Who and why

Who am I?

My name is Jan Schippers. I live in Balk, Friesland in the Netherlands and have worked for over 27 years in IT. A number of years ago, I also started developing websites for small and medium-sized companies, clubs, foundations and private individuals.


My wife and I have been keen hikers and cyclists for years. We’ve hiked numerous long-distance trails, regional trails and other paths and cycled many cycle routes.
Time and again we encountered the same problem, namely an easy way of finding a place to stay overnight en route.
This problem has been answered by building the websites WandelenOvernachten.nl and FietsenOvernachten.nl.
The website means a campsite, B&B, cabin or hotel can be quickly found on many hiking trails and cycle routes.
Find overnight accommodation easily and continue your way refreshed.
