Welcome to my profile. My name is Jeannette (with double N).
Born and raised in Gouda (known for its cheese). We moved in 1996 to the quiet middle part of the Netherlands. In July 2021 we moved to Zeeland to enjoy life at the coast. My avatar is an aerial photo of our new home Sint-Annaland.
Married for over 30 years, no kids (by choice). I love peace and quiet. I love animals and nature. We used to rescue cats, over 25 of them got a good home. We kept 7 of them. Sadly we lost them all over the years.
I have traveled a lot in my younger years:
UK, Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Germany, Romania, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Canary Islands, Portugal, Madeira, Seychelles, China, Indonesia, Thailand, USA (New York and Utah), Venezuela, Brazil, Dominican Republic.
I love animals, jigsaw puzzles, reading (literary thrillers), listen to music, taking long walks, and watching Netflix (like Stranger Things, Casa de Papel, all Scandinavian thrillers).
I love sports (watching): Tennis (Roger Federer), football (Ajax), F1 (Max Verstappen).

A few words about adding to favorites: I will add to favorites both cards I have received and cards that I haven't. If you want to make me happy with one of those, please check that I'm not on the 'to' side :)
I am an atheist so:
❌ Please NO RELIGIOUS texts or cards of any kind!
Also I am not a fan of Disney cartoons, movies, celebraties or royal families. Save them for those who like them.
I'm looking forward to receive your card and .. even more than that I hope you write something on it (+ DATE ! !).
