  • Description

    AS A COUPLE:
    In 2010 we sold almost everything and started wandering around the globe. Since then, we have decided to travel continuously around the world in order to experience a nomadic life among the locals of everywhere.
    RIGHT NOW AS A FAMILY:
    In 2015, we have bought an old 1985 Mercedes 207D van, renamed Keekoh, in order to roadtrip around the less-known parts of Europe. And big surprise, a new baby just came on board in February of 2017. When our little nomad was 3 months, we went for a long roadtrip around France, Spain, Portugual and Morocco last year, as we needed to get accustomed to the vanlife and our new tribe. Now, we want to get back to our initial love, the work exchanges. Helping others in their project, exchanging lifestyle, discovering a place through their eyes, therefore we are very excited to start this new journey as a family in 2019.
    ALIZÉ:
    I'm really interested in learning about organic farming, sustainable initiatives and pregnancy (pre and post) as a doula. I want to learn new skills that have to do with self-sufficient living, self-growth and wellness. I have graduated in interior design in 2010 from a Belgium university. I hope to learn more about permaculture, in order to combine my skills and passion for natural building. Most of all, I want to attain these skills for my own evolution and to live in harmony with nature. I am also very interested about ceramic, yoga, meditation and everything about positive education & home schooling. I am creative, outgoing and very social and I am up for any kind of adventure!
    MAXIME:
    I am a photographer / globetrotter / webdesigner / used to be a software engineer / willing and ready to explore this great world of ours. I am an energetic person who loves human connections, organic farming and building stuff. I speak fluently french and english with some spanish level and a touch of italian who is now a bit rusty but coming along. I love the adventure, love the teamwork, love the people, love the laughter, love to have a good time.
