About Our Family

We're a family of four. Dieter is working for the municipal services of Sint-Truiden as an event manager. Evi is a graphic designer and teaches at an art school in Hasselt. We like travelling and exploring different places. Giel and Lili-Marie both like to swim and to draw/paint. We've discovered Intervac thanks to our friends Pieter and Julien (and Pieters parents). They also live in our hometown.
