We are continuing our travels (after spending the summer months in Europe) with our Roadtrek 190 in the USA for several months, road schooling our 2 small children (3 and 5 year). Our 3 year old Lieske, loves dancing, horses, reading books etc. Our 5 year old, Jasper, loves books, lego and has a lot of stories. Our kids are in general well behaved, although Lieske might sometimes get mad if something does not go to her liking! (she is 3!)
I (Jacomijn) work for the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Certification Services, certifying organic farms and can do this work anywhere with my phone and computer on my side. My husband (Chris) used to be a wooden boat builder, house fixer upper, and is now taking care of the kids while I work. We have a house in Belfast, ME that is rented out. We used to be hosting for the warmshower community (which is similar as boondockers welcome but then for bicyclist) and loved it!

We love to travel to national, state and provincial parks!

Great guests. We had lots of fun learning about their travels with the kids. It was fun for us and i hope it was for them too.
This is the second time we hosted jacomijn and to see the children growing up. What a difference a year makes. It's obvious the parents enjoy nature and sharing their knowledge with their children. The children have a great curiosity about life and nature and their parents nuture it in a very loving way. They are welcome to visit again on their travels!
Great family and easy to host. What a wonderful way to start teaching kids to love life and love learning. Safe travels as you head back east.
I admire this young family adventuring and learning while out on the road. I got to visit with Chris a couple times and he was very fun and interesting to chat with. Hearing their travel stories keeps me inspired to hit the road and make some adventures of my own......retirement is soon and I'll be ready!
So nice to have this family stay...hope they can come back when we can spend more time visiting. They're on a trip of a lifetime.
I didn't pay much attention to this leaving a reference last year with all of the travelling we did but jacomijn visited our spot and very much added to our hosting history. Safe travels and we hope you come buy again sometime
Came and stayed for two days. We’re very nice and fun to talk too. Highly recommended.
Just an awesome family; I enjoyed getting to know them. They are on an interesting and wonderful adventure together. If their travels ever bring them this direction, they are most welcome to stop by and stay again! They have two of the best kids I have ever met!
Pleasant visit with this young family who were friendly with well behaved kids. They even treated us to pizza one evening. Wishing them the best on their continued travels!
Team jacomijn were a friendly bunch. They were receptive to our suggestions of things to do in Austin. They even supported our hens by purchasing some eggs. They are welcome back any time. Safe travels
What a sweet family! I enjoyed our visit and the kiddos were angels...didn't even know they were here! Would gladly host them again! Happy Travels!
A nice young couple with two adorable children. Very respectful and friendly. Welcome at our place anytime. We enjoy sharing our spot with people like this.
It was a delight to have jacomijn and chris stay with us for two nights. They are sweet and considerate guests and we wish them the best on their continued travels. Hope it warms up for you!
A wonderful family traveling with their two children who are incredibly well-behaved. It was a pleasure hosting them and hope they will return when it is warmer weather. They are always welcome.
Enjoyed hosting this family with two young kids for two nights. Children are very well behaved and everyone respected our place. They were gone most of the day with the kids seeing local places. In the evenings we had time to get to visit with them.
Recommend you host them if you get the chance.
We were unavailable to welcome them when they arrived and they did just as we asked them to.
Jacomijn are welcome anytime!
Lovely young family seeing the world with their two youngsters. They were very considerate of my space, and also just staying in touch with their comings and goings. Wonderful experience, Don't hesitate to host them!
Very sweet family with all kinds of interesting travel tips and stories. Easy to host, quiet and kind. Looking forward to seeing them again someday.
