Temporary settled life in the Alps

Esmé

This is Esmé. Born on 28th of May 2014. She loves to eat, “talk” and roll through the apartment. She adores her big brother Ben, according to her he is the most interesting, funny and best person in the whole world.

We now live in Außervillgraten, a tiny mountain village in the Austrian Alps. We enjoy a calm and slow life with our kids and go out into nature with them as often as possible. Hiking, (tour)skiing, sledging and obviously cycling, everything is possible. (See pictures below.)

We miss the life on the road and are saving money for our next trip. Weehoo will sponsor us with one of their iGo bicycle trailers for Ben so he can actively participate in our journey.

  1. Hi there, Got up and watched the end of the Paris-Nice last night, a sprint after 2 guys were away for ages. I’m forwarding the letter from our friends Peter & Petra (we rode with Peter in S.A., visited them plus Ben in Holland). Ben is pedalling a Weehoo for the next trip, it looks pretty good. Nice to talk yesterday, we’re off to the tablelands as soon as we’re organised. Lots of love xxxxxx

  3. ha Petra en Peter, dat ziet er uit als het leven in een sprookje. Zoveel mooie natuur, 2 schatjes van kinderen! Hier ook alles goed, weinig sneeuw gezien trouwens. wel veel sterren en sneeuwklokjes.
    Geniet er maar van, lieve groeten Vincent

  4. Hoi Petra,

    Wat ontzettend leuk om weer iets van jullie te horen. Wat een prachtige dochter erbij en Ben al zo’n grote knul! Loes is vorige maand 5 geworden en zit dus inmiddels al weer een jaar op school. Lijkt nog zo kort geleden, spelen samen met Ben op de kinderboerderij in Zeist…..

    Lieve groet, Mariska
