My deepest condoleances for all victims of the Malaysian Airlines which has been shot down on July 17, 2014 iam so sorry for all families

Eindhoven as news item in The NEW YORK TIMES article

I started this homepage at VT when i was looking for travelinfo about Ukraine in 2000. I began to read and became an active member . It was a great oppurtunity to make my own travelpages. Since then I try to update as much as possible.
I was a chatmoderator for about 1 year and i made many friends through this chat:-)
Iam born in Eindhoven, grew up in Woensel West, Strijp and now i live at district Gestel.
My roots from my fathers familytree:

Wilhelmus Goorts van de Vorst ° 1663 - (Nl) x Maria Peeters-stamovergrootouders

Iam half Dutch, half Ukrainian , because my father was born at Eindhoven (Strijp) and my mam at Morshin (Striy) Ukraine
Lets hope that 2005 will be a better year without disasters like in East Asia
