Special bikinglanes through Best makes it safe for children to practice biking and skating.
Within 20 kilometres there are two Zoo's: Dierenrijk, with a lot of playgrounds and de Beekse Bergen, where animals heve got very big areas to live. With your own car or by buss you can go through the area where giraffes live. At the Beekse Bergen is also a beach/playpark.

When you love to swim, you can do so in the open air in Best, but also next to Dippie Doe at AquaBest.

Jarno is our second son. He is fifteen years old. He also loves to swim and play guitar and drumms. He loves to play games as monopoly, Piranha panic or kimble, so we've got a lot of games in our house.  Also he is the mechanic in the house (with a little help of his father).
Jorieke is thirteen years old. She likes to sing and dance and cycling around in the neighbourhood.
We've changed houses for twelve times now and went to Canada (twice), Sweden (thrice), Belgium, Spain, France, Ireland, Germany and Holland. We all loved the sensation of living in an other country.
Tibbe and Twiggy are our two cats.
