Hi there, I am Tanja, 26 years old and from Switzerland. I am looking for a cozy room with nice flatmates in Utrecht. The room should be furnished and available before the 27-02-2017 until the end of June 2017/beginning of July 2017 or longer.

I am a nice, calm, clean and funny person who likes to have good talks, one or two glasses of wine, some Netflix sessions or a nice cooked meal together with my flatmates. I am also a very clean person and like it when it is tidy. I am not a big fan of house parties (in my own four walls) but I like having friends over for some drinks now and then.

I have already lived in Utrecht one year ago for 5 months, therefore I know everything and I already have a circle of friends here. Now I am coming back for work. I could spent up to 500 Euro for a room. Next to English I speak Swiss German, German and French. I am motivated and eager to learn Dutch while I am here.

Would be lovely to hear from you. Send me a PM if you know something. Thanks a lot! Tanja

Free Arriva Train & Bus Tour Around Limburg ! (CS-event)

December 18, 2016, 9:15am - December 18, 2016, 3:30pm

FREE Arriva Train & Bus Tour Around Limburg ! Voor Nederlands, zie onder Engels. ENGLISH Please also sign up on CS! What is going on? Arriva is the new public bus & train company in Limburg starting on 11 December. On Sunday 11, 18 and 25 December Arriva lets everybody travel for FREE on all their buses and trains in Limburg. What are we going to do? Let's make a full day tour around Limburg by FREE bus & train on 18 December! Starting at 10 AM and ending at 22 PM in Maastricht, but you can join us in other places that we pass by along the way. Just board the bus or train according to the schedule (see below). Meeting up in Maastricht We are meeting up in Maastricht at the coffee tables in HEMA inside the central trainstation from 09.15 until 10 in the morning. Be here to join us! At 10:08 we will leave with our first bus, line 57 to Gulpen, through the southernmost villages of the Netherlands: Noorbeek and Epen. The schedule With eleven buses and trains, we would travel around Limburg, hitting its southern- and northernmost places. We change buses and trains in the following places: Maastricht, Gulpen, Heerlen, Sittard, Echt, Roermond, Weert, Venlo, Mook, Venlo and Roermond. Please take a look at the full schedule for all the details! Keep in mind that, because of taking so many different buses and trains, we may easily somewhere miss a connection. This means that we basically simply lose one hour on the schedule. Place to sleep I can host you at my place in Maastricht before and after this day. PM me if you would like to. So we do not need a ticket? Actually, you need a ticket, but the ticket costs 00,00 euros. The ticket, that you have to print out, you can download here: No printer, no worrr, I bring extra tickets. What to bring? Bring something to eat and drink. We will spend really a lot of time in the buses and trains, eight hours in total. Only in Mook, the northernmost point of Limburg, we will for sure have a bit of time to visit the supermarket and a snackbar. For free to Maastricht Of course you can travel also for free by bus and train to Maastricht with this ticket, for the meetup. It is also valid on the Arriva-train Nijmegen-Venlo and the Arriva-buses from Aachen, Geilenkirchen and Maaseik. However, the ticket is only NOT valid on the NS intercity train (Amsterdam-Maastricht). Cheap to Maastricht from far outside Limburg: NS groupsretour Do you want to join, but need to come from far outside Limburg? For 7 euro you can travel return by train to Maastricht with a NS groupsretour ticket. PM me to make a reservation with me and follow my instructions. You need a printer to print this 7 euro ticket. From Aachen? The free tickets are also valid on the Arriva (former Veolia) buses from Aachen to Maastricht (line 350, former line 50) (by which you can join us in Gulpen, with bus 55 @ 11.10) and to Heerlen (line 44) (by which you can join us in Heerlen, with bus 40 @ 11.42). Contact During the day you can contact me only by SMS or phone. No apps, no Facebook, no smoke signals. My number: +31621488856 NEDERLANDS Gratis ARRIVA Trein & Bus Toer door Limburg ! Wat gebeurt er? Arriva volgt Veolia op en gaat vanaf 11 december bijna al het bus- en treinvervoer in Limburg verzorgen. Daarom mogen reizigers op zondag 11, 18 en 25 december gratis met alle bussen en treinen van Arriva in Limburg mee. Wat gaan we doen? We maken een GRATIS toer rond Limburg met bus en trein op 18 december! We beginnen om 10 uur 's morgens in Maastricht en eindigen ook om 10 uur 's avonds in Maastricht. Je kan je onderweg bij ons aansluiten. Stap gewoon in de bus of trein in het schema (zie hierna) en zoek ons op. Verzamelen in Maastricht We verzamelen van 09.15 tot 10 uur 's morgens bij de koffietafels in de HEMA op het station in Maastricht. Sluit je aan! Om 10:08 nemen we de eerste bus, lijn 57 naar Gulpen, door de zuidelijkste dorpen van Nederland: Noorbeek en Epen. Het schema We hebben elf bussen en treinen op het schema en komen door de zuidelijkste en noordelijkste plaatsen van de provincie. We stappen in de volgende plaatsen over: Maastricht, Gulpen, Heerlen, Sittard, Echt, Roermond, Weert, Venlo, Mook, Venlo and Roermond. Voor het volledige schema kijk je even hier: Denk eraan dat we makkelijk ergens een uur vertraging op kunnen lopen aangezien we vaak over moeten stappen. Het betekent dat we simpelweg een uurtje langer op pad zijn. Slaapplaats Ik kan je een slaapplek in Maastricht bieden. Stuur me een bericht als je dat graag wil. We hebben dus geen kaartje nodig? Wel dus, maar het kaartje kost 00,00 euro. Je kunt het kaartje, dat uitgeprint moet worden, hier downloaden: Heb je geen printer, geen nood, ik breng extra tickets mee. Wat neem ik mee? Eten en drinken. We zitten echt heel veel en lang in de bussen en treinen, in totaal acht uur. Bring something to eat and drink. We will spend really a lot of time in the buses and trains. Alleen in Mook, het noordelijkste puntje van Limburg, hebben we tijd om even naar een supermarkt en de snackbar te gaan. Gratis naar Maastricht Uiteraard kan je ook gratis met trein of bus naar Maastricht komen met dit ticket voor de meetup 's morgens. Ook geldig op de bussen vanuit Aken, Geilenkirchen en Maaseik naar Limburg en de trein Nijmegen-Venlo. Alleen is het ticket NIET geldig op de NS intercity vanuit Amsterdam naar Maastricht. Goedkoop naar Maastricht vanuit ver buiten Limburg: NS groepsretour Wil je mee, maar kom je van ver buiten Limburg? Voor 7 euro kun je retour reizen per trein naar Maastricht met een NS groepsretour. Stuur me een bericht om te reserveren en ik geef je verder instructie. Je hebt voor dit ticket van 7 euro een printer nodig. Schrijf ook in op CS! Contact Tijdens het event kan je me alleen per SMS en mobiel bereiken: geen apps, geen Facebook, geen rooksignalen. Mijn nummer: 0621488856.
