About Maarten...

👋😃 Hello & nice to meet you! 🇳🇱

My name is Maarten, 53 years old, and I live in Assen, The Netherlands. Assen is a small city, and also the capital of the province Drenthe - the least populated province in my country. I'm a single father of a 24 year old son.

I live in a small apartment for one resident only. Many people live here in two big buildings, under 24/7 supervision of a foundation, helping disabled people of any kind. So, it’s a colorful group of people, and I love to be living here.

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, human interest, wildlife and stand up comedy. I like reading and gaming a lot too.

>> Message to philatelists (stamp-collectors): next to stamps, I love FDC’s, sheets, maximum-cards, blocks, souvenir-sheets, etc, etc, very much. If you want to send me anything special in an envelope; that would absolutely make my day! Of course, I will be very happy to send you something equally interesting in return!

If you are creative, and passionate in making your own card; feel free to do so. I’m always interested in other people’s creativity.

🤔 What to write? Interesting facts, jokes or intriguing local news is what I like. Whatever you think is worth mentioning. What is your favorite food and drink?

Below are some examples of cards that make me smile.You can also send me a card that you are enthusiastic about.

* 🖼 🧑‍🎨 Paintings

🤗 Thank you very much in advance!

Faithfully yours,
