Comment: Thank you for passing the postcards on to me; they will be sent out in the next swap. :) I live on a deadend, so we are only able to see the other apartment buildings out of our window. If you go around the corner though there is a bridge with a really nice view of Notre Dame. You can also see the top 1/4 of the Eiffel Tower. The first Sunday of the month is free museum day, and we try to always go to one we haven't been to before, so I'd say museums in general are my favorite places here. The Jardin des Plantes is also high on my list of favorites! For restuarants I'd have to say Ricette Ristorante and Bouillon Julien. I LOVE Disneyland Paris! It's the one and only Disneyland I've been to. I really want to get the annual pass one year, so I can see it in all seasons.
Comment: So glad they arrived in time for the next round. Thanks.
Before I moved last year I had about 550 books. I donated them to the library and senior center and only kept one of each of my favorite authors. Now I primarily read from my kindle or ipad.
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart! Wow you've had so many books!
Comment: Thank-you for sending along 2 postcards. Both will be forwarded in next round. Thanks for your Netflix suggestions. Yes, Ive seen Stranger things but none of the other suggestions. Will look them up :-) Happy Valentines Day.
Comment: Moniek - thanks so much for passing on the postcards and even more so for hosting this swap!
Over here it's already quite cold, with - 5Â°C for most of the past week - I hope you get to iceskate soon! All the best!
Comment: Sorry for the delay in rating and responding to emails. First, my computer crashed then I had to leave town for a funeral. Just got back last night. Thanks so much for your patience. Your cards got here 9/12. I left a comment on the next round on whose cards I have now. I think I'm back on track.
Thanks so much for being the hostess of this swap. Still lovin' it.
Response: Thank you very much for the rating! And thank you for getting back on track!
Comment: Received Traveling Postcard Round 54 today. Thank you for the nice note! I have read Patricia Cornwell in the past but she killled off a character that I liked and I haven't read her since. Maybe it's time to give her a chance again!
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart! Which character are you talking about? Really curious now!
Comment: Hi Moniek! The traveler has arrived and it looks like I will be sending it home! Always fun to send a pc home! TY for the lovely extra pc as well - I am addicted, so... LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Omg! I just got back home after the worse day I had in a while (buses and trams in my entire region are not working today, so I had to walk 2 hours to work and the way back was also 2 hours... and my date with my hubby got cancelled because some very smart person decided to kill himself in front of my hubby's train XD)... and then I saw your epic postcard and the world became a better place. Thank you! Such an adorable card! Can you actually fly in an air balloon there? It's one of my biggest dreams, to fly in an air balloon :P. Thank you for the information about the village! So cool!
Response: Actually, every August, there is a hot air balloon festival at the field behind the castle on the card. Over 100 hot air balloons lift up, the view is stunning. Sometimes we will be on holiday during the event, but when we are at home, we always go see them with the children. All kind of shapes, sizes, colours. Awesome!
I am sorry to hear you have had such a bad day. I hope busses/trams will be on the road again very soon. I have experienced once the same your husband did, it was awefull and I was in shock all day. It happened when I was on my way to a Posctrossing meeting.
Anyways, thanks for the rating, the heart and this lovely swap! :-)
Comment: I love your board! Those strawberry Santas are fantastic! And I love the shot of the skaters on the canal in front of the windmills in your country! Reminds me of my dad reading us "Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates" when I was very little. Thanks for sharing!
Response: :-) Thank you for the rating and the heart!
Comment: I don't know where to begin because I am so moved by your thoughtfulness. I have never received a swap as wonderful as this one. I am SO THANKFUL for your AMAZING package! I cannot thank you enough! I wish I could give you 100 hundred hearts because you deserve so many for going SO above and beyond for this swap. It is evident that you read my profile and not only sent me my favorite items, but wrapped them individually with care. I would be HONORED to do a private swap with you so I can shower you with the kindness you have given me. Thank you from the depths of my heart. It is swappers like you that make this site so wonderful.
Response: You make me blush! :-) You are very welcome, it was my pleasure sending it to you! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thanks for sharing your boards with me. I like all 3 of them but if I had to choose a favorite it would be the elephants. They are so darn cute, especially the baby ones when they get mad tee hee
Comment: Thank you very much Moniek! :) I just came home from a little trip, and it was a very nice surprise to open your envelope; I appreciate a lot how much effort you put to this swap. :) I haven't opened the little envelopes yet, I'll start the tea week on Monday, and now I wish it would be already tomorrow! (Hehe, crazy to wait Monday! :))
Response: It was a pleasure making it like this! I hope you like all the teas I picked for you!
