About Our Family

I love to travel, especially now that I'm retired. I am a big fan of the home exchange formula.
During the holidays, my daughter (Rieke) occasionally goes with her husband (Tom) and two children (Alexander 5 years old and Emmelien 1 year old).
Outside of the holidays, I often travel with retired friends or my sister.

Lifestyle
