Back after a full year Swap Bot Break. New life, new energy so back to swapping now!
I worked many years as a lawyer and legal advisor but since 2012 I am legally disabled so live on a disability benefit I do work as a volunteer in a Maritime History Museum. Beside that I am also a volunteer in the Dutch Ducati Owners Club (DCN). One day a week I work as a legal advisor in AZC (refugee Camp) in Holland.
One of my hobbies is to ride my motorbike. It is adapted to my disabilities. Other things I love to do are crafting, reading and embroidery. I love to try new crafts and that is one of the reasons I love Swap bot!
Unfortunately surgery on my hands went a bit wrong and that makes crafting a challenge but i just need to do things with my hands to keep them working as good as it gets.
Please look at my Likes and Dislikes before sending me something extra!!!
The Perfume (Patrick Suskind)
De Overgave (Arthur Japin)
All books by Robin Hobb
All plays en sonnets by Shakespeare
The songs of Ice and Fire (George RR Martin)
Discovery of Heaven (Harry Mulisch)
But also... history of Zeeland, History of Europe, Archeological sites, Paleographic books, Books about history and books about famous persons in history etc. I read about 5 books a week so there are many many many books I love
I like blues and Jazz, but also music like Saybia, Kovacs, Queen, Pink Floyd, Muse, Coldplay, Kensington, Adele etc. I also like classic music a lot. Makes me relax when I need it. My favorite classic cd is Officium by Jan Garbarek & the Hilliard Ensemble.
I'm not religious at all, but I love to hear gregorian music in a church, abbey or cathedral.
Embroidery is my favorite, but I love to explore other crafts and be inspired on Etsy and Pinterest.
I also paint and draw. But it's not that easy to make it the way I want it to be.I try though, and hope you'll like what I made for you !
If you send me a postcard, please read this!!!!! I love:
motorcycles, I do prefer the old ones or racing bikes. Please no Harley's
"arty" postcards, no mainstream things please.
I also really like that one card that you just don't dare to send to anyone.. :) I'm not afraid of bones, horror, skulls and other creepy stuff!
Tea is my favorite drink! I just don't like any fruit taste. I'm allergic to fruits (really, this is not a joke) and I don't like the taste of it. The one and only exeption is LEMON. I like Lemontaste!
So If you send me any tea, please send herbal tea, black tea of green tea, anything will do as long as there's no fruit in there :)
