  • Description

    We are Henk and Liset from Rotterdam – Netherlands; a couple working in the cultural field. We love to travel, mostly with our VW-T4 campervan.
    We have 2 adult children living in London and Sweden.
    We are planning a future with more travelling besides our freelance jobs and start a try out periode from now on. We hope to hit the road in 2019 for a longer period of time.
    September 2015 we started very small with a weekend grape picking at an organic farm in the Netherlands.

    Henk is a marketeer, he studied theatre at Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris. He worked for several theatres in the Netherlands and is at this moment a freelance programmer and marketeer and has a lot of connections with impresario's especially in the classical music field.

    We met on stage but Liset preferred visual arts. She is a professional nursery school and art teacher. As an artist she makes mono and screenprints and graphic scores. If necessary she can give you a reference address from her biggest client. As an artist she is a member of CBK Rotterdam. She teaches and develops artclasses / social projects for very different groups

    We are both photographers and have a lot of theatre skills.
    In the summer of 2015 we organised and crowdfunded an art/music project in Romania and worked there for 2 weeks.
    You can find more about our work on www.ateliervandommelen.nl and www.kuiperscultuur.nl
    In summer we are some weekends volunteer campground hosts at a natural campground in the Netherlands.
    And in April 2017 we presented the project 'Mirror Me" a meet me without words concept for Sencity a festival for hearing and deaf people in Rotterdam.

    We moved a lot so far and fixed quite a few houses and a houseboat. Deconstruction, and painting the places is the thing we mostly did ourselves, the rest was done by professionals.

    Skating, hiking and biking are things we love to do. We biked from the Netherlands to Paris.
    We love meeting other people while traveling. Learn more about the country we are travelling in and not spent all our time at a campsite, hostel or in the van.

    Our first workaway experience was one week in Scotland 2016 and we loved it.
    After that experience Liset went on het own to the North of Sweden end of 2016 for 2 weeks for an other workaway. There she gave a presentation about her prining techniques for colleages.

    Netherlands and Belgium
    We travel a lot inside our own country the Netherlands. Oirschot, Kampen and Beilen are visited by us regular with our campervan for work and family visits. For short help (also Belgium area close to Rotterdam) sent us a request and we will see if it is possible to make it fit in our schedule.

    Asia
    In summer 2017 we are planning a trip to Asia. Starting in Hanoi and travel afterwards to China (Dali and Shangri la area).

    Stockholm and London are places we also visit every year.
