Since the 1st of July 2010 I'm father of my amazing son, Ruben! And since 28th of February 2012 our daughter Lotte made the family even more fun!

Our son Ruben & Lotte our daughter

Now the sad part starts 30th of July 2012 our little boy Ruben died in an accident. Leaving us devistated. This accident changed our lives forever, but we have to be strong and carry on. So if you see Ruben somewhere on the pages think about it and remember life is more precious than you ever think. So don't waste your time. We mis him and think of him wherever we may roam...

In August 2012 we have had our 1st family holiday with the three of us without Ruben. It was a hard time, but we could enjoy our little girl and the wonderful weather. It was like our boy was suprizing us with this sun from up there...

We hope to enjoy things the same way as we did this holiday!

2013 consisted of a few trips to Kenya, Ghana, Germany, Austria and Italy with comming up trips to Spain and Sweden planned.

PSV Eindhoven & football

My favorite football club is PSV Eindhoven. I have a season ticket since 1992. Last year, 2004-2005 they were fabulouse in Champions League. Ihope they will be even better in the future, which is very hard to release for a Dutch club, losing their best player to European top teams. Like we had in the past.
