About Ali...

I live in Leeuwarden, the capital of the province Fryslân.

I'm a mother of 2 grown-up sons (one married, one living together) and I have 3 grandchildren, 2 boys (2010 and 2021) and a girl (2012).

Since the 1th of january 2020 I'm retired as a teacher of Dutch language at a secondary vocational education in Tourism. I love to travel, specially to the less toeristic places and countries, but also like historic cities.
I played lyra in the senior group of a marching/showband, but I stopped some years ago because of problems with my arm (lymphedema after breastcancer). Every four year I'm still going to the W.M.C. in Kerkrade to watch the showbands. Now my both oldest grandchildren joined that marching/showband.
Since pandemic I'm walking every day about an hour and started knitting again.
I like watching NCIS Navy, the Big Bang Theory, the Bridge and the Killing, other thrillers and Dutch programs about Dutch girls/boys, who fall in love with a foreigner during holidays or traineeship and emigrate to their lover's country or the lovers emigrate to the Netherlands and the cultural differences they encounter then.

I love cards from postcrossing meetups, with nature, attractions, special things or holidays from your country, but also any other card is welcome.

Stay healthy and happy postcrossing to everyone.
