What a luxery to travel around the world as a family. What can one wish for more than to see beautiful places and cultures and to spend full time with our 10 month old daughter Mirin.
But we realize that we are lucky!

We started up 'Card for Care'. A small initiative to care a little about others. Donate 5 euro and Mirin will send you a hand written old fashioned postcard. Your donation we will double and give to a god cause.

Send us an email at mirinoverweg@gmail.com with your name and address and transfer 5 euros (or more ofcourse) to NL85INGB0003399407.

We will send you a handwritten postcard and post a picture on www.facebook.com/mirin.world when we do it.

We hope to send lots of postcards.
