About Ellen...


Nice to meet you!

I want to tell you how much I'm still enjoying it! It's a new hobby ( became an addiction) and brings me every day a lot of pleasure and happiness.

My name is Ellen, I just retired and have always worked as a nurse in a hospital. Most years in medical psychology/ psychiatry.
And I do my best to make another postcrosser happy / smile..

One postcrosser wrote this and I think it is so true!!

`It`s not about receiving and collecting cards - it`s about sharing a part of yourself with the world. Influencing people and leaving your mark in a place you may not ever get to visit. It`s about connecting. It`s putting a smile on a face you never get to meet.
It makes my day better. `

Traveling is one of my hobbies, meeting and learning about other people, countries, cultures, nature and history.
My favorite colour is blue / turquoise
Other hobby's: reading, music of the sixties and seventies, Latin music and playing djembee.
It's very interesting to learn from the past, the Inca's / Maya's.

Cards that would make me very happy are:

* POSTCROSSING MEETUP cards or related to Postcrossing
* WPD cards (any year)
* G F cards official or not official, icons/ flags of countries
* UNESCO - world heritage
* cards related to Buddhism
* Peru and Mexico
* colorful street (fruit) markets
* Inge Löök, John Bauer, Sven Nordqvist ( illustrator/ artist)
* fairy tales, gnomes, trolls
* Christmas cards in Nov / Dec / Jan

But you can surprise me as well.. Any card that you would like to receive, will do.

Some beautiful or unusual stamps are very welcome!

And now about you:
I`d love to hear something about you and what your life is like.
What is important for you? What makes you happy? What makes your day? What do you worry about?

Maybe you can tell your favorite quote.
Your dream? Your secret?

Take care!

Looking forward to hearing from you and learn about your part of the world.

Thank you!

P.S. If you have sent me a postcard, and I didn't registered it within 30 days, please message me and I'll register your card. I know it's not your fault if postcards go missing in the mail.
