First snowflakes…

Read this blog in English

One fluffy snowflake floating down hundreds of miles and landing gently on the soft grass in our backyard. And another! We stare in complete unbelief out our window, could it be!? I can’t remember the last time it showed enough to build a decent snowman. The kids are watching the whole morning how the snow is falling and slowly transforming the landscape into a winter wonderland… it’s still a thin veil of white fluffy frosty magic but we can’t wait any longer. We have to touch it, walk through it, feel it, taste it, play with it, and throw it!

Love to imagine that our little house is standing in a little snow globe! Snowflakes have a beautiful way of weightlessly floating around through the air.

These first magical snowflakes this winter are so welcomed, loved, and totally celebrated!

Eén pluizig sneeuwvlokje zweeft honderden kilometers omlaag en landt zachtjes op het zachte gras in onze achtertuin. En nog eentje! We staren in volledig ongeloof uit ons raam, zou het waar zijn!? Ik kan me niet herinneren wat de laatste keer was dat het genoeg gesneeuwt had om een fatsoenlijke sneeuwpop te bouwen. De kinderen kijken de hele ochtend al uit het raam hoe de sneeuw zachtjes valt en langzaam het landschap omtovert in een spierwit winterwonderland … het is nog steeds een dunne sluier van witte bevroren magie maar we kunnen gewoon niet langer wachten. We moeten het aanraken, er doorheen lopen, het voelen, proeven, ermee spelen en het gooien!

Ik kijk omhoog en stel mijzelf voor dat ons huisje in een kleine sneeuwbol staat op iemands schoorsteenmantel! Sneeuwvlokken hebben zo´n prachtige unieke manier van gewichtloos door de lucht zweven…

Er lag toen nog niet veel, maar deze eerste magische sneeuwvlokken deze winter zijn uitbundig door ons verwelkomd en geviert!

Teach them in experiences

Read this blog in English

From which would you prefer to learn?  By only reading about it, or by experiencing it yourself? Wich one would make a profound impression on you which will stick to you for the rest of your life!?

I  really like to read books about adventures, foreign cultures, interesting people and beautiful landscapes, history, and nature all over the world and dream away and soak up all those stories and knowledge. But I LOVE to have adventures myself, visit foreign cultures, meet interesting people and see beautiful landscapes and discover nature all over the world myself. And I especially love to do that together with my kids. Stimulating them to climb every mountain (or tree) life, and look into this world with an open mind full of wonder and curiosity.

So take your kids by the hand or take them on your back, show them every aspect of this beautiful, harsh, inspiring, scary, complex world and life! There is so much to discover out there, better start young!

Ik vind het heerlijk om weg te dromen met een mooi boek over avonturen, vreemde culturen, interessante mensen en prachtige landschappen, geschiedenis en natuur over de hele wereld. Maar er gaat niets boven het zelf avonturen beleven, buitenlandse culturen bezoeken, interessante mensen ontmoeten, prachtige landschappen zien en de natuur over de hele wereld zelf te ontdekken. Ik vind het vooral leuk om dit samen met mijn kinderen te doen. Om ze te stimuleren elke berg (of boom) in dit leven te beklimmen, en deze wereld in te kijken met een open blik vol verwondering en nieuwsgierigheid.

Hoe zou jij het liefste de wereld ontdekken? Door er over te lezen, of door het zelf te ervaren? Wat je zou een diepe indruk op je maken die je de rest van je leven bij zal blijven!? Neem je kinderen bij de hand of draag ze op je rug, laat ze elk aspect van deze mooie, harde, inspirerende, enge, complexe wereld en het leven zien! Er is zoveel te ontdekken, je kunt niet vroeg genoeg beginnen!

Carry in style -Carry you home

The baby-carrying way of life.
Wherever we go we take our baby with us! No problem, she just hops on our back and she gets te see the world from her private VIP seat.
Plus we get all those extra bonus cuddles from her!

It’s really a livestyle thing. Not having to stay at home for all those naps, she prefers to sleep close to us. We can entertain her, so much to see from up there. And she gets to view and explore the world from a safe place. So where ever we are she is getting everything she needs.

This feeling of keeping your child close to you and carry them is a hard thing to describe with words.
PinkNova desided to produce a song about it. A thing that has never been done before as far as i know!
The dutch singer-song writer Bart Voncken wrote the song for them called “I will carry you home”
The song is just so sweet and sincere, it communicates exactly that feeling of keeping your child close you ,and caring for them more than anything in this whole wide world! Can’t help but getting all emotional every time i hear it!

With our photograpy and videography we always try to show how we experience this world and illustrate our feeling of being close and connected to each other as a family. Ilse and Judith from PinkNova came to us width the question if we would like to use the song in our newest video.
And offcourse we would like that! Actually, it’s a huge honor!

We took a little break in putting our video’s online. The shots of our adventures from the last view months were saved to make one compilation video for the song! Nothing fancy, just the four of us, living our lives, going on roadtrips, cuddling on the couch, loving eachother, and carrying our babygirl with us. Honest, sincere, real images. Beautiful but not prefect, just as real life.

Scroll down to see a view pictures we took while shooting the video.

In the next couple of weeks we will publish the complete video’s where this compilation video is made out off!
Lots of unseen footage and complete photo series and stories behind every scene to come!
