FamilyV(or Verplanke) are a group of people from Netherlands . They have been members for over 1 year (447 days).
We are so happy we've found this site. This is what we have been missing for years! Finally it is exciting again when the postman comes passing by.
We are a family of four (with a boy of 7 years and a girl 10 years old) and live in a small village in the middle of the Netherlands.
Here are some suggestions of subjects on a postcard which makes us happy:
- Sanne, our girl of 9, likes insects and frogs. She also like labyrinths.
- Jasper, our boy of 7, is very interested in (anything from) China, especially typically Chinese buildings and the Chinese characters. If you know some Chinees, maybe you can teach him a new chinese word? He also likes all kind of vehicles that can drive, fly or float (or a mix of this!) and lego.
- Odo (father) likes trees (forest), beekeeping, the sea, lighthouses, old bicycles and organic buildings.
- Tineke (mother) likes aireal photo's of natural wonders from your country (like volcanoes, mountains, lakes, sea, waterfalls, forests), castles, cards with a lot of blue, celtic design and stones, black and whites, portraits, a rainbow, ricefields (sent from a country where rice grows) or anything related to agriculture, and especially a card drawn by yourself (!, even if you think you can't draw).
Please, no ad-card, unless you think we really like it.
You can choose to sent a postcard to one of us, or to everybody together.
If you don't have anything related to our interests, it's OK, because we love your messages most. You make us really happy when you write as much as possibly fits on a postcard. Tell us something about your country or about yourself, maybe what you do in the weekend. It's great to see and read something from you, from so far away. If there is any text in your own language on the postcard, please can you translate it in English? We also love (and collect) special stamps on postcards.
We like sending a postcard just as much as receiving one. It's a challenge to find the right card for everyone, although sometimes it's hard because we live in a small place.
When we started with postcrossing, we decided to stop taking part in this when we have sent and received 100 postcards. Both have arrived in meantime. We are greatfull for all the beautifull cards we've got from all over the world and we cherish them.
However, we like private swaps. Feel free to contact us to swap a postcard.
Odo, Tineke, Sanne and Jasper
