Something about ourselves
We are a Dutch family of 5; three children: a girl of 15, and two boys of 12 and 10. Dirk works as a HR professional in Zurich sinds 2007, Lydia works from home as a translator/editor. We have never before exchanged homes but would like to try, since we have heard positive stories about these exchanges. Our boys are asthmatic but fortunately have no allergies, so we do not smoke but do own a dog (4 yr old Frisian Stabyhoun).
