THE BALLERINA
FLIGHT ATTENDANT



SOPHIA

Sophi has had a fantastic professional
career! First she was the ballerina 
that took a job as an airline stewardess! 
Then she raised her family with husband 
Eddy having had his career at the control tower 
at Maastricht International Airport. 
They have two grown children, Yuri and Lara. 
Now the van den Heuvelīs have a successful 
B & B business in beautiful Limbricht in 
Holland!


Below is newspaper article about the Ballerina Stewardess! The house where Sophia and Eddy have their boarding business is commonly known as the Game House (old timeīs casino) and the heading of the article says: "Come sleep in the Ballet Hall of the Game House!"
