benwijdeveld(or Ben) is a member from Netherlands . He has been a member for over 2 years (913 days).
After a business life in selling medical imaging equipment around the world, I am now retired since 2007. Occasionally I have still done some management consulting work, but most of my time I spend on a medical aid project in Nicaragua, on photography and on finding out everything about my family in the past centuries.
I am married for over 40 years and have 2 grown-up kids and a real big, but very friendly Newfoundlander dog. More importantly, Monday March 12th, on my 65th birthday anniversary, my first grandchild Jessi was born and yes, she is the most beautiful baby in the world!
Together with my son and daughter I visit most of the home matches of the best Dutch soccer team, PSV.
During my professional life, I have travelled the world. It is with great pleasure I look back at all the different people I met, most of them very friendly and hospitable, whether it was in the Arabic world, Latin America, Africa, the Far East or the western countries. Except for a 6 months stay in Sydney Australia, we only lived in my hometown Eindhoven.
