My name is Annemarie and I'm a self-employed piano teacher. I live in Zwolle, a beautiful city in the Netherlands with a Medieval centre. Zwolle is located close to the IJssel, a picturesque river and branch of the Rhine.
My hobbies are playing the piano, singing, hiking, Tai-Chi, swimming, reading and traveling. And of course I love Postcrossing!
I travel a lot. I'm especially drawn to countries with lots of pure and unspoilt nature, mountains and to destinations not yet discovered by mass turism.
My favorite city is Paris, my lucky number is 1 and my favorite color golden yellow.

If you don't know what to write, may be you could answer one or more of these questions:
- what makes you happy?
- what habit, skill or quality makes you different from other people?
- as a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
- what was your favorite book when you were a child and why?
- what were your favorite toys or favorite activities when you were a child?
- what would you change in your life if you won the lottery?

I will register your postcard the day it arrives.
