About Brenda...

Hello everybody,

My name is Brenda and I am living together with Matthijs in the capital of our 12th province Flevoland called Lelystad.
At the moment I am in between jobs. I used to work at a tour operator in Amsterdam. I love to organise holidays for our clients. If I have time I am travelling also around the globe.

my hobby's are travelling, cycling, reading and geocaching.

On the back of the postcard I love to receive tips what not to miss in your city/village/country or maybe a book you advice to read. A beautiful drawing is also nice!

If possible I love a colourful stamp or stamp of dogs, ice bears and other animals on the card or envelop.

You make me smile even more with below postcards:
- illustrated(drawn/painted) Polar bear, Panda or Hippo cards(no photo cards)
Here you can get an idea of the cards I love to receive.

I almost forgot self-made cards are more than welcome.
Have a look at my favourites to see what kind of cards I like as well. Most of the cards in my favourites I haven't yet received.

I have ailurophobie but cards of cats are oké

I REALLY REALLY DON'T like cards which have too much dark colours or typical tourist/cityview cards. So please if possible try not to send this types of cards.

To prevent double cards you can look at my albums which cards I have received via Postcrossing, Facebook and Instagram.

If you want to make Matthijs happy. Send him a card instead of me with a game. (f.i. Where is Wally/Waldo?, Lali, find the difference, Labyrinth, Sudoku etc.)
