About Brigitte...

Dear Postcrossers all over the world!

My name is Brigitte. I was born in 1961 and live with my husband in a small town not far away from Frankfurt/Main, Germany. Our 3 children are grown up.

I live in the countryside where you can find a lot of forests, meadows, cows, horses, chickens, sheeps, farmers, nice half-timbered houses. Everyone knows everyone.
Therefore I enjoy travelling to other towns and cities where I take part in sightseeing-tours, visit museums, cafés, bars and much more.

It`s great to meet my family and friends. We play board games, cards,
walk together, have barbecues and fun.

I want to learn about other customs or ways of life. It`s particulary instructive to sit in a street café, Biergarten, taverna etc. watching the life around. That`s culture.

I love sending and receiving postcards of every kind.

What I like:
Literature: Siegfried Lenz, Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Charles Dickens, L.Tolstoi, Michail Bulgakov, Meir Shalev etc.
Music: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Guiseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini, Georg Friedrich Händel, Queen, Elton John etc.
Detective stories: Inspector Barnaby, Lewis, Vera, Sherlock, Donna Leon, Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Wallander etc.

Visiting museums is very interesting, for example modern art, history, toys, open-air museums, oldtimer etc.

Gardening is one of my favourite hobbies because I had been a gardener. I don`t work anymore in my profession.
It is a great pleasure to walk in parks and botanicaI gardens.
For me it`s calm and interesting to go to cemeteries. The monuments, gravestones, flowers, names and ages, epitaphs and photos "say" a little bit about the dead person.

I love spring and summer. In spring life awakes after a sleepy cold winter, the birds sing, flowers bloom, trees blossom and the outdoor swimming-pool in my town opens. I like swimming.

I love cards in black and white, maps, touristic cards, self-made cards, illustrated cards like Inga Löök`s Old Ladies, funny cards.

There are so many cards which make me smile and happy. You can choose, don`t worry.
I`m really glad to find your nice postcards in my mailbox and to read something about you and your home town.

Ich habe begonnen, Chronik-Karten zu sammeln. Sie sind sehr schön und bringen interessante Informationen über die jeweilige Stadt.

Postcrossing is a wonderful project to get contact to so many fine people, I enjoy it very much.

Best wishes to all of you.
