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. My favorite places so far are: Australia, South-Africa, New York, whale watching in West-Canada, Vienna, Barcelona, ...
In 2016 we did a tour around North-England and Scotland, very beautiful! And we had a relaxing vacation on the island of Lanzarote Spain. Last year we had a wonderful vacation filled with wild animals and beautiful nature in South-Africa in Sept/Oct. And in May/June we went to Denmark. Now we have to start thinking about where to travel to this year, so many beautiful places to go to and so little time :-) Well we now booked a vacation to Costa Rica and Nicaragua, really looking forward to it! And maybe I will try the travelmode of Postcrossing while we are there!
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!
