About Gerlinde...


I'm Gerlinde from the Netherlands. I'm 42 years old, married and I have 2 children. A boy, 10 years old and a girl, she's 9 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. I’m a big fan of Radiohead. And I love receiving snailmail and writing letters, buying and sending postcards!

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! My only request is to not send me postcards with images of meat, I’m a vegetarian 🌱

If you don't know what to write, I would love to read about your favourite music, books or tea or what the most beautiful or unusual place is were you have ever swum.

Have a nice day!
