A few years ago we were member of Home Exchange, thanks to this platform we made 4 simultaneous exchanges with other families.
And now we want to pick up this thread again...
The children are now more independent. They go to secondary school in Ghent. I myself work as a project manager, freelance, at neonsign companies. My wife helps company staff-groups and individuals to work better together.
We live in a quiet neigborhood 15 minutes drive from Ghent and 50 minutes from the Belgian coast.

Why is beer associated with Belgium? Belgian beer is listed as a World Heritage property.
Nearly 1500 different beers are produced in the country using different fermentation methods: from Pils, Abbey beers, Seasons beers, Trappist beers, Old Flemish browns, to the most elaborate lambic and Gueuzes, Belgium has a wealth of styles and a rare creativity.
Martha beer is available from our neighbor who is the brewmaster of this brewery.
Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home
The old city of Ghent (in Flemish Gent; in French Gand) is a picturesque muddle of alleyways rimmed by quaint steeple-roofed buildings running along pretty canals. Along with Bruges, Ghent is Belgium's star architectural tourist attraction, but unlike Bruges, it comes without the tour bus hordes.
