As I have always liked sending and receiving mail, I was very happy when I came across postcrossing. A perfect way to learn more about other people and discover places in the whole world.
As for the cards I’d like to receive, take it easy! I will be happy with any nice card and I appreciate the effort you’re taking in choosing, writing and sending it. Just opening my mailbox and finding a personal note from a stranger brings a smile to my face and brightens my day every single time.
For those of you who like wishlists though, here is mine (but don't feel obligated, these are merely suggestions):
- A viewcard is always a good choice (cities, landscapes, National Parks, famous monuments…). I especially enjoy single views with the name of the place on the front, but any other card will be perfectly fine and much appreciated too.
- painted viewcards
- art of any kind and colourful illustrations
- people (street scenes, markets, b/w …)
- portraits of composers, writers, royalty, politicians and other famous people from your country
- strange, bizarre, weird cards (urban decay, propaganda, odd monuments, humour ...)
- anything from my favourites or something similar
You would make me extra happy and jump for joy if you could send me a postcard with either
- toilets or
- one of these lovely Kotovasiya cards.
Those will really make my day.
Beautiful handmade cards are more than welcome too. I simply adore creative people being all thumbs myself unfortunately.
I'm interested in who you are and how you live. Tell me something about yourself if you like, anything that comes to your mind. For me the message on the card is as important as the card itself.
Maybe you could even add a quote or a short poem in your language.
If you don't know what to write, feel free to answer one of the following questions.
1.Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but it turned out to be for the best?
2.What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
3.What smell do you like most and why?
4.If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be and why?
5.What story does your family always tell about you?
I really enjoy learning foreign languages. If you live in a French or Spanish speaking country, it would be great if you wrote in your respective native language.
Recently I started learning Russian too. It's deeply fascinating, but I'm still a beginner.
I'm looking forward to every single postcard.
Bye and happy postcrossing to you all!
