Before we moved over from Holland in April 2003 my wife Jacqueline and I had busy jobs there. We could have continued to live this life until our pension, but somehow we both needed a new challenge and wanted to change our lives completely. We wanted to do something quite different and be more close to nature and its daily routines, which turned out to be no routine at all. During the past years we have started to fall in love with this beautiful area, its easy way of living and the friendly local people we encountered over the years. So if we ever would have to leave this place it would be with lots of regret.
