Where we want to go
Description of our house
Our house is rather new, but I think it is cosy and very comfortable. We have a large, sunny living room, with windows on three sides and a fireplace. The kitchen has everything you need to make a nice meal, even a steamer and a boiling water tap. The big dining table is a good place to have your meal, read the newspaper or to sit and talk with either a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. There is also a scullery with a washing machine and a dryer. The former office is now a playing room where the children can use the Playstation or play other games.

= marks the location of this home
We live in the centre of a small village. You can walk to the baker's, the butcher's and a big supermarket. There are two fine restaurants across the street and many in the naberhood. The railwaystation is a one minute walk. Utrecht is 15 minutes by train, Amsterdam about 45 minutes, by car only 35 minutes. Our village is surrounded by woods, where you can walk and ride your bike. Only a few kilometres away you find a lot of water for sailing.
Something about ourselves
My name is Abelike. After living in Utrecht, Amsterdam and Rotterdam I enjoy living in a more quiet place with my three children. Willem is 16, Rinze 14 and Minke 12 years old. I work at home for the company of my ex-husband, I look after the children and I am working on a book on a jewish family during WWII.
