Storyline

You are Lysa Jansen. In your mother's attic, you find a box of old post cards, scrawled with handwritten greetings of love. The greetings and warm wishes fill you with peace. The address on each one is Anieliersgracht 56, Amsterdam, and each one is signed, 'MJ.'
Intrigued, you send a postcard to the address asking for more information. Two weeks later, it returns marked, 'RETURN TO SENDER.'

You try to forget about them, but you just can't.

Who sent the postcards? The answer lies in Amsterdam

The route was very beautiful and we got to know new areas in this neighbourhood. The challenges were too simple. The story was not super engaging and a bit too complicated. Celine was not likeable. We would have liked more challenges in the directions we should take. They were given out directly but we think it would be interesting to make the users figure it out.
