About Me

I am proud of my 800+ 5 ratings I always send my swaps so when not received please contact me before rating. I'm happy to re-send

I'm a 36-year-old, living with my husband in a large city in the south of the Netherlands.

I am a World War II reenactor 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.

Always willing to do a private swap!

Comment: Thank you so much for the list! Cant wait to listen to them :D
Comment: Great list. I like Jughead too in "riverdale"
Comment: That's definitely a very different list than mine, but it holds some good characters. I watched Outlander for a few episodes, but for me a bit too explicit. I did like some of the characters and the general storyline though. I liked Jamie as a character too. Thanks for sharing.
