We are continuing our travels with our Roadtrek 190 in the USA for several months, road schooling our 2 children (5 and 8 year). Our 5 year old Lieske, loves dancing, horses, reading books etc. Our 8 year old, Jasper, loves books, bushcraft and has a lot of stories. Our kids are in general well behaved, but are shy when meeting new people.
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 have our vaccines and wear our masks.

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

We really enjoyed this couple's company along with their kids. It just worked out that we had two of our grandkids here and they had a good time.
A wonderful family that is respectful gracious and loving. If you ever want a dissertation of how to make fire without matches or a lighter, that is delivered more professional than any YouTube video you could watch, ask their passionate 8 -year-old son!
This my friends, is what homeschooling is meant to be 👍❤️
Very respectful and quiet visitors. Sweet kids and great communicative parents. It was a pleasure to host them. You are welcome here anytime!
Our children had a fantastic time playing with their children, only wish they could’ve stayed longer!
We appreciated their stay! They are a very nice, considerate family and fun to chat with. They had to deal with some unexpected mechanical issues, always one of a travelers worst worries, but they made the best of it and it looks like everything will be working out. We wish for them smooth and fun travels on the rest of their trip!
Hosted this sweet family. Very quiet and considerate and would definitely host again.
I wasn’t home but let them stay in my driveway. They were nice by sending pictures of their setup informing me of their stay. They are welcome back anytime.
I hosted this family for two nights. They were very considerate and quiet. I would definitely recommend and hope to see them again soon!
We truly enjoyed hosting Jacomijn. They are really making the most of their travels and providing their children with lifelong memories. Our kids really hit it off and they played wonderfully together. We learned a lot from this adventurous family and we wish continued blessings on their travels. They are welcomed back anytime.
It was wonderful to meet these great parents and their two sweet kids. I wish we could have spent more time together. They were friendly and appreciative. I admire their adventurous spirit and hope to catch up with them in the northeast sometime in the future!
Enjoyed meeting this traveling Quads. Never knew they were hear overnight as they were so quiet.
Don’t come back for a second night as that space we spoke of was taken before I went to bed.
BUT, you can come back anytime the schedule looks available.

Very quiet family.
We hardly knew they were here.
Glad they were comfortable for the night.
They are certainly welcome to stay here any time.
Enjoyed meeting and chatting with these guests. Self contained and quiet. Always welcome!
Jacomijn are true boondockers, They are very self-sufficient. It was a pleasure hosting them and we enjoyed the time we spent visiting. Glad the "Reds" had some time and space to roam!
We really enjoyed hosting this team!! It was great catching up and chatting. Great communication about eta and assisted with closing up the chickens at night.
Welcome back anytime!!
We thoroughly enjoyed hosting this lovely family. Our kids had a lot of fun playing with theirs, and it was very nice chatting and getting to know them a little bit during their stay. In short, they were great guests, and it would be our sincere pleasure to have them back any time they like.
They were a very nice family. Great communication and left my place just like they found it. Welcome back anytime...
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.
