My profile is set on inactive because I'm busy moving to the other side of our small country. I'll only participate in a forum RR. That's why my wishes are specified.
Postcrossing, I love it !
It gives me so much joy and friendship, brings me a new view on art, culture, traditions, countries. I've met many people in person, but of course more through writing. It's so amazing the internet gives us the opportunity to get connected to people from different countries. For me every card is a little glimpse of friendship across borders, languages and cultures.
Please, write me a bit about your life, your day, whatever you want to tell...I'm looking forward to it. Write me about moving :)
I'm living in Apeldoorn, in the middle/east of the Netherlands. I used to work as a pastoral counselor in a Mental Health Institute. Now I'm retired.
I'm ging to move to Rijswijk, a little town near The Hague. The Hague is my place of birth. And I love the coast !
I like many things....photography, reading, cooking, baking, architecture, history,art, culture,sewing. Life isn't long enough ;)
I took a course about the history of Russia.
Russian postcrossers, if you have cards about history, long long ago or more recent, I would love them.
I like languages. Dutch, English, German and French are languages I can speak, read and write. I took a course in Russian. Too short - I can read it a little.
