My first trips abroad

When my sister and I were younger, we usually spent the vacations in The Netherlands itself. Lots of classmates went abroad and I was sometimes pretty jealous of them.

German postcards added to my collection

A cute birthday present

Already this weekend I celebrated my birthday a bit. I turned 48 (!) today, 13 September. I got a few cards, some chocolate and money. My sister came with the cutest present: a pet portrait. She said she had bought it on Ali Express: a pet portrait poster. She used a picture of my cat […]
