Our family

Diana Vermeij

A proud mom with an adventurous heart and open mind. Responsible for our start in Mexico in 2011 and for buying Nina the van. She's observant like her son and an active listener who doesn't need a lot of words to say a lot.

Steven Zwerink

A dad to die for, he has been called numerous times. He proves it to his kids every day with the choices he makes. Like his daughter, Steven is high- energy and curious. A born entrepreneur who dares to trust his instincts.

Isa Mae Zwerink Vermeij (2015)

Born in Mexico with hair as bright as the sun and eyes blue like the Caribbean ocean. A young spirit with a lot of energy and lust for life. She speaks two languages but ignores her parents in both;)

Vesper Adrian Zwerink Vermeij (2017)

An observant, sensitive and playful boy. He's an easy-going Mexican with Dutch roots. He's outgoing and expressive. Everything he sees and experiences is felt and tasted to the fullest.
