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!
In the beginning of 2018, Frank & I moved to Ankeveen and what a great decision that was. We now live near many lakes and rivers and we can start paddling from home. We met with some clubs nearby and we decided to offer our assistance when they are overcrowded or when they like to offer classes like SUPbootcamp, SUPbalance or SUPfitness.
What a wonderful summer it was. Me and my boyfriend Frank set up SUP classes with SUP Center Amsterdam. We experimented with different formats: beginners classes, private classes, tours, fitness classes… all on a SUP board. And we had a great time. The weather could have been better, but we met a lot of people and had great fun.
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…
