I'm 68 years old and I originally come from Holland. After working many years in a hospital in Italy and 20 years in Bristol, England I have now retired from working as a nurse in the hospice.
I'm married to a lovely man called Graham and I love cooking him tasty meals.
We live in a cavehouse in Andalucia, a beautiful region in southern Spain. A cavehouse is cool in the hot summer and cosy in the cold winter.
I'm interested in geology and have studied Earth Science at the university. My hobbies are cooking, crafting (scrapbooking, card making and recently Pocket Letters), reading and spending time at my computer. My blog is about Postcrossing and about our life here in Spain. I have started to learn lace making (bobbin lace). Any lacemakers out there?
I have a 43 year old son in Italy and 3 stepchildren in the UK of similar ages. (+8 grandchildren)
I love to get any postcard from your country. If your country has royalty I'd love a photo of members of the royal family. Especially the Dutch royal family (because I come from Holland originally).
Please look at my favourites if you don't know what to send.
Postcards I particularly like:
Beautiful and/or nude women
Black and white photos
Anything to do with books or reading (I love Ladybird books)
Anything food related.
UNESCO world heritage sites
Pretty windows or doors
Old fashioned travel posters.
I'm not keen on multiviews and please no home made cards unless you are a gifted artist or a good photographer.
I have a Flickr account where i upload all the postcards I receive and also the ones I send. I even upload nice stamps. Feel free to have a look. (but I haven't updated it for a long time) https://www.flickr.com/photos/113208606@N08/?
Thank you. Looking forward to receiving your card and reading about you and/or what you have been doing lately.
