About Me

I'm a 35 year old teacher, living with my husband and our bird Tiko in a large city in the south of the Netherlands called Tilburg. Tilburg is known for it's 10-day-long funfair,held in July each year.

I am a World War II re-enactor 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 childeren 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 laying 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!
