a way to meet people from all over the world and treat them to a perfect romantic get away in the best part of Amsterdam.
