About Titia...

Hi,
Nice to meet you! Maybe you (complete stranger to me, anywhere in the world) are about to send me (complete stranger to you, in a small country) a postcard.
I'm Titia, copywriter, married and a mother of three (15, 10 and 8 y.o.). Someone who inspires me is the German poet Jochen Klepper. My website about him: http://jochenklepper.nl/wp/.
I love nature, reading, studying for fun and I'm a bit of a hermit - that is when I find the time to be one.

I like most cards (as long as they're family proof). I give you some suggestions, but if you want, go ahead and surprise me!
ღ Maximum cards ♥
ღ (old) ships from your country, harbours
ღ old trading centers / routes
ღ Hanse cities and kogge ships
ღ art from your country, traditional or contemporary
ღ your culture (festivities, national costume, music, legends, poetry...)
ღ history, especially middle ages
ღ (vintage) postcards about communism
ღ saints, icons from your area
ღ flora and fauna of your country
ღ Fauna of Belarus
ღ Calligraphy, old handwritings
ღ nature's wonders, cosmos, aurora borealis & australis
ღ UNESCO
ღ vintage
ღ this time of year: religious themed Christmas postcards, like nativity scenes

I don't like:
☂ (modern) buildings
☂ cats, dogs, other pets (on cards)
☂ cards from calenders or postcardbooks
☂ cards representing another country than your own

♫ I appreciate a nice stamp!
♫ There are certain stamps I'd love to receive - but don't worry if you don't have them:
♪ Insects and spiders ♥
♪ Scented stamps, such as chocolate stamp from Belgium
♪ Commemorative stamps, e.g. WWI
♪ Ships
♪ 'Europa' stamps
♪ Nature themes
♪ Art themes
♪ LT and XU: Postcrossing stamp
♪ US, DE, RU: other than standard international stamp
♪ this time of year: Christmas stamps

♫ Don't forget to tell me something about YOU on the postcard.
♫ Be my teacher. Tell me something I don't know about your country.
♫ Bitte schreib mir auf Deutsch!
♫ Merci de m'écrire en français!

Let's exchange some beautiful cards!

One more thing: My last name is Lindeboom. It's the name of a tree with heartshaped leaves - Tilia in Latin. Could you tell me the name of this tree in your language, with the right characters? That would be wonderful!
So far I have, thanks to several postcrossers (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
