We are going to achieve our dreams.
Written for Dutch local paper Westlands post by Geraldine Mars – 2016
You turn 50 and any person would think about winding down their careers and start taking it easy! This was furthest from the minds of Mart and Marlene van Adrichem. They are starting something new, not in the Netherlands but in, France and are hoping open and set up their own “Residance.” As it has been a long-held dream that is about to come true.
Mart (57) and Marlene (54) live on the outskirts of The Hague on the edge of a village called Wateringen. Mart has had his own building business for 30 years in Wateringen and Marlene has a busy Massage practice De Cirkel also in Wateringen she was helping The sports centre ‘Quintus’ helping the 1st men’s handball team with sports massage and treatments.
In 2015 Mart was had a knee operation and received a new knee, during his revalidation was the moment that Mart started to think about the future and talk about the dream of moving to France and starting a bed and breakfast. “we have had this dream of moving to France for years and wanted a change, to open the bed and breakfast and to realise our dream, so Marlene took to the internet to look what houses were for sale”
Where one door closes in The Netherlands
another opens in France.
