  1. About me
    I am Monika (61) IT specialist and lecturer; I’m curious and like to travel with my bike through Europe. However, I am no wild rocker, but interested in art, theater and music. In addition, I love to dance. I can only travel when my school has holiday break, so I’m unfortunately not flexible with the dates. I have three grown children (multi-lingual) and a six-year-old grandson who all live within 50 km. Previously my youngest son looked for the cats and the house with its plants, while I was on vacation. But I find the idea of Home Exchange is interesting; I have already heard many positive things about it, and made some really successful exchanges since 2012. My residential community includes 2 cats, now 6 years. They are very nice and easy, but it is advisable not to leave any food unattended around ...
    Usually, they get fresh food once a day from the can, but it is not a problem to leave them 2-3 days to themselves, if the dry food containers and water bowls are filled. Through the cat flap, they can at any time in the house and help themselves.
    I speak German, Danish, English and French.
