About Maarten...

Hello & nice to meet you!

🏤 📨 My name is Maarten, 52 years old, and I live in Assen (The Netherlands). Assen is a small city, and also the capital of the province (that is Drenthe; the least populated province of my country). I'm a single father of a 23 year old son. I live in a special housing facility, because I'm not capable of living independent. I work daily in the forest next to my house. I like to make long-distance walks through the natural countryside.

My hobbies are of course postcrossing, collecting stamps and postcards (🙄 what a surprise!). I can’t live without rock music; as loud as possible! Almost every day I watch movies, series and documentaries about history, crime, biographies, WW2, animals and stand up comedy. I like reading and gaming a lot too.

Since that I’m an avid stamp collector, I prefer to receive your card in an envelope, so I can take the stamps without damaging the card (and the card will be in better shape too!). If you include one or more stamps in the envelope, you will definitely make my day! (please don’t do this if you can’t afford it!). In case it’s not possible using an envelope; don’t worry, just send the card in the usual way.

I appreciate it a lot, when the card is neatly written and/or decorated. I think it’s a big plus, when both sides of the card are looking great! I prefer to receive postcards from an existing publisher. I have the strange habit, that I’m always interested in the publisher’s printed text, on the backside of the card.

🤔📰📝 What to write? Please write me about curious things that happened in your neighborhood. Interesting facts or jokes are very nice also. Whatever you think is worth mentioning. What is your favorite food and drink?

I would like to receive one of the following type of cards. If you have another kind of card in your mind; no problem, please send that one! 👍

All the best; stay healthy and happy!
