Hi everyone! I'm Alyona(26), in relationship but not married, child free, living and working in Kiev. I try to be active all the time and taste as much as possible in this life.
I work for a global company, what means being a real "office bound worm". In order to counterbalance, I try to do as many as possible open air activities, and the favorite ones are alpine skiing and backpacking. Also, some time ago I discovered for myself a joy of horse riding. I can't get to the stable however as often as I'd like to, because it's quite expensive in the big city. You can see one of my "little" friends on the avatar!:-)
Since short time I became a happy owner of a dog, white Swiss shepherd, almost 1 year old, currently all my free time is dedicated to breeding and teaching him.
Regarding card subjects: you can send me really ANYTHING (also interesting AD cards are welcome), but with only exception:
what I unfortunately totally DISLIKE - are standard tourist cards, especially multiviews (such as urban city views, sightseeing objects, local tourist attractions, ordinary scenery cards with "Greetings from..." titles and so on). Therefore it would be the best solution if you just keep them for many other people who will enjoy such cards...
Of course, I'll understand if you don't have others than tourist cards (it's not always possible to have a good variety of card themes, especially in small towns). So I'd be already happy with at least a SINGLE view showing a little piece of nature.
Thank you VERY MUCH in advance for making an effort and respecting the receivers' preferences! In my opinion, it's the main idea of PC and this is what I mostly enjoy in the process - to choose the proper card which would make my receiver happy.
Card subjects which make me extra pleased:
♥ Mountains, volcanoes
♥ any beautiful wild nature landscape
♥ alone standing trees, forest, river, sea or ocean
♥ 4 seasons, especially winter and snowy landscapes
♥ horses in motion
♥ "old style", vintage posters, old cards from the flee market
♥ arty things: paintings, drawings, illustrations
♥ black and white photos, especially expressive portraits
♥ history/archeology related, antique items and interiors, indigenous people in traditional dressing, old architecture, ancient culture etc (in other words, anything to do with "old times")
♥ astronomy/geology: space, stars, planets, stones, minerals
♥ traditional or modern dancing, ballet
♥ any unusually shaped cards
♥ humor, cartoons
►►I love using as many as possible interesting and non-standard stamps and appreciate if you do the same for me
►►I have two PC accounts, thus sometimes we get matched with some people twice :-) I appreciate if you check my received cards on both profiles, as since recent time I receive really many duplicates:
►►Dear senders speaking GERMAN or SPANISH: please better write in your native language
