""I received a beautiful Christmas postcard from Maria in Finland dd 17th December 2013, but I don’t know why. There was no ID on the card. Maria, are you waiting for a swap? Please tell me your address in a personal message.""
I am 68 years old, female, married, 2 children, 3 grandchildren.
I live in the city Arnhem nowadays, but I was born in a family of fishermen in the village Scheveningen at the shore.
As a teenager I joined a group of nature explorers (CJN). At our walks we saw many birds and wild flowers and I learned to recognize the birds on their sound (well, at least some of them). I worked a few years as a teacher, than married and got two sons.
Folk dancing was one of my favourite hobbies. I stopped dancing at my 54e, but I‘m still interested in all people of the world, their culture, national costumes, music, stories and traditions.
There are a lot of things more I’m interested in, such as travelling, culture, architecture, history, nature, nonfiction books. Of course I am fond of postcrossing, postcards and stamps, but also scrapbooking, photography, crafting.
I like any kind of postcard, but really favour:
Wild birds, wild animals.
Villages, towns, cities.
Castles, places of worship, bridges.
Seasons greetings like Christmas, Easter and Whitsun. It would be nice to receive Seasons greetings from different countries.
National costumes, handicrafts, traditions.
Or anything you like yourself.
I prefer cards measuring 10cm X 15cm. No greeting card in an envelope please.
If your card is delayed, send me a message + the ID!
Happy postcrossing to all of you!
Rietje de Jong.
