About Mikaela...

Update January 2024: UK members, please use the new Spice Girls stamps and send the SG postcards if you can 😍

~ Hi! I'm Mikaela and I was born and raised here in the autonomous and demilitarised region Åland or "Åland Islands", which belongs to Finland. I love living close to the sea and I couldn't live without it! Swedish is our official language, not Finnish, and we only have one official 'city' called Mariehamn 🇦🇽

~ I'm 35 and I just adopted my foster cat, I also have 3 more cats in the family. I love cats (obviously), reading (especially crime novels), snail mail, writing & receiving postcards and watching my favourite TV series which include Downton Abbey, The Crown, Orange is the New Black and The Office 🐈

~ I also enjoy long walks, spending time at our summer cabin, learning new languages, medieval & Tudor history, horror film, photography, autumn colours, sunny winter days, everything British & London (where I spent 3 years at University), swimming, plants..etc 🪴

~ I'm a big fan of music; punk, ska, dub, old rock bands, blues & acid rock, some indie, some grime, all kinds of heavy & industrial/electronic metal 🎧

~ I'd still like to travel more. I've visited Sweden many times, Denmark, Greenland (DK), Estonia, England, Wales, Scotland, Romania, five different Greek islands and beautiful Mauritius 🏝

~ I usually look up the addresses I get on Google Maps, it gives me an idea of where my card is going and how that person lives 🌍

~ I love pretty and colourful postcards! Anything from touristy multiviews to black & white single views. Cards of any size and shape are welcome. Please check out my favourites for inspiration, amongst them are:

* Unique places and beautiful landscapes like beaches, paradise islands, fields, lakes and mountains (preferably sent from the country of origin!) 🏜
* Cityviews and architecture of your country (cathedrals, castles, temples, famous buildings) ⛩️
* National Parks
* Postcards from the US with the state name on them 🇺🇸
* Vintage postcards 🖼
* Flowers, gardens and food 🌼🍒
* Foxes (Especially by Finnish artist Katja Saario) 🦊
* Cute cat art 🐈‍⬛
* Tausendschön, old-fashioned Christmas/Easter cards 🩷
* Spice Girls 🎶
* Squirrels and penguins 🐿🐧
* The trolls by Rolf Lidberg

~ I won't make any demands but in case you're wondering what NOT to send, I'm not a fan of sports, ad cards, modern/grotesque art or postcards with motivational quotes on them. I appreciate that some people like to send homemade/selfprinted cards but I prefer 'real' postcards.

~ I don't swap money or stamps but you're welcome to send this tealoving bookworm some tea or bookmarks! 📚🫖

~ If a card travelling to me is about to expire, please let me know!