Comment: Hello Moniek! I received your happy mail with the kawaii inside together with the yellow polka paper (I love it!!) and the sticker sheets and memo sheets. I love them all! thank you for the swap!! Definitely a happy mail ãƒ¾ï¼ˆ*âŒ’ãƒ®âŒ’*ï¼‰ã‚ž
Response: I am so glad it arrived and that you like it! Thanks for the rating and the heart!!
Comment: Hoi Moniek, Dank je wel voor de spulletjes die je mij gestuurd hebt. Ik ga er wat leuks mee doen en de thee ga ik lekker opdrinken. Ik ken ze en ze zijn zo lekker. Misschien tot een volgende keer. Groetjes Laura
Comment: Thanks a lot for sending me exactly the kind of tea I like - I really appreciate this and can't wait to try it :) Good luck with your granny squares - I've not yet started mine as I'm still looking for the right kind of wool.
Response: You are very welcome! I havent started them either yet, I was still working on the basic steps. ;-) Good luck to you too!
Comment: Moniek, YAY! :) Soooooo happy that you got me again (sorry for you, though, LOL - I hope you're not bored)! :) These stickers were even better than the other ones you sent! I love them all (just like the other set)! Hehehe, you rock so much! I love each and every one of them. Happy Birthday to your dad! My dad turned 68 on March 14th :) Hope to see you again on here sometime! Take care and thanks again very much for the wonderful swap :)
Response: It was my pleasure! I love picking out nice things, I am glad you like them!
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card, Moniek, and all the information about your sweet family! I visited Amsterdam briefly on my way to Africa, and fell in love with windmills like the ones in your postcard...:)
Response: I am glad you like it! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Dank je voor de zaadjes (wel beetje jammer dat het zakjes van de Action zijn...).
Response: Dank je wel voor de rating! Vraagje: waarom zijn de zaadjes van de Action niet goed dan? Er stond ook nergens dat je alleen zaden van een dure winkel mocht sturen. Ik heb ze hier zelf ook altijd en ze zijn net zo goed als alle andere (lees=duurdere) merken. Ik had zelfs een extra zakje erbij gedaan.
Comment: Moniek! Yay! You sent me the very first thing I have received from Swap-bot. I received your package today and am so excited. Thank you for the care you took in picking out the items and for sending more items than required, even! The postcard was cute and I especially like the washi tape! I love everything! Thank you again :)
Response: You are ver welcome! I am glad you like it! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Thank you for choosing a very typical scene from your country. I visited the Netehrlands 20 years ago so some of the details of my trip are starting to fade. I enjoy receiving postcard reminders. Thank you also for choosing a UNESCO site for me.
Response: You are very welcome! I collect Unesco myself too so I was hoping this one was missing in your collection! Thanks for the rating and the heart!
Comment: Moniek, thank you for the lovely sunflower postcard. I used to grow sunflowers when I was a kid, we would wait and wait for them to sprout their seeds, then spend the afternoon shelling them and eating them. I can't believe you are from the Netherlands, this is my second postcard from your country. Thank you so much.
Comment: Oh dear, you went over and beyond! I've never seen those teas before and the magnet is awesome and all those cutesy stickers and you found cards with Thai cats on them and and and... Squeee! ^___^ If I could give more hearts, I would. I just hope you'll like what I sent even half as good or I might have to send you another package... o__0
Response: You are very welcome, it was such a pleasure to do this! :-)))
Comment: Thanks for sending. I was cracking up at all of your MJ references. I don't collect anything by/of him, but his would have been the only concert I ever cared to go to. And hahaha @ your sound system and the neighbours. :)
Comment: Thanks for your lovely long message :) And sorry for the little bit late rating, I have a test tomorrow so I'm studying hard for that :( I'm going to reply to your message when I have a little bit more time :)
Response: Thnk you very much for your rating, my first and a heart right away! You are very welcome too, I simply love writing! I was a bit afraid it might have been too long. :-)
Good luck with your test tomorrow, I will keep my fingers crossed for you!
