I'm living in Apeldoorn, in the middle/east of the Netherlands. It's a nice and quiet place to live. I used to work as a pastoral counselor in a Mental Health Institute.
I like many things....photography, reading, cooking, baking, architecture, history,art, culture. Life isn't long enough ;)
I'm born in The Hague, went to school in Gouda. I studied in Utrecht, worked in Lelystad, Vlaardingen, Apeldoorn. (Cards from those places, including Scheveningen and Reeuwijk, I like a lot.)
It's so amazing the internet gives us the opportunity to get connected to people from different countries. I love it! For me every card is a little glimpse of friendship across borders, languages and cultures. Postcrossing is more than just sending cards !
I like it when you tell something more about yourself! Just about your day, about what you like, where you live, whatever you want to tell...
I like languages. Dutch, English, German and French are languages I can speak, read and write.
