  • Description

    We are Stella (25yrs) and Loek (26yrs) and we've been together for 7 years now.
    We wanted to tell you something about ourselves, but as a fun challenge we wrote down what we see in each other.
    For a complete list of our skills you can scroll down.
    (Loek about Stella)
    What I Love about Stella is her passion for food. As a result she has become a very good cook, and likes to experiment with the ingredients available. I sometimes make fun of her for using only half an union, but she replies very seriously that it is for a better balance of the dish. (Leftovers will be used though!).
    With Stella there is never a dull moment, for she is a little bit crazy. You should watch her eat!
    Alright, on a more serious note: she is extremely caring, and tends to put others before herself.
    We have been together for almost 7 (!!) years now and she still surprises me. She is always up for a challenge and new experiences. We both enjoy the little things in life. Watching the sunrise, pouring rain after a hot day, or spontaneous music-making at the campfire.
    Stella is also good with kids and together with a group of friends she organizes a yearly chess-summercamp (sadly, I may not come too). Not to forget: she is a novice goat-whisperer and a big fan of boardgames!!!
    To summarize: Stella excels in people-skills and food-skills!!
    (Stella about Loek)
    Loek is an amazing artist. Specially in the musical way. He makes is own instruments and they actually sound great. He's a very caring, creative, and positive person who is always up for something new. He loves physical heavy work and chopping wood is one of is favorite things to do, he can do that for days. What is very annoying about him (what I think) is that when you explain him something, he's able to do it in no time! What also good to know is, is that Loek has his own cocktail business, and makes the best cocktails! Luckily I'm the test-person! So he is also a very enterprising and ambitious person! Not to forget he's superhandy. he can weld, build an is amazing with wood! Also, when I let him cook, Iḿ always surprised how good the food is! (special Indian Food)
    The short story: Loek can do almost everything. And if not, he will learn it in 2 hours!
