Hi, we're Bart and Sofie!
We met 13 years ago and have been inseperable ever since :-) We used to both have a corporate career in Retail (IT Section) and Banking while living in Brussels, our country's capital city!
In the fall of 2019, we decided to start a big adventure, touring Europe in a converted mini-bus/campervan. Since December of that year, we have been travelling around, surrendering to the unknown, enjoying new experiences and exploring as many places as possible.
Covid-19 impacted our plans greatly. Suddenly we were put in lockdown, we could no longer visit natural parks, cities or historical sites and we had trouble to start volunteering or doing Workaway. We've both been vaccinated in the summer of 2021: hopefully we can now start to shape this adventure as we originally intended!
We travel together with Lion, our four-year-old Spanish Podenco dog. We adopted him in the spring of 2020 from a shelter in Andalucia. He's supersweet with people, other animals, children,.. and he loves travelling, exploring and hiking as much as we do! His only vice? He was trained as a puppy to become a hunting dog so he can't help chasing rabbits and barking at cats. Sadly, we have to keep him on leash for this reason. But no worries, he gets plenty of walks, exercise and chewtoys to keep him healthy and very very happy!

Quelles sont vos compétences ?
Bart has an education in Applied Economics and he's really passionate about everything related to technology. Having worked as an IT analyst in the past, figuring out solutions for complex issues from start to finish has become his second nature, no matter the project. He also enjoys playing around with anything digital: the internet, web design, graphic design, photography,...
Being in nature, getting his hands dirty and learning new skills are the things that bring joy to his life.
Sofie loves learning about the most diverse topics, whether it's about a social issue, the history of a country or a region or the best way to build a shed. She's a Master in Political Science and Economics. She used to work at a Belgian retail bank, analyzing the financials of Small and Medium Entreprises. At the moment, she's learning how to build websites with Wordpress.
However, she inherited a green thumb and a hands on approach from her grandparents and that's where her real passions lie. She loves being outdoors, gardening, cleaning, crafting and generally "make" things whether its something functional, something fun or something nice to eat/drink!
We would both love to learn some new skills while we help you in your project. Whether it's building, painting, gardening, cooking,... just give us some guidelines and explain us what you want to achieve exactly and we will do our very best to help!
We're from Belgium so we both speak multiple languages. Next to Dutch, Bart could pass as a native speaker in English and has a basic understanding of French and slow Spanish.
Sofie speaks Dutch, English and French pretty fluently and understands German and Spanish (and some very basic Portugese).
We both are enthusiastic to learn more languages or to teach you one of ours!

Maybe some fun facts?
- Since December 2019, we've visited Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria and Croatia.
- While travelling around the Mediterranean countries, we were confronted plenty of times with the (plastic) pollution on its shores. For that reason, we try to clean up every spot we camp at, whether it's only a handful or multiple bags of trash.
- Our big dream is to buy a plot of land in the South of Europe and live as autonomously and as sustainably as possible on it.

Régime alimentaire spécial
We will eat what you eat! We're not vegetarians but we would love to try it out and become more confident in creating nutrious vegetarian/vegan dishes.
