Hello dear postcrosser
I am Aki and I live in Dresden. Here I study civil engineering and maintain a variety of hobbies, including martial arts, climbing, hiking, cooking evenings with friends and (quite boring) reading.
During my school days, I always asked my friends to send me postcards of their holiday destination or to bring them because I had to spend most of the school holidays at home. This developed into a wonderful passion for collecting, which I still have today. Getting cards from all over the world is just wonderful. It's like traveling without flying. So far, all cards have a special place on my living room wall. There is a large frame on which a network is stretched, on which I hang all the cards. There is still enough space for many postcards.
I look forward to a postcard from your region. I like tourist cards (more single views than multiple views). Otherwise you can make me happy with cards with mountains, climbing motifs, depictions of nature, manga motifs or pretty art cards. I also love everything that has to do with bridges, hydraulic engineering or architecture / engineering.
I would only be happy if you do not send me advertising cards that are printed on normal paper (they simply do not survive the transport) or that do not offer any space for writing and therefore do not give me any pleasure in reading. And I would be happy if you avoid cards that are too cheesy (hearts, unicorns, glitter, etc.)
But I am delighted with every card that finds its way to me. :)
The thing that makes me happiest with postcards is the text. So please write a lot. About things that come to your mind, what you want to tell or about yourself, your personality and hobbies. Name me things that make you happy, what your dream is or what you want to achieve or do. Or tell me what you have to see in your area, but not every tourist knows.
I often read "I live with my husband in XXX, I have XX children and XXX pets". I don't think this list represents your personality. Tell me more about you. I am sure you have more to tell than just your marital status. I am curious about you and should not be a criticism.
I have nothing against meeting cards. I think the idea of postcrossing meetings is great, because people who have a similar hobby meet. But please write me what you did (besides writing cards), how many took part, or how different you all were than just filling the card with stamps. I enjoy reading more than stamping. :)
Have fun writing.
I eagerly await the mail from you.
