Postcrossing Supporter Postcrossing Ambassador

About Marjon...

Hi there! Welcome to my profile! I’m Marjon, 37 years old, born,raised and still living in the town of Geldrop, next to Eindhoven. Here I work as a secretary for Von Reth Contra-Expertise. We provide help for affected parties with loss adjusting for insurance purposes.

Dutch Postcrossers can know me from my blogs at, an awesome webshop with cards from my friends Danny and Christa. I also figured in the PostNL (Dutch national postal company) campaign of Postcrossing. So if you want to hear my Dutch voice with Brabantine accent: just Google PostNL and Postcrossing.

About me. I am a woman who is quite modest, I don’t like to brag about myself. I always want to look at two sides of the story and have almost always a substantied opinion. It doesn’t matter if it’s about criminals, dictators or just the taste of a biscuit… Feel free to tell me if you're fan OR enemy of people like Putin or Kim Jong Un. I won't judge you.

I also have a hard sense of humour. I always treat people with respect as long as they respect me. And yes, that can go along with a good dose of sarcasm and even irony.

Music. When you see me, you won’t think I’m a rockchick. I love especially Scandinavian hardrock/metal like Eclipse, Ammunition and even Lordi. Aerosmith is also a pleasure of mine, just like old bands like Dire Straits. But I can also appreciate a good soul-, jazz- or bluesnight.

One of my main hobbies is visiting zoos. I love animals, because they are purely honest. In zoos, lemurs, primates and other apes are among my favorites. At home, I really love cats and dogs, especially ginger cats (we have two brothers, Tim and Max) and boxers (we have one called Joris). Especially cards with boxers are appreciated, but also cards from zoos (even the ones from the Netherlands).

I also love cooking and baking. And food. We are blessed with a small gourmet market close to my work and they have the best Vietnamese food from the whole region there! But I also like other kinds of food off course (that’s why I’m quite big)

And also not very femine to some people: I love playing and watching The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES). I love to watch randomizer contests like NMG and Keysanity and I wish I could play like ALG Andy, ChristosOwen or Xelna. Or commenting like Patty and DrBobtastic. For now, I am just a vanilla player, with a record from 3 hours and 15 minutes in a 100% speedrun (well, speed...).

Besides all the things I mentioned before, I am a information junkie: I love all sorts of information, but I’m not particular from the girly side. Cars and science are two of my favorite things.

Just some other notes:
- I don't favorite my received cards, my favorites are a broad selection of what I like in general.
- I don't scan my received cards.
- If possible, please send cards without envelope.

And the most important one:
