About Maarten...

👋😃 Hello & nice to meet you!

My name is Maarten, I am 51 years of age and I live in Assen (The Netherlands). I'm divorced and father of a 23 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.

My hobbies are of course postcrossing, collecting stamps and postcards. I like to watch 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 like stand up comedy a lot too!

I prefer to receive your card in an envelope, blank and unwritten, with a small (or big) letter next to it. This way, I can remove the stamp without damaging the contents. Write to me about who you are, and what’s going on in your mind; this really means a lot to me. As a collector, this is the ideal combination for me (a mint card, a personal letter and the stamp!).
However, you are free to do it any way YOU like, and I will appreciate it just as much; long live freedom!

Here I give you some ideas about the cards I like to receive. These are only hints. If you have your own favorite card in mind; please send that one!

* Dinosaurs
* Nostalgic cards
* Maximum-Cards
* Mushrooms
* Paintings
* Gothic style
* Fairytales
* Trees
* Flowers
* National parks / Landscapes
* All kinds of animal-wildlife
* Birds
* Cards with coffee and/or chocolate
* Turist cards (single- and multi-view)
* Village or city views
* Monumental buildings (castles, churches, etcetera)
* Greetings from...
* Keep Calm and...
* Retro-cards (or genuinely old cards)
* Children in folcloric costumes
* Funny / hilaric cards
* Cartoons

What to write?
1. Please write a good joke (anything, the sky is the limit!) 😉
2. An interesting proverb or saying, that carries wisdom.
3. Interesting knowledge or facts.

Thank you so much, and happy postcrossing!

All the best,
