I have collected Netherlands and its colonies – Netherlands Indies, Surinam and Curacao (comprising ABC & SSS islands: Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Saba, St Maarten, St Eustasius), since childhood and am nearing completion on the stamp side, and therefore I have spread into Postal History, Cinderellas and early KLM Flight covers.

I also started collecting British stamps and later British Commonwealth up to QEII.
I go to stamp fairs, the very welcome local shop, and buy a lot at Ebay.
