About Me

I'm a 35-year-old teacher, living with my husband and our bird Tiko in a large city in the south of the Netherlands..

I am a World War II re-enactor for about 10 years now. Depending on the event, I play the role of a nurse or a member of the Dutch resistance. It's amazing to teach children about life during World War II and let them touch items which are normally only displayed in museums.

I'm a collector of postcards and elongated coins (pressed pennies) So if you have any pressed pennies lying around which you're willing to send to me will be rewarded with a postcard of your choice.

Always willing to do a private swap!

  • Postcards (see my fav. list below)
