My name is Mariska, I live in Utrecht in the Netherlands with my husband Gilbert and our cat Jilles. I work as a ScrumMaster at an IT department of a government institute where we develop websites in Drupal.
I love to travel, I have been to many places all over the world, but I also still have a big wishlist of places to go to.
In 2016 we did a tour around North-England and Scotland, very beautiful! Last year (2017) we had a wonderful vacation filled with wild animals and beautiful nature in South-Africa in Sept/Oct. In May 2018 we went to Costa Rica, we had a great time, so beautiful there! I did try the travelmode of Postcrossing while we were there! Postcards have since then arrived in Canada, France, Germany, China and Russia from Costa Rica! In October we will be going to Iceland, again a great trip! Maybe I will have a go at the travelmode again!
Now we have to start thinking about where to travel to next year, so many beautiful places to go to and so little time :-)
Maybe in the text on the card you can give me some ideas of the places I have to visit in your area/country, I would love to know and maybe one day I'll even be there! :-) This does not mean that I'm only interested in touristic cards!
Besides traveling the world, I like reading books, I collect English Danielle Steel paperbacks, watching TV series like NCIS, Criminal Minds, Law and Order SVU, CSI Cyber, Grey's Anatomy, Bones, NCIS LA, Homeland.
I prefer standard size cards without an envelope and in December Christmas postcards are more than welcome!
My profile photo is me at the Pos Boom (Post Office Tree) in Mossel Bay South Africa, which we visited in Oct 2017 after reading about it here: https://www.postcrossing.com/blog/2015/02/13/the-post-office-tree
Looking forward to your card! Happy Postrossing!
