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, teaching, learning, swapping and writing.

When you see me walking outside, I could be listening to music or my favourite podcast SYSK, geocaching or playing Pokémon 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, Belinda Bauer, Kiera Cass, 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. I like writing too, join NaNoWriMo every year and am working on my third novel. www.jannekevanoorschot.nl


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, The Queen's Gambit, Vampire Diaries, 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 è bella, Sound of Music, The book thief, Harry Potter, 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.

Things I like

I'd love to receive postcards and other things about

TV shows and movies, like Harry Potter, GoT and series named earlier ;-)

Books and reading,


'Keep calm...',

Unicorns, mermaids,

Nijntje (Miffy), Snoopy (Peanuts), Jip en Janneke

Soccer (team, player, stadium, clublogo)

GF (already have: ByanNur, Belarus, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Germany, Japan, Latvia, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, USA)

Tea and sweets,

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 ;-)

I'd like to receive new and surprising TEAS from all over the world. Especially strange flavours and Christmas teas!

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: Thank you for your postcard, and for writing in Spanish :) Unfortunately my Spanish is limited so it's faster and easier for me to write in English still. Learning more every day though :) Have a great weekend!

Comment: Dear Gaucha, thank you very much for you delicous tea (I love chai tea! ^.^) and the amazing postcard from egypt. I'm soo happy with it! Your swap not only made me smile, but grin widely. XD I never went to egypt, but I would like to travel one day! First I didn't had money while being a student and in january 2020 I travelled to New Zealand to visit a friend, started to like such journeys and than came covid-19. So it still feels like I'm in the beginning of discovering the world. *g* Stay safe and healthy! Yours, Maxi
Response: Hi Maxi! Thanks for your wonderful reaction, made me grin widely too ;-) The world is waiting for you, it just takes a bit longer! Best wishes!

I love that show & I have watched it on netflix so many times, that I lost count, Ha! The books you've read, I will for sure look them up. As like you, I love Witches, vampires, faeries and zombies, hee hee! I also love Science Fiction and I've been reading a lot of those as of late, about mystics & magic & have read one series so far called The Outcast Chronicles by Rowena Cory Daniells. There are 3 books in the series. Are these ever so darn good! If you like things like Mystics & Magic, you would love these. I have moved on to another series called The book of the order by Philippa Ballantine & there are 4 books in this series of Mystics & magic. I have book one read already & now on book 2. So far good with these. Thank you very much for joining my swap.
