My name is Connie. My boyfriend Ben and I live in a tiny village in the centre of the Netherlands. We have two chickens, a very handsome rooster and the very best next thing to an animal: a fluff koala teddy bear named KoalaBert. 🐨 He has many adventures (no I'm not mad 😉).
I like making photographs, I like animated movies (love Disney, DreamWorks…).
I absolutely love traveling; to see nature and wildlife above and below water. On my last trip I saw turtles!! When I'm not actually traveling, I'm talking about my last or next trip. 😉
Last year my sister and I joined a Spanish class. Estudio español. Now we are going to learn some Salsa dancing! 👯♀️💃
May 2018 I entered Postcrossing. I love it and can get very enthusiastic because of it. Haha. I even got a friend to join! 😊
I’m buying postcards everywhere. This persuit of pretty postcards actually brings me to places I’ve never been before and makes me learn new things about my own country.
I find postcrossing on travel mode also awesome! 🌎
Besides sending postcards, I love receiving them! Connecting with people through postcards, I think is really amazing. I appreciate every effort you put in the postcard you are going to send me, a stranger, living miles away! Thank you in advance! 😊
I must admit, I am developing some preferences…
I like a card that shows something about where you come from. Like:
- a beautiful scenery or landscape,
- maybe a famous or typical building (like a castle, a farmhouse, a library, ruins etc.),
- a touristy "hotspot",
- a national / local festival,
- a famous person from your country (like your idol from highschool, your fave singer/actor/dj or royalty),
- an animal from your country (like a koala from Australia),
- or maybe a card that shows the characters of your favourite childrens book...
just something that's typical for your homecountry / your town / your end of the world.
A collectable card? Yes please!
Postallove ‘Greetings from…’.I have already received: Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Belgium, Ukraine, Germany, Canada, France, USA, Italy and Czech Republic
Large Letters Greetings From US States: Florida, Nevada, New York, North Carolina and California.
I like pretty stamps too...
On my favorites wall, you will find stuff I like from the Postcrossing Gallery. I have not received those cards, it is kind of a wishlist.
But, just so you know, any card from you will make my day! Surprise me. 😊
No clue what to write? If you want you can tell, what made you smile today? What do you see when you look out of your living room window? Why did you choose this particular postcard... Or what things I should see or do when I visit your hometown/country.
UPDATE: I'm pregnant, whaaaaaa!! We're expecting a baby girl end of November. 🥰 Do you have any wishes for the baby or some funny memories to share about your own kid/grandkid/niece/nephew/or other? 👶
It will be nice to meet you! I wish you an awesome day!
