About Our Family

My name is Liesje (32) and I work for the Belgian Road Safety Institute. My husband Jan (39) is a planner for a company that transports goods by trains. We have been living in our new house for about 2 years now and are very enthusiastic about it. We also love to travel and discover other places, which is the reason we enlisted on Intervac.
