About Our Family

My name is Liesje (36) and I work as a customer service representative. My husband Jan (43) is a planner for Lineas (a company that transports goods by train). We have been living in our new house for 6 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. We have done about 8 exchanges and loved each one. We have 2 children, our son Cyriel who is 2 years old ( October 2019) and babygirl Rosalie who was born in September 2021.
