About Me

I'm Dutch but live on one of the Spanish Canary Islands, located 100 km. of the African coast.

Here I enjoy life, walking, swimming, biking, reading, writing, teaching, learning and swapping. When you see me walking outside, I could be listening to music or my favourite podcast SYSK, geocaching or playing PokΓ©mon Go or Ingress.

I love all kinds of music, especially Jason Mraz, Juanes, Julieta Venegas and reggaeton and music from the 80's, rock, pop. I also love to read, like music, I'm into all kinds of books. I like The time traveller's wife (Niffenegger), Pillars of the earth (Follet) Harry Potter, Stephen King, Dan Brown, Virginia Andrews. I love to read something I didn't pick out and be surprised. Reading is like escaping, living other lives, experiencing other adventures and learning new things, thinking new thoughts.

Hobbies

I'm never bored. Too much to do, too little time. I love teaching, but also learning. I like learning new languages and writing. I would say eating (chocolate and other sweet stuff) and drinking tea is a hobby of mine too...

Bingewatching series is one of my favorite pass-times. I love series like The Gilmore Girls, Lost, The Walking dead, Game of Thrones, Dr. Who, The Big Bang Theory, Big Little Lies, The Good Doctor, Stranger things, Glee, Friends, Arrested Development, Lucifer, Jane the virgin. I really love NETFLIX ;-) Films I like: Hair, Love actually, La vita Γ¨ bella, Sound of Music, The book thief, Harry Potter, Avatar, Dirty Dancing, Notting Hill, Titanic, Shawshank Redemption...

I really like sports too. I watch soccer every week. I used to go to all the games of NAC Breda and had a seasonsticket to PSV Eindhoven. I like to watch other sports too and walk, swim, bike and play darts.

Since joining postcrossing and swapbot I absolutely enjoy sending and receiving postcards, letters, flip books, zines and ATC's. Making a special something like a mini zine or flip book for someone gives me just as much (or even more!) fun than receiving something. So recently I'm really into all beautiful paper things I can find and washi tape and stuff like that. It's addicting!

Things I like

I'd love to receive cards about

books and reading,

Tea and sweets, chocolate,

Gorjuss,

'Keep calm...',

unicorns, mermaids,

series like Harry Potter, Stranger Things, The Walking dead, etc.

I don't care if you send it naked or in an envelope, whatever you like, but I like both sides equally, the card you pick for me and whatever you feel like writing on it ;-)

Other things that make me happy:

stationary,

washi sample,

stickers,

(Funny flavored) tea,

letters,

Ravenclaw,

my favorite colors purple, turquoise, pink, black and yellow.

and surprises!

Please note!

The downside of living on this small and distant island is that mail takes a while, so please be patient. I know it's hard, believe me, I do! But trust me, it will arrive and if not, of course I will resend, but please have patience...

Comment: I apologize for the very late rating, I have received the postcard much earlier - but I there were some mail issues back then, than I hadn't been at home and wasn't logging into swap-bot either. I would like to make it up to you and send mail to you if you would accept my apologies and send me a mailing address. Sincerely sorry and hope you understand.

Comment: oh, what a pocket full of poetry sweetness! I totally enjoyed discovering everything bit by bit and every piece made my heart sing. I feel grateful for the Druid's Prayer. How often did i listen to this famous Cure song! A great idea to add this! After so many years it was high time to finally pay close attention to the lyrics. I love the van Gogh postcard, too. Huge thank you!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. Wonderful to know you loved receiving this swap as much as I loved making it for you πŸ˜€
