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.
I have 3 grown children and a granddauhter born in March 2020, and a grandson born in April 2021. 💕
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, Donna Leon, Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Wallander 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 mag Chronik-Karten sehr gerne.
Postcrossing is a wonderful project to get contact to so many fine people, I enjoy it very much.
Best wishes to all of you.
