My name is Corno and I'm a history teacher in the beautiful historic city of Utrecht. I feel very privileged to be able to cycle through ages of history everyday on my way to school.
I love travelling. I like to go places in person but also in my imagination through literature, art, exotic food and drinks and the people I meet. My favorite destinations are historic cities packed with art and monuments like Rome, Paris and Berlin. Fortunately my work allows me to visit these cities regularly and I know them quite well.
As a child I collected stamps and coins from countries all over the world. For hours I could go through my collections and wonder about the places and countries the items came from. For me postcrossing is like collecting little mindtravels.
I am very curious about what you want to tell me. Maybe you'd like to share your ideas about current affairs with me or something about a book you just read or a beautifull painting you just saw. Did something or someone surprise you today? Why did you pick this postcard for me?
I like many kinds of cards, surprise me! I like to laugh, so if you manage to do that with a postcard, that would make me very happy. I am also very fond of beautiful men and other pieces of art. If you want to send me something to do with history then I prefer historic photographs or single historic objects and archeology instead of cityviews or historic buildings.
I upload all the cards I recieve and give the stamps to my mother who collects them. So, if you have special edition stamps I would be very gratefull.
