Welcome to the Elodie family!
We are Christiane and Chango – both devoted travellers and sailors. Christiane has worked as a trained travel agent with a tour operator and and agency in her hometown Cologne and in Munich (Germany) as well as in England before she became a mother. The last 20 years she has pursued a career in journalism, Public Relations and as an author of travel guides while raising her now adult kids. Chango has been sailing all of his life, for about 40 years now as Captain-at-sea. Name any type of ship and he will sure have had its wheel in his hands. He’s also a devoted father and master of “Easy”, our little four-legged family member from a Rumanian dog-shelter who he shares the wheelhouse with.
We’re enthusiastic about the Elodie and the wonderful concept of Bike & Barge that Mirjam and Michel Meeuwessen developed in almost 22 years of running the business, and we’ll be happy to welcome you on board and to make you feel at home away from home.
