Praestant-038(or Jac.) is a member in Netherlands . He has been a member for over 4 years (1,529 days).
I live in Kampen, a historical city, in it's Golden Age part of the Hanseatic League. I live here with my wife, three sons and a cat. I studied Theology/Church History in the historical cities of Utrecht and Kampen. Nowadays, I'm a stay-home dad, to take care of my three sons, I work at the Dutch mail for 4 mornings a week and I am also a writer/editor, at a magazine from the Reformed Churches. Also, I perform research on the Church History of the city of Kampen at the Theological University.
I like classical music to listen and to play the Church organ. My other great hobby is collecting stamps and coins from all over the world. My third hobby is traveling! I still haven't visited all the capitals and countries of Europe (however, I'm moving along on that list). I've also been in several countries in Asia (China, Philippines, Pakistan, Singapore, Qatar) already ... and I really love this continent!
When they're older, I want to teach my sons about our world, so these real cards are extra welcome:
- musical instruments
- maps & flags
- political factions
- statesmen, (religious) leaders, presidents, monarchs (present & past)
- policemen, firemen or other people in uniforms
- local Flora & Fauna or landscapes
- foods & recipes
- religious buildings, lighthouses, airports, harbours, bus stations, museums, palaces, parliaments, monuments, universities, etc.
- cardboard packaging
- tickets: museum, bus, train, metro, landmarks, cinema etc.
- old/antique cards
It would be nice if you could write a greeting in your own language on the card with a translation. For people not using Latin, Greek, Hebrew or Cyrillic script: can you write a transcription? I'm really interested in other languages. If you could tell me something about the place you live, that would be nice as well. To maintain the card undamaged, and the possibility to put the stamps in my album, I would appreciate a written card in an envelope, but both ways are okay to me!
Any Postcrosser visiting Kampen (area) is welcome in my home for a cup of coffee or tea.
Thank you for reading my profile and I wish Happy Postcrossing to all of you!
