About Me

** I won't be able to rate swap between July 18th- August 18th due to a holiday**

I'm a 36-year-old, living with my husband in a large city in the south of the Netherlands.

I am a World War II reenactor for about 10 years now. Depending on the event, I play the role of a nurse or a member of the Dutch resistance. It's amazing to teach children about life during World War II and let them touch items which are normally only displayed in museums.

I'm a collector of postcards and elongated coins (pressed pennies) So if you have any pressed pennies lying around which you're willing to send to me will be rewarded with a postcard of your choice.

Always willing to do a private swap!

Comment: Thank you for the great card! The book you quoted sounds interesting!
Comment: Oh my goodness Corina, thank you for all the wonderful goodies. The envelope smelled so good with all the teas in it. I love caramel pear, I have never seen that type of tea here. I think the envelop may have been opened, it was in a plastic sleeve from the post office, but everything was in tact. I'd love to be a pen pal with you if you're interested. We can do a monthly swap. By the way I saw your favotie movie is Dirty Dancing, my husband is related to Patrick Swayze :-).
Response: Yay I'm so glad it arrived and you liked what I've sent. What a bummer the envie was opened but I'm glad they didn't took anything out. No way that's so cool he's related to Patrick Swayze. I just watched Dirty Dancing the other day, can watch it over and over. Would love to swap. Thanks for the rating and heart 💜
