About Maarten...

👋😃 Hello & nice to meet you!

My name is Maarten, I am 50 years of age and I live in Assen (The Netherlands). I'm divorced and father of a 22 year old son. I live in a special protected housing facility, because I'm not capable of living independent. I work daily in the forest next to my house, collecting liter and garbage that doesn't belong in the natural environment. I like to make long-distance walks through the natural countryside. There I make a lot of photographs.

I have a lot of hobbies and interests; of course postcrossing, collecting stamps and postcards. I like reading books and magazines (< “Panorama” is my favorite; a Dutch magazine for men since 1913!). I love watching supernatural horror movies and war movies. I can’t live without rock music 🎶; as loud as possible! I love to play videogames; my all-time favorite is War Robots. Furthermore, I regularly watch documentaries about history on YouTube, to feed my curiosity.

I really appreciate your postcard to be nicely written. Together with one or more equally nice stamp(s), you will absolutely make my day! 😃👍
If the front side is just as nice as the backside, your card will become a real collector’s item for me.

Please leave the printed information on the backside of the card, open and clear for me to read (info about the publisher and about the picture itself). This I think is very interesting to read!

I love 💕 maximum-cards 💕; if you send one to me, I will be happy to send a nice one back to you! The list below shows the type of cards I very much appreciate. If you don’t have any of these cards, feel free to send any card you like!

What to write?

3. Interesting knowledge or facts.

Thank you so much, and happy postcrossing!
Best wishes,
