My name is Bertha. I was born and raised in Harlingen in the north of the Netherlands.
My husband and I moved to Germany in December 2016. We had the loviest 5 years, but in the end of January 2022 he passed away.
My greatest hobby is singing in a choir. I sang at the womenchoir "De Boegspetters" for almost 20 years. Here I joined also a womenchoir: "Frauenchor Mühlhausen" I love singing!
You can hear me (solo) and the womenchoir on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orMWstt2iKs
What I like:
- TOURIST CARDS the AVERAGE SIZE (10X15CM). When they are larger they do not fit into my system. I collect those cards since I was only 14, so now for half a century.
- All animals, real or drawn.
But of course all kinds of other cards are welcome too. You can take a look at my favorites to get an idea what I like, I don´t have any of them yet. As you can see I like bright colours. Looking forward to all the cards from all over the world!
Wow! My 3000th postcard registered. It was sent to Russia.
