Join Couchsurfing to see Erik’s full profile. It’s free!
We're a family with two children, twins Karel and Madelief (born July 12, 2006). We sometimes host families for a few days. Couchsurfing is all about meeting people, so contact us if you like to have a meal and a chat together, maybe go for a walk in the woods or play a board game. If you only need a free place to stay, we're not really interested.
Respect everybody whatever their ideas, religion or skin color are.Sometimes my country seems to have forgotten about that. I haven't.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We're not busy Couchsurfing all the time. We host people a few times per year. I sometimes use CS when I travel for my Lego hobby, too. And sometimes we join meetings.
We've met some nice and very different people from a lot of countries, some we will certainly see again. As the kids grow up, I hope they will keep meeting kids from all sorts of places and learn that things are different wherever you go and life at everybody's place is different.We have had a few guests / hosts who were friendly but complained afterwards. That is an unsettling experience. Please don't do that, if you're unhappy about something please tell us right away or if it's not important say nothing!
Countries I visited:
My hobby is Lego. I am an AFOL (Adult Fan of Lego), so I create my own models and sometimes show them at expositions, or online. My creations are here: http://etilego.notlong.com
I also like travelling, photography, board games, cats, saunas, hiking.... and I work as a translator.
Esther is into cooking, philosophy,.... She works as a postman in our village.
Karel is into Minecraft, comics and Lego. He goes to a special needs scouting group because he has muscular distrophy, which means he gets tired easily and can't walk very far.
Madelief is a creative girl who loves reading and science an wants to start acting. She now goes to an alternative elementary school where she feels really well.

I don't really care what other people think is cool. I prefer to discover things I like, whatever other people think
