My name is Aurelia. I'm 42 years old and live with my husband in Middle Franconia, a district of Bavaria. My hometown Nuremberg is famous for its “Kaiserburg“, the emperor's castle, and for the "Christkindlesmarkt", its Christmas market.
When you visit, you should try a “Schäufele“ (braised pig's shoulder) and the original "Elisenlebkuchen": a high-class gingerbread, best with dark chocolate. If you're lucky, you find a bakery offering "Schneeballen" (snowballs), a franconian pastry elaborately made from entwined shortcrust stripes, in a ball-like shape, powdered with cinnamon sugar. Its unique and really delicious.
About me: I care very much for our two cats, and I'm in love with elephants since my childhood. My hobbies are cooking, reading (Stephen King, Terry Pratchett, Marian Keyes...), and travelling, especially to Asia. Paris is my all-time favorite city.
I'm into TV series: The Simpsons, Sex & the City, Mad Men, Game of Thrones. I love animated films like Despicable Me, WallE, Pets - and epic movies like StarWars and Lord of the Rings.
Listening to music recharges my inner battery: I love jazz like Gregory Porter; acid jazz like Jamiroquai; funk like Prince; pop music like Michael Jackson; electronica like Björk; and the sound of the 80's.
Autumn is my favorite time of the year.
Postcrossing means for me sending little rays of joy to strangers to brighten up their day. 🌞 That's why I love choosing for each recipient a matching postcard, combined with lovely stamps.
If asked about my preferences, I'd say that I have a sweet spot for illustrations - I love illustrated viewcards and colourful, luminous paintings; artists like Leonid Afremov, Thomas Kinkade, Irina Garmashova, Rina Zeniuk, Alexey Dolotov, Valérie Michaut, Séverine Pineaux...
I like odd and funny themes (Inkognito!), black&white, and awesome ad cards.
Beautiful touristy viewcards of your region - with your story, please! - are also nice.
Oh, and I'm thrilled by postcards of cats 🐈♥ and elephants 🐘♥. Obviously. 😉
Just surprise me, each postcard chosen with care will make me happy. Could you please write the date on it? I'll upload every postcard's picture to embellish my wall. (My favourites are mostly postcards I received.)
🇫🇷 Chers Postcrosseurs francophones: Je serais ravie de recevoir vos cartes écrites en français! 🇫🇷
