About Calialf...

Thanks for visiting my page! I am an English teacher and lover of languages. If you want to, feel free to make up a story on your card. You can pretend to be anyone from any time or place! Write in your language or any other.

Вы можете мне писать по русски. Я люблю великий, могучий правдивый и свободный русский язык! :) (Я тоже люблю русские почтовые марки.)

Please write the date and your City & Region on the card. Thank you!

Not necessary, but appreciated, below are my wishlist & collections. Besides these I also like UNESCO sites, local culture, symbols & maps. A fully written postcard is always a treat.

Other ideas for writing: Copy a famous poem from your culture. Explain some local slang. Tell me about a good book or meal or your favorite animal, memory, or something that frightens you. Maybe write a little song, or proverb. Creative cards with drawing & decorations are fun.

My PC Favorites are cards I would like to receive.

I collect: Stamps, coins, currency, magnets, pins (значки), coasters (cup/beer pads). You can contact me if you are interested in a swap of these materials.

Thanks so much for reading. Happy Postcrossing!
