About Me

I'm back in the Netherlands for now, but going back to my Canarian home as often as I can, because there I enjoy life, walking, swimming, biking, reading, teaching, learning, swapping and writing.

When you see me walking outside, I could be listening to music or one of the many podcasts I listen to, geocaching or playing PokΓ©mon Go or Ingress.

In the Netherlands my time is divided between teaching teenagers at a highschool and cuddling calves at the farm.

I love all kinds of music, especially Jason Mraz, Juanes, Julieta Venegas and music from the 80's, rock, pop. I also love to read. Like music, I'm into all kinds of books. I like The time traveller's wife (Niffenegger), Pillars of the earth (Follet) Harry Potter, Stephen King, Belinda Bauer, Kiera Cass, Dan Brown, Virginia Andrews. Reading is like escaping, living other lives, experiencing other adventures and learning new things, thinking new thoughts.

I like writing too, join NaNoWriMo every year and am working on my third novel. www.jannekevanoorschot.nl


I'm never bored. Too much to do, too little time. I love teaching, but also learning. I like learning new languages and writing.

Bingewatching series is one of my favorite pass-times. I love series like The Gilmore Girls, Anne with an E, Lost, The Walking dead, Grace and Frankie, The Queen's Gambit, Vampire Diaries, The Big Bang Theory, Big Little Lies, The Good Doctor, Stranger things, Glee, Friends, Arrested Development,Grey's anatomy, Lucifer, Jane the virgin. I really love NETFLIX ;-) Films I like: Hair, Love actually, La vita Γ¨ bella, Sound of Music, The book thief, Harry Potter, Notting Hill, Titanic, Shawshank Redemption...

I really like sports too. I watch soccer every week. I finally have a season's ticket for NAC Breda again! I like to watch other sports too and walk, swim, bike and play darts.

Things I like

I'd love to receive postcards and other things about

TV shows and movies, like Harry Potter, GoT and series named earlier ;-)


Books and reading,


'Keep calm...',

Unicorns, mermaids,

Nijntje (Miffy), Snoopy (Peanuts), Jip en Janneke

Soccer (team, player, stadium, clublogo)

GF (already have: ByanNur, Belarus, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Germany, Japan, Latvia, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, USA)

Tea and sweets,

I don't care if you send it naked or in an envelope, whatever you like, but I like both sides equally, the card you pick for me and whatever you feel like writing on it ;-)

I'd like to receive new and surprising TEAS from all over the world. Especially strange flavours and Christmas teas!

Please note!

I will be receiving all my mail in the Netherlands, but might be sending you something from Spain.


Comment: Greetings, Janneke. I hope all is well with you. I did not receive a swap from you. Of course, I will be more than happy to alter this rating if you remedy this. Thank you.

I would enjoy this "challenge" Calendar you talk of. I would like to write you back. Hope you are enjoying the onset of 2023. Happy New Years Day! Thank you for the items you included in this swap.
Response: And... did you find the first geocache of the year yet?? I did ;-)

Comment: Bedankt voor je leuke brief. Ik heb ervan genoten. Krijg zomaar het idee dat dit niet de eerste brief is die je hebt geschreven. Bedankt voor de fijne thee variatie. Daar ga ik van genieten. En wat tof ook dat je zelf een boek hebt geschreven. Wie weet lees ik het nog weleens.
Response: Beste wensen voor het nieuwe jaar!
