In Ik Vertrek Even Weg old candidates can get inspiration from each other, can they learn something from each other or will it be a real test? This week, the Geurts and Mensing families hope to learn from each other about how to combine family life with work at home.

In 2017, Dirk, Vikje and their children Handsome Jeb left their idyllic life in Amsterdam behind to pursue their dreams in Spain. They want to feel the sun on their skin and make people happy with a cute holiday title. They buy a house on top of a mountain in Andalusia where they want to build holiday homes.
Everything seems to be going smoothly for the Geurts. The Bed and Breakfast in Andalusia has been a huge success and there is a family expansion with the arrival of Boaz. Yet they also continue to have that big problem; How do you combine family life and work from home?
The Geurts family draws inspiration from the Minsingh family in Umbria, Italy. Here Jean Paul and Rosalie Mensingh organize activities for the guests. To stay in the Italian vibe, they head together to pick grapes on a meter-tall vineyard. There is so much that goes into a glass of wine.
Jean Paul and Rosalie Mensingh love the Italian vibe and mentality. So they are very happy when they leave for Umbria in 2020 with their children Dylan and Isabella. Here they bought a dilapidated building with a large plot of land. In three months they want to renovate four apartments and build a camping site.
The Minsingh family has been living in Italy for only 1.5 years, and despite the fact that they have already gained a lot, they are still looking. Jean-Paul and Rosalie encounter the rules that keep their enthusiasm sluggish. They also find it difficult to be with children. So they find it interesting to take a look at a family that has been in business for some time.
While visiting the Geurts in Spain, the Minsingh family is venturing into a flamenco dance. The fact that Jean-Paul has little experience in dancing should not spoil the fun.
