About Bowyum...

Hi, Some information about myself. My wife and I live in far northern New South Wales, Australia, around 30 km from the nearest town, on an unsealed road which comes to an end at a National Park. So we are living in a rural environment. Lots of wildlife - koalas, kangaroos, kookaburras, 8 species of parrots and cockatoos, not to mention snakes and one and a half metre long monitor lizards (known as goannas in Australia).

The cards on my Favourites Wall are those that I like and do not have, but any kind of card relating to your country or your travels is of interest to me - free cards are welcomed, especially those advertising events in your local area. Some favourite topics -

Wildlife of your country, particularly birds
All transport, with cruise ships being my main interest
Post Offices, postal themes, stamps, etc.
Maximum cards
Postcrossing themes, such as meet ups, Greetings from etc.

When I send cards, I usually try to obtain a hand cancel/postmark of the Post Office that I send the card from. However, not all Post Offices offer this service. I think it makes the cards more interesting.

Please do not send your card in an envelope. I like cards sent through the postal system with an Air Mail or Priority sticker if possible please.

The Koala photo used as my avatar was taken around 10 metres from my front door.

I look forward to getting a card from you in the future.
