Our home is right by the historic centre of Alkmaar, which was founded hundreds of years ago and become a city of importance in the 15th century. Ot has the characteristic Dutch Canals and an old Canal surrounding the old centre. The 'Oude stad' is a very popular shopping area, with hundreds of small boutiques and shops in the elaborate and narrow streets.
Something about ourselves
We are a family of 5; our three daughters are 1, 3 and 5. Our eldest daughter is handicapped, but that has never stopped us from travelling abroad and see the world. Their mother is a primary school teacher and their father is manager of a design company.
