About Marina...

Hello dear postcrosser,

I am a 57 years young woman, living in a small rural village in the beautiful eastern part of the Netherlands. I'm married and we've got two adult children.
I'm a technician, and I'm very much interested in technical stuff. Especially when it's electrical. My passion is to interest young children in technics. I love it when I see their happy faces when they've worked so hard and then finally it works.
I love walking in the woods, on the beach and in the dunes of The Netherlands. And I love walking in the mountains (alas we don't have any serious ones in the Netherlands). I love to walk and to make bicycle tours in our neighbourhood. We've recently moved to another region and there's plenty to see and to explore! I love to do geocaching during my walks and cycle tours.
I like musea. I love reading a good book, and I love watching a good movie. I love nature. I love history (if you could get me a postcard about some specific period in history, you would make me a very happy person). And I love Postcrossing.

I like lots of things. Surprising things. Unusual things. I love to learn new things. Try me!
Please leave an interesting story on the postcard that you send me. Tell me why you sent me that specific postcard, or tell me something about the picture on the postcard. Write me something special about it that I can't find in the tourist guides! Tell me something about you: who what person are you, what do you love, what are your dreams? Tell me an interesting story about the place you live that I can't find on the Internet! It's just the small things in life that matter. You'll make my day!

Just one urgent request: please handwrite the postcard yourself, and don't pass my name and adress to some organization to do it for you. I like to keep things private.

I'm eagerly looking forward to receiving your postcard!

Something about the dutch postal system:
Most adresses in The Netherlands contain the name of a road or a street, followed by a number. The number is pointing out the house. If the number is followed by a letter there is mostly
1. more apartments in a block/flat, or
2. houses in a street that have been built in between other houses that were already there before.
Postal numbers in The Netherlands have four digits and two letters, narrowing in your location. The first two numbers give the postal region, the third and fourth number narrow it down to the village or part of the city one lives in. The letters, at last, narrow it down to the street and to a certain block of houses/apartments.
The combination of postal code and the number (eventually follwed by the letter) of the house/apartment is unique!

Thank you Bokmorten from Norway for your idea and the invitation to follow your idea in this!

Happy Postcrossing!
