About Gerlinde...


I'm Gerlinde from the Netherlands. I'm 41 years old, married and I have 2 children. A boy, 9 years old and a girl, she's 8 years old. We live in a small village between Amsterdam and Utrecht surrounded by lakes.

In my free time I like to sit on my red couch with a cup of tea and a nice book, bake a pie with the apples from our little apple tree or buy a dress (somehow I only wear dresses). Under the apple tree stands my little free library. Walking in the woods or running through the country are more favourite activities of mine. I also like travelling in real (I met my husband in China many years ago) or through postcards I receive. Music and going to concerts is another passion of mine. And I love receiving snailmail and writing letters, buying and sending postcards!

Here you can see most of my received postcards sorted by subject: https://www.flickr.com/photos/129534636@N08/sets/

Or see my favourites... But i'm happy with every postcard you'll send to me! :-) It's just like a little gift in my mailbox!

If you don't know what to write, I would love to read about your favourite music, books or tea or something about you and your daily life.

Have a nice day!
