I live with my wonderful wife Ilona and our lovely daughter Shinouk for many years in this apartment. For a few years ago also our fine son Joshua was living with us. But as grownups do, he is now living in his own apartment not far away from us and he is now a student financial economics.
First we did rent the apartment. By that time it where actually two apartments. In 2004 we were able to buy it and reconstruct the interior completely meeting nowadays standards. This was completed in 2005. The house, in which our apartment is situated, is originally build in 1905. Therefore, it has the charm and atmosphere of an old Amsterdam house, combined with the comfort of a newly build one.
I work as an epidemiologist and nurse researcher at the university. Ilona is play therapist, helping children in psychotherapy through play with psychological problems. Therefore, we have quite some toys for girls and boys from three to twelve. If you come with children from that age we can provide toys. Our daughter Shinouk is already visiting secondary school, so she is above that age already.
