About Me


"Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."


I am Heleen, 29 years old, I'm a 'social' teacher for low educated (foreign) adults.
I played the violin and the piano for more than ten years but I don't find a lot of time anymore to play.
I like to sew in my free time and go for a swim once a week.

I am Ben, 30 years old, working as a jazz pianist in a few schools.
I like to play and create music. I play the keys in Recorders.
We live in Mechelen.
We like to spend our time with friends, going to the movies, play board games, have a drink, ...

We couch-surfed together in Iceland. Good experience.
