What's the birthplace of your ancestors?
What language did you teach yourself?
Can we see a picture of that portrait?
What business did you start?
Which famous person(s) have you met?

Liesel's House & Garden Party said...

Wow a lot of questions Irma! Ü

Which mountain(s) did you climb?

We've climbed quite a few mountains in Wales, Germany and France. Too many to list here. I think the highest one I think was 'Pen y Fan' in Wales

Which art did you teach yourself?

I guess I highlighted this one because I love being creative and discovering new ways to use and create things. Paper crafting, painting, gilding etc

Where and when did you hitchhike?

Last June on Kythira. There was no public transport at all on this tiny island and our landlady told us 'it's relatively save'. We were 'picked up' by to Albanian boys - loud music, smoking cigarettes- you get the idea!

What's the birthplace of your ancestors?

Rotterdam and Katwijk-Aan-Zee. Purmerend I have yet to visit

What language did you teach yourself?

I wasn't quite sure what they meant with this question. Taught yourself or just a language you learned apart from your father's tongue.

Can we see a picture of that portrait?

If I can find, yes of course! It's a drawing made my resident in the Nursery Home where I used to work. It's pretty neat!

What business did you start?

As I said it's very minor and I'm not sure it qualifies as a business but I started a shop on Etsy =)

Which famous person(s) have you met?

André van Duin, Mary-Lou van Steenis (she is friends with my drama teacher and she came over to give her opinion and advice on our performance)'. I'm quite sure there was someone else by I who was it??

Satisfied :p

What's the name of your Etsy shop? I'd love to see your creations!
