Yes I passed my motor driving exam! Now I am touring the area and buying cards for postcrossing at the places I visit :-)
For cards we love surprises. Forget the traditional tourist card; we think they are boring!
What I would looooove to get is a story. You sent me a card and tell me the story behind it. Could be something everyone in your town knows, could be a personal story. It can’t be long because the cards are small (too small I think sometimes). Is there a story behind a cup of coffee? Or the famous church downtown? Tell me!
We want colour - humour - funny - politics - the environment - original cards - food - Dragons - Cards on Books/Book covers - Card with recipes! - Panorama’s - Local food/drink stuff - Map cards - UNESCO sites - camping - travelling - wildlife - humour - coffee - sushi - lasagna - chemistry - biology - film - TV - crafts – Fjord horses – Groenendaelers.
We would LOVE to get the Milk-carton postcard from lots of different countries. Or any other food package you think is fun.
Cooking is a hobby so cards on food or recipes make us happy. Is there something special to see or to know about where you live, we want to know. Do send us an Ad-card if it’s funny/original and tell us why you like it. And translate if it’s not in English/German/Dutch. Recently we discovered postcard books. They are a lot cheaper than single postcards and you get several cards on a favourite theme or artist. We also like to send seasonal cards. Valentine cards in February, X-mas cards in December, and holiday cards bought while on holiday etc. etc.
Please no envelopes.
I was a secretary, but now we am out of a job. I met Adrian on a dating site 12 years ago. When we got together we each had three sons, so together we have 6 sons. Only the youngest one, aged 15 still lives with us, the other sons are 30-26-26-24-23 years old and have moved out. Our first grandson was born January 2013 so now we are proud grandparents.
Recently I got my motor driving license, so very soon we go touring on the motorbike. Husband has been driving one since he was 18. Other hobbies are photography, cooking, blogging, travelling. Scotland is our favourite destination! England, Ireland, Belgium and Germany come second.
In the days before the Internet era I used to write with friends. I loved the sound of a (thick) letter on the doormat. However, the possibility of sending and receiving six e-mails from my friend in the South of France on the same day has it charm. We live in Zwolle, a small medieval town in the North of the Netherlands. Please note that I am not from Holland. Only two provinces in the west are called Holland. The correct name of my country is The Netherlands. My husband is from Holland so he’s not bothered. Please, watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eE_IUPInEuc
I will not make a list of expired cards. I think it's silly and useless.
