About Me

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

Find me on Instagram: janneke_ van _oorschot

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 one of the many podcasts I listen to, 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, Anne with an E, Lost, The Walking dead, Grace and Frankie, 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: Received your booklover's swap letter today! Was so excited to see an envelope all the way from Fuerteventura! I've read some of the books you recommended, but am also adding a few I haven't read to my list! And I'm a fellow chai gea lover, so am excited to try the Yogi Chai! The bookmarks were also great and will be put to good use! Vielen Dank!
