About Aija...

Hi fellow postcrossers!

I'm teacher (56 yrs) from eastern Finland living in a little village called Kontiolahti (under 15 000 inhabitants) 20km north from Joensuu. I live in a big old brick house with ongoing renovation together with my dear husband Jarmo and our youngest son Jalo (19 yrs). He is performing his military service at Kajaani, but comes home every weekend. Our other sons live in their own. Juho (25 yrs) is a computer technician living in Joensuu, Juuso (23 yrs) is a sawmill process operator in Lieksa and Jaakko (21 yrs) works as a car painter in Joensuu. And as you may guess, my most precious moments are those when all the boys are at home at the same time.

I've recieved many beautiful landscapes all over the world and so I made a 'world map' of them on our bedroom's rear wall. There is abt 160 cards now, but a lack of cards from South America and Africa (where we have only few members). So if you have travelled there,I would appreciate to receive one of your souvenir cards.

I like especially cards of people, old black&white cards, cards with slogan or very bright colors, old castles and cards about cultural celebrations. Also ad cards are wellcome both old and new. If you're wondering what to write on your card tell me about the card you've chosen or just write what you see from your window or recommend me an interesting book.

May the year 2014 carry out the best of your expectations!
