Hi! Great that you made it to De Maanboom!

Let’s get informed, enthused and surprised!

De Maanboom will inspire you to go on and experiment! Browse on my blog to get to know more about Chrononutrition, DIY, city gardening, … or consider to get enrolled in my language coaching program (coming soon).

My name is Esther, and I’m a teacher in Brussels (in Belgium). I teach Dutch to adults and I’m very passionate about it. In my free time I garden, cook, work (a lot) on my appartment, dream, sew, learn, read, take care of the cats and chickens and my boyfriend.

My origins are in West Flanders, the region of the Belgian coast, but, since university, I live in Brussels. There I studied linguistics and literature at the VUB.

As a child, I dreamed of having a blog and now I’ve made that dream come true. I mainly write about cooking and share recipes, but occasionally I write about gardening, poetry and so on. I write in English, (try in) French, and Dutch.

Dutch is my mother-tongue, and at university I studied English. French is the language I speak with her boyfriend (he’s French).

Look around to find some inspiration and leave some comments!
