PingaPingviini(or Hilary) is a member from Canada . She has been a member for over 6 years (2539 days).
I'm a Ph.D student at the University of Alberta. I moved here in 2011 after 4 years in St. John's, Newfoundland. I'm originally from the USA. In 2011 I went to my first Postcrossing meeting--in Finland! All postcards make me happy, and beautiful stamps are always appreciated.
My favorite postcard themes:
♥ Kaj Stenvall
♥ cursing hedgehog/kiroileva siili
And I also like:
♥ View of your town or city
♥ Winter view, sunrise/sunset, nature scenes
♥ Historic places or famous art in your country
♥ Map cards, lighthouses, ocean/lake views
♥ Penguins, cats/kittens, postcard of your cat
♥ Hedgehogs, jackalopes, lemurs
I prefer standard-sized cards (4" x 6", 10cm x 15cm).
But feel free to send anything--I like surprises! Would love if you wrote something in your own language. ♥
