Who we are

  1. We are a family of 6 and moved from Brussels 7 years ago. We run our own design and production company for wooden kids'school furniture and toys. We have 4 children (16, 14, 11 and 6 years old) who are bilingual French-German.
    We love to travel and had 9 home exchanges so far: in NYC, Florida, London and Brugge, Amsterdam, Andorra,Paris, Arizona and Maryland/Annapolis in summer 2012. We think that this is a great way to discover different countries and people. We care a lot about other people's property (like our own) and are very tidy and respectful.
