This is Barbara van Erp (52), an online entrepreneur, magazine maker and the editor-in-chief of Saar Magazine. She lives with her husband Thomas, who is a comedian, and their two sons in the heart of Amsterdam. It can be chaotic at times but is always fun. Happily, Barbara can simply cycle to work, which is her second home. What does she do on the weekend to relax from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? And what is it like to live in the centre of Amsterdam with two children? You can hear the answers in this video from the ESSENZA moments series, which we filmed at the homes of different women from ESSENZA. Watch Barbara's video here.
