Family leaves earthquake problems behind and builds new life in Portugal

Kirsten de Jong, Pieter Bouwman and sons Reinald (10) and Meindert (8) took four days to cover the 2800 kilometer journey from Siddeburen to Albufeira in Portugal. With a full trailer they could travel about 80 kilometers per hour. “That also has something. You realize it’s real. That you go to a different kind of life,” De Jong says on the phone.
