About Our Family
We are an open-minded family consisting of Tom (man), Bie (woman) and two children Liv and Simon. We have traveled through South East Asia and Latin America and love to live in a city but also reach out to nature by time to time. We like to meet up with friends and family, but we also like to spare some time for sports or to go to drawing school. Simon and Liv are very sporty and love music and drama.
We are a family who love to live in our nice neighborhood in Antwerp, but during the school holidays we like to look for nice destinations in nature or in other nice cities. We used to travel in Southeast Asia and South America. Since we have our children, we spend our travel time in Europe for the time being.
We love sports (football, gymnastics, fitness, jogging, cycling), music, fun with friends, laughter, fun and occasionally theater or another cultural event.
