Being a Flemish woman living in the Netherlands, I’m fascinated with the differences in cultures and language. I’ve been living here for 9 years and still I’m recognized as being Flemish by the minute I open my mouth. Although all my Flemish friends claim me to be more Dutch than Flemish by now. But, it can be interesting knowing a bit of both cultures and languages…
It’s great fun to see the Belgian team at bol.com growing and to meet new colleagues. Together we get more done and there is still so much to achieve. It’s a challenging job, but working both in the Belgian and Dutch team to create the best shop for us all is a rewarding and exciting job. To all Flemish talents who want to join our team, let us know!
I’ve tried out many things: kayak, kite surf, ski … But one stuck with me: SUP or Stand Up Paddle boarding. I tried it both at sea as on flat water and I’m only fan of the flat water SUP. I have my own inflatable board, which is always in my trunk, so wherever I go, I can decide to just take it out for a tour.
Every week another choreo, exercises and another short movie! It’s just so much fun giving step, bodyshape and aerobic dance at Ben Rietdijk Sport & Fitness Aalsmeer. And to share that fun, I try to make a little wrap-up of the week. Check out the movies on facebook or youtube.
Proud of my friend, the artist: Geraldine Van Wessem. Once again, some of her works (photographs) are shown in an exhibition, this one called ‘Unknown Masterpieces’. She keeps surprising us with beautiful pictures made on her travels. But also just the pictures she makes of us… WOW.
Proud of myself, happy with these new achievements. First winter tour hut-to-hut with backpack, skis & snowshoes … all on my own! Last year I planned on doing it in a distant future. But impatientely as I am, only a year further, I’ve done it!! read more…
