Something about ourselves
Herman is a recently retired University Professor who is still very active at the University. Emilie is a retired school manager, who enjoys board membership of several organizations. We did many exchanges in the past when our children were still at home. This was always a great success. We have just swapped homes again with wonderful people in France, which has once again made us very enthusiastic about this way of spending a holiday.Our eldest son works for Shell and lives in Calgary, Canada with his girlfriend. We would like to combine a visit to them with a trip to Vancouver where we would like to stay for some time. Another option is to make a stop in New York on the way to or from Canada.
