What a surprise: Like most of you I love a full mail box. I love swapping postcards, fb's, teabags, bookmarks, notebooks, little chocolates, etc. See my wishlist below. I'm snail mailing since my youth. Serious penpals are welcome. I don't like penpal collectors.
I'm luckily married and I'm so happy with our kitten Merlot. Since November 2010 I have a cat again after many years. It's a real joy to have a cat at home. Sometimes he's an angel (see picture) but sometimes a real little devil, like cats should be ;-)
I love learning languages. My native language is Dutch, but you can write or contact me also in English, French, Italian and German. Since 6 years I'm studying Italian for pleasure, so I'm interested in all Italian related subjects: Italian food, culture, monuments, tourism etc..
Key words: cats, nature, drinking tea, nature, medieval castles, vampires, fairies, books, writing, Art Nouveau, the colour purple, wine & dine, chocolates etc...

Drinking tea is always a relaxing moment for me. I love most green, black and herbal teas;
FAVOURITE TEA :
- Green tea: Sencha and Matcha. - Raspberry tea (Raspberry tea from Bigelow or Tetley are great) - Mint tea - Verbena - Rosehip and Hibiscus - especially my husband loves it a lot. He drinks it every morning. Favourite tea brands : Damman, Harney and Sons, Celestial Seasonings, Messmer, Teekanne, Elephant (French brand) RECENT FAVE: chocolate tea with raspberry from Celestial Seasonings. I can't find it here. Normally I'm not into chocolate flavoured teas because I prefer to eat chocolate or drinking hot chocolate but this chocolate raspberry tea is really delicious with a great smell. DISLIKE : NO STRAWBERRY TEA ! NO VANILLA TEA ! I hate strawberry tea and vanilla flavoured tea. I love to eat the fruit and I like vanilla in yoghurt and ice, but I really dislike these flavours in tea.
ALLERGIES: I drink most herbal teas but I'm allergic to : - Dandelion - Daisies - Fennel - Cinnamon (recent allergy unfortunately)
BEDTIME teas I'm still looking for the ultimate sleeping tea, so if someone has a good recipe? My favorite sleeping tea so far is Sleepy time from Celestial Seasonings.
UPDATE: Food allergies: Since 27 March 2013 I know I have some food allergies and intolerances: NO Milk, Sheep milk, yoghurt, egg, honey, almonds, pear, banana, gluten
Favorite themes and images for POSTCARDS, bookmarks and notebooks: - CATS - books - medieval castles - landscapes - mountains - dancers - art reproductions - architecture - gothic themes - vampires - fairies - fountains, waterfalls - Italy

Mi piace le cartoline e segnilibri con fotografie della citta e monumenti o anche con testi o espressione in italiano. Anche amiche di penna Italiane sono benvenute. Grazie !!
To all other swappers : I'm interested in all Italian related subjects : tourism, monuments, sites, history, cinema, food, wine etc... So even if you don't speak Italian or don't live in Italy but you have Italian postcards or bookmarks you can send them always to me. Grazie !!!
