About Catharina...

Please use only the languages mentioned in my profile, or add the translation.

I'm very sad when I cannot read your message on the card.


Hi, my name is Catharina, I live in Maastricht, a beautiful city in the south of the Netherlands.

I love to get to know people from around the world. When I go on vacation, it is NEVER for sun-bathing. Most of the time I'm strolling around in a village or city, contemplating the architecture, looking at all things culturally interesting, enjoying the very different food and of course... trying to get acquainted with the people there. Oh yes, and take lots of photographs.

At home I love to read, preferably Fantasy-SF and novels based on history, like the series about Ramses by Christian Jacq.
A big hobby is also playing on the computer (casual games, not action) and of course look TV. Especially documentaries about nature, science and culture, and comedies.
Also I like making embroideries, mainly patterns of very small cross-stitches with lots of colours, and solving cryptograms.
I wish I could say I also spend a lot of time in my garden, but alas, since I live in an appartment, my only garden is in my dreams. Of course there are quite a number of plants in my appartment and also on the balcony. And because there is a limited space, I only have a little bird as a pet. To my opinion, a bird's song is the most beautiful music that exists.

* I'm a stamp collector, so I LOVE envelopes with beautiful stamps on it! (^-^) (Or in it. ;D)

* My Chinese horoscope-sign is the Dragon, so it would be great to receive some beautiful cards with dragons. My western horoscope sign is the Capricorn.

* But of course other cards are also very welcome, especially if they are related to my hobbies or interests!

You could also have a look at my favourites - it's a mixture of cards that I already received and other cards, but it gives you an idea of what kind of cards I like.

If you don't have a card to match my preferences, please don't worry. There are more special cards than I can think of, so surprise me. :)

Thanks for reading my profile.
Happy postcrossing!

Greetings, Catharina
