Annedread(or Marieke) is a member in Netherlands . She has been a member for over 2 years (742 days).
My name is Marieke (or Anne, if you prefer).
I live with my husband and 10-year-old son in a village called Doorwerth.
I used to work in childcare but have been a full-time mother/housewife for the last couple of years.
I'm a vegetarian and an activist (mainly environmental and human/animal rights issues) and my hobbies include visiting museums and concerts, Tai Chi, reading, listening to music and spending time outdoors (spotting wildlife, hiking, camping, etc.).
I've travelled quite a lot. I've lived in London, Wales and Israel and have backpacked through places like Sri Lanka, Costa Rica, Australia and Indonesia. Now, with a child and a single-income household, I have to find other ways for international experiences. Postcrossing is a great solution!
I love the element of surprise so anything you want to send me will be much appreciated.
I feel rather disappointed when I read profiles of people who put a whole page of things they love/hate and what -not- to send. After all a postcard is just a piece of cardboard, but it's the thought and time that goes into choosing it, writing on it and mailing it that makes it so special.
Whether you write me a quote, a poem, a bit of information, make me a drawing or whatever; as long as it tells me something about you, I'm happy. If you really don't know what to put on your card: Give me a song. One song only, that means a lot to you. I will listen to it, then I will know you much better.
But... please, no envelopes! I plan to put the cards on a wall, showing the written side, and I'd like to see the postage stamps on it.
Could you please date your card? Thanks!
