Since people ask me what i do...here's a short description :
I'm a professional fireman in the lovely city of Ghent,
when i'm not at the fire station you can find me in the garage behind the house restoring old cars, especially 2CV's, and when i'm not in the garage then i am probably driving around Europe... in one of my 2cv's! Can you pass the 2CV gearshift-test and drive the car yourself ? ;-))
My wife Mieke is working in a school so she's around the house during school-holidays and weekends.
Also we are cycling and hiking enthusiasts and still discover secret parts in our beautiful region that we like to share with other people... In fact, we are in love with the Westhoek...a love that is too big to keep for ourself!!
